i have a really loud amp which i want to record with but i live in an apartment building.
i thought i could make a box out of a soundproof material and put the amp inside so as to trap the sound inside this contraption.
does anyone have any idea how to do this, any sites that explain how to do it, or even what this technique is called
thanks in advance

That'll give you a shitty sound won't it? The soundwaves will bounce against the walls of the box and act like noice.

^this. bigtime

You'll just hear bass, and noise
maybe you can just turn the volume down?

Yeah Ibanez and Gibson design all their models on their iPods.

Isocabs are used a lot in recording. You just want to make sure that you use something that will absorb the sound more then reflect the sound.

Use lots of padding and it will sound fine. I've made my own isolation box which I can drop my 1x12 cab in. Works great, can crank my 333 without the neighbours complaining.
