Simply Build It

I have solved this problem by completely filling the space between the joists with fibre glass and creating a second ceiling fixed to the walls.
This worked. How the fibre glass by itself contributed I don't know.
I appreciate this solution will cost, but whoever designed your setup was mad.
Can you not move the toilet to somewhere else?
