I am building a 4x6 box blind and want to sound proof it. I am think8ng about 1.5" egg creat foam and have 2 questions. Approximately how much will I need and should expect to budget. Can I get by not covering all the wall surface? Also considering carpet pad and any alternative material.
Thanks in advance for your imput.

Z

Sounds like overkill, unless you're wanting insulation value as well.
Carpet and pad on the floor, or double layer of carpet. If it still sounds like a drum when you drop something, consider foam insulation board on the floor from underneath, or rubber horse mats inside.
Carpet half way up the walls.
Get a chair that doesn't squeak.

Just remember that insects/wasps, rats and what ever else that can get into the blind will love what ever you put in there.

lease.

Maybe dyna mat or a similar product they use for speaker installs. Might smell for a bit and it's messy

Buy some Bifen XTS to kill all the critters that will inhabit the sound proofing material. I use 1/2in foam boards on the bottom half, I liquid nail it to the wall and paint black.

Thanks. So you use foam board on the lower portion of the walls?

We stapled office carpet squares to the walls in our blinds. No issues with bugs or pests of any kind. Get them from the Habitat for Humanity Re Store. You could probably outfit an entire blind from that place.
