    Ya, making a little sound proof box is your best bet. Make your box but dont put on the top yet. Take another piece of wood the same size as your ends and cut out a slot on the top big enough to fit your cables through. Nail it in the middle of your box as a divider. Cover all the inside with some sort of sound dampening material. Put a hole for your cables in the bottom on one side of the divider. Place it on a outside, bottom corner of your booth and put another hole on the other side of the divider and through a bottom corner of your booth (It would probally be easier to not add the divider untill this point). Nail the box to the booth. Feed your wires up the hole, over the divider (cables in the little slot)and through the hole into your booth. Nail the cover on the box once all your cables are through.

    Having the divider and all the sound dampening material will keep it more soundproof.

    sounds good when im just talking in it...good voice but no echo.

    but if it does...I can buy bass traps and put them in the corners.

    props man i know you dont care about sound gettin out and you've stated that theres barely any noise in the room but if you wanted to "seal" the deal you could caulk all the corners but props see if you could come up with some blueprints for that shit

    shit...total was probably around 250...i didnt really look for any bargains or anything...but i think thats a really good price...i got all the foam on major sale...more than 60% off...so I was able to cover the whole inside of the booth for about 60 bucks...
