    Foam - Even LOTS of foam, isn't going to soundproof your room. Not even a little tiny bit.

    A semi-effective alternative would be to double or triple the thickness of the existing drywall. 1 or 1.5 inches thick per side does a fairly decent job of cutting down on transmission.

    A more effective alternative would be rebuilding the wall...

    Spoon-feed a newbie an answer and he'll mix for a day -
    Spark his curiosity to find the answer himself and he'll mix for a lifetime. [/size]

    I think he meant treat rather than sound proof.

    There is a product called Tontine which is much better than any foam, fit these is a frame and stretch some cotton/lycra over it to make some attractive panels. Dont rest them against the walls though...
