Building a Booth

Hello folks...

Im helping out a small club to build a new booth...its on a second floor of an older building and the floor is a bit bouncy...the Turntables will be decoupled but Im wondering on what you guys would recommend for building the booth....

we are thinking of building it on top of 2 sono tubes filled with sand...

any thoughts?

be careful of the total weight,
if the floor is already bouncy maybe it should be reinforced?

Yea, how much weight can the floor hold per sq area? If someone slams on a record and the entire support falls through and kills someone, it's your ass that goes to jail.

What is bouncy, exactly? Being on the second floor, I'd think you would have much fewer problems with the subs or dancers. If the area around the booth is the problem, see if the floor joists can be decoupled, but also check about the integrity of the floor in general! Some rubber bands or squash balls might be all you need, but maybe you need a structural engineer to o.k. the entire thing!

liability (for the installer and owners) is exactly what i was thinking of....
(and safety of the patrons)



better to play safe rather than be sorry later on IMHO

F___K the patrons ...you will have there money long before the floor falls out from underneath them. J/K I am in construction and you really do have to watch that kind of stuff.

well, the existing booth is built on top of a small stage, and below is hardwood floors. ideally I would like to build it off the floor and not off the stage, well have to take a look. the place is well built I know the previous owner took care of the place and I wouldn't be worried about anything going through the floor. right now the surface (table) on which the turntables are on are suspended from the ceiling, which doesnt seem to make a difference....
