Hey all...i am currently building a basement project studio...and i have one big question that google couldnt answer. I am building a small iso booth primarily for vox dubs and possibly guitar cab iso...the room wont be soundproof because i dont have that kind of money but i will try to make it as much so as possible. My question is...there is an AC cable going right thru the top of it in the studs...i can move it a bit...but i was toying with the idea of a recessed light in there. In the past i have had issues with microphones sounding thin if placed too close to an overhead junction box. Is that something i should consider with a jbox or recessed can overhead? Or was it perhaps a faulty jbox in my previous experience?.

Is there anything wrong with running a cable under the door? If it's not sound proofed that should work just fine.

Start saving oldboxes,duvets and other bric n brac. Great for sound alteration. M

Been lookin at this post and I just don't get it. I can see power injecting a 50/60 cycle hum depending where you are on the planet, but I just can't imagine thin. Wireless mic ok. To much dampening, ok. Other acoustic snafus ok. I've heard of folks creating air tight seals around electrical boxes, but that is a function of sound proofing not acoustic treatment. It's never a great idea to run mic cable in the same conduit with other signal carrying wire or cable, but that doesn't sound like the problem here. Are you sure there wasn't some other influence causing the "thin"?
