BAM Studio / Chicago is one of the nation’s top premier post-production and voice over recording studios specializing in television, radio and digital productions.

Increasing industry exposure and a growing reputation for unsurpassed quality and state-of-the-art production value fueled BAM’s expansion resulting in added recording and control facilities.

O’Neill Engineered Systems, Inc. was brought in to design and provide unique doors, windows, fabric panels, duct silencers, underlayment and other isolation materials for the new Studio B.


Acoustically isolate a voice-over recording studio from the myriad of invasive building noises, HVAC and mechanical noise as well as structure-borne vibration located within a busy urban office tower.

Sound condition the recording booth interior room acoustics to eliminate reverberation and contaminating background noise to produce a clean base audio track for voice-over and post-production added effects.


A double-stud wall recording booth with floating floor was built using a two-piece decoupled acoustic window system and an STC-53 door to isolate the room from the rest of the building.

The booth’s interior walls and ceiling were lined with 2” Thick, fabric wrapped panels and featured a corner bass trap and HVAC duct silencer.

The resulting booth design and execution virtually eliminated background frequencies and sound contamination resulting in perfect post production voice-over recordings for some of the highest quality productions including Chicago PD and Chicago Fire for NBC Universal as well as other productions for FOX, DreamWorks, Disney and others.

We are proud to partner with BAM Studios. O’Neill has been working with the BAM team for over 7 years to design, provide and install studio doors, windows and decorative acoustic wall panels in their state of the art post-production recording facility.
