    Hi all - I rent a room and it has a vent above the door that is useless as it leads only to the hall. It is very decorative :confused: but it is also a VERY good conduit for house noise. I want to fill the gap between the vents with cork or some other cheap sound dampening material. Is there anything cheap that I can use to put in the gap, which is 13" x 6" x 6" deep?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Look in the big box store near you (Lowe's, The Home Depot, etc.)
    They should have ceiling tiles that can be easily cut to size and you should be able to cut more than one to that size from one tile!
    Cheap, light, small enough to handle even in a car :)
