I'm setting up a media space/room in an unfinished basement. It has a concrete floor, exposed ceiling (you can see the joists), three unfinished walls and the fourth side where the furnace and entrance to the space is. Needless to say the sound travels upstairs to the main floor and its relatively loud. How can I kind of sound proof this space so that it doesn't annoy my family upstairs?

Thanks in advance

Check out any number of basement build threads in the Dedicated Theater Builder forum, one up from this one...

And read all the articles on the subject over at The Soundproofing Company. Ted is a very frequent poster here.

Post a sketch of the space, too.
