About 4 years ago I built a really good double wall (drywall) alternating stud sound booth to house my TLM 103. I have a tiny bit of a noise floor, but it is nothing anyone has complained about for national spots. I do hear a helicopter fly over, but I also live ½ mile from RR tracks, and I am inner city: these sounds don’t get picked up.
I am selling my condo and need to remove the booth. The booth is also almost 5x5 and takes up space that some potential buyer might look at.
I want to build a smaller room; Just enough for me to fit inside and read. I was thinking of something 2ft 6in, x 2ft 6 in, or 3'x3' with a door. I may skip the double pane window. 6 ½ ft in height would be good since I am 6.0.
I would like to be able to break this down and carry it out. I can’t do this with my current booth. It has to be torn apart.
Would this small of a booth kill VO sound? My current room has marine carpeting and auralex. It is pretty dead. I am also about 6-8 inches off the mic.
Can I use fiber or press board as a single wall, use drywall screws to assemble the sides and top? I will have casters on the base. If I was to use basic bathroom caulking in the corners would that keep out any incoming bleeding sound? I will just paint the outside and put marine carpet in the inside. I will also baffle it for air vents.
Please offer some viable solutions. Will press board work or not? Should I try something else, or just scrap the whole project altogether.
I am 200 lbs and I know it is going to be a tight fit, but I really need 6-8 inches off the TLM-103.
