Your question is much too general. We need to know the available access, ceiling type, span, spacing...Is there an attic at all, etc.

A paragraph of details and even a photo or two of the room/framing would work wonders...

Also clarify if they're ceiling joists or floor joists (for the 1st floor), since you're talking about a basement.
