Don & bionet.audiology:

I used 3" Sonex over all the walls (plasterboard) and that worked very
well. Sonex on inside of door, overhung all door jams. Door was solid
wood. A special weatherstripping on door - doorjam contact. A gasketed
threshold mounted on flloor to meet bottom of door.  Double hung, double
gasketed Andersen windows worked reasonably well. Bought an IAC patch
panel.  The only unexpected source of noise was the Air Ventilation
system.  Had to install an external muffler. Problem solved. Saved about
$7,000 for size of booth. 

Feel free to e-mail me directly if you want further input.
