Turntable isolation and consoles

Im going to get a dj console built in the next year or so

the top is designed and measured but the bottom/ feet etc isnt

my current setup (2 tresle tables with a coffin on top and decks on top of that) gets a lot of feedback when you walk about etc

with regards to full size dj consoles, whats the best means of effective isolation

i was thinking of having a couple of compartments installed at the bottom and filling them with concrete breezeblocks

thoughts?

Hi,
There is a lot of info regarding isolation turntables in this forum
The best is to try diffrent methods, depending on your necessities.

Try with options that yu can change easily. so you dont have any problem from going from one option to another.
Good luck, check past post about this topic

have you tried "isolation" in the search function? this topic has been discussed a lot on here. don't expect to get a definite answer.

ive looked at a few solutions - suspended wires (no), baloon-type things under the decks (no), new feet for decks (possibly)

as looking more for tips on how to build the bottom of the console to reduce f/b sory if i wasnt clear

would a larger area of feet/ legs at the bottom of the console reduce feedback (ie large feet, or even a flush bottom as opposed to small, spiky feet)

would concrete blocks placed in specially made compartments at the bottom of the console (this will be a full size console) reduce f/b

sounds anal but if im paying for a custom console id rather pay a bit more and do it properly

it depends on the size of the soundsystem your gonna play on

cinder blocks with sandbags on top works great and levels perfectly

other than that the rla suspension works good too

I fthat console will be a permanent instalation

under the turntables you can add Sand, like 2 inches or 3, and a 1/2 inch Glass on the top of the sand ( Under the TT) to avoid feedback,

What kind of floor is the one you have? you mention that you have noises and feedback when you walk..

You have pictures??

then added mass is your answer...

unless you go for special feet...


How effective are the Isonoe feet in a room that has a floor that's kinda bouncy?

While the topic is up--anyone know anything about Kabusa's sorbothane Sonic Domes? Want some iso for a one-off thing, pretty much, and that's a price I could deal with.

Peece,

we use the ISONOE feet on most consoles these days, i find them great for feed back but they aren't the solution for bouncy rooms. try mounting the console off the roof or walls and/or make it really heavy using sand of concrete pavers (available at most nursery's) also construct the frame out of hardwood or steel (if you know a welder). if you have heaps of cash and like a project we have been messing around with FireStone industrial isolation air-bags with very good results.

cheers, kieren.
