How much does fiberglass reduce noise?
The benefits that you can expect from fiberglass are, again, absorption of the sound, and the reduction rate of noise that you can expect from it would be up to five decibels, and probably not less than three. The fiberglass layer is often just a few inches thick, and you can’t expect wonders from it.
What is acoustic fiberglass?
Fiberglass Acoustic Wall Panels and Mineral Fiber Acoustical Wall Panels are sound-absorbing panels placed on walls or ceilings to control sound and reduce noise, eliminating slap echo and control comb filtering. The objective is to enhance sound qualities by improving the sound quality with sound-absorbing panels.
Are acoustic panels better than foam?
However, acoustical foam is really only effective at absorbing high-end frequencies, meaning if you have trouble with mid-frequencies or bass, then foam most likely will not greatly improve your sound situation. This is why you typically see acoustic panels being used in professional recording studios over foam alone.

For rooms with longer walls, the height of panels will often be staggered in effort to spread out the acoustic treatment on the wall.
How thick should my acoustic panels be?
Acoustic panels typically come in thicknesses of either 2″ or 4″. And while traditional wisdom states that thicker is better… In this case, 2″ panels are considered the industry standard. They won’t absorb frequencies as low as 4″ panels, but that’s OK.
How much difference do acoustic panels make?
Acoustic panels enhance the comfort and function of every space, whether residential or commercial. They absorb sound and create a superior atmosphere. Acoustical panels lessen overall sound in the room, filter any outside sounds around it, and remove any unwanted noise or background sound inside the room.
