If you are having trouble with your tent not being as quite as you wish than do not threat as I know some amazing ideas which will help reduce the noise.

Soundproof a Tent

Soundproof a Tent

1. Carpeting

One of the cheaper end easiest ways to soundproof would be to lay carpeting down, thick carpets works best absorbing the bass frequencies which travel through the ground.

2. Moving Blankets

These blankets are known to be great for absorbing sound and they are not too expensive either. All you will need to do is hang them in your tent against the walls and they will act as a sound barrier.

3. Acoustic Barriers

This material is used if recording studios granting it a great material to use. It can be on the more expensive side but I believe it is worth every penny.

When purchasing the material companies size them to a room size in a house or studio so you may have to cut the material down to the size of your tent.

4. Building a Structure

This tip is aimed more for those who will be living in a tent for at least a few days and more as building and placing a temporary structure can still take up a lot of time.

You will need to build and assemble a wooden frame around you tent and attach materials which can insulate sound onto the wooden beans.

5. Destructive interference

The bases of this theory is about using the sound waves from the source to counteract that of another. If you use a speaker and point it to the direction in which the sounds are coming from your sound waves should in affect stop the other noises from reaching your tent.

The only downfall to this is that you will need to have noise in order to council out the other noise and depending on the frequencies and volumes it may not always work.

6. Curtains

There are some great curtains on the market which are thick and designed to help block out sound and light.

You could always purchase your desired curtains and hang them in your tent having them act as a sound barrier.

7. White Noise Machines

For a quick and easier solution you could always try a white noise machine. These machines are designed to do one thing and one thing only, to create white noise.

The White noise acts as barrier for any outside noises giving you an opportunity of a peaceful sleep.

8. Earplugs

If you are looking for a solution which is cheap, takes no the to set up, easy to use, lightweight and can be even carried on a small bag than I would suggest the simplicity of earplugs.

You can not go wrong with these, to me they are one of the most effective ways to cancel out noise.

9. Noise-cancelling Headphones

They do what it says in the name, they cancel out noise and are a great alternative to earplugs especially if you find something on your ear quite uncomfortable.

These headphones can be quite expensive but in my opinion are worth it and You can purchase them in various designs what is not to like.
