That would not work well. You need more mass (like from standard 5/8" drywall) and a damping compound. The system needs the damping compound in contact with the subfloor. So damping compound and more mass is needed under the subfloor.

R19 fiberglass.

The ceiling will be way too light with a single drywall layer. You'll want to add a sheet of 5/8" drywall, preferably with damping compound.

GDR1- The RC-2 does not decouple, as long as you understand that. You would have to ask the manufacturer how they want it spliced. It is not a product we ever work with for several reasons.
