Question Basement insulation

I live in a house that is approximately 70 years old. I just tore out the existing walls in my basement family room to rewire and install surround sound. The 2x4 studs are turned sideways and there was no insullation. Is there a viable solution for insulating the walls without having the room reframed? Is insulation even necessary since there was none installed?

Adding insulation is a good idea. It saves you money in the long run, and makes things more comfortable. You'll notice an immediate change in temperature after you insulate. It helps in the summer too. It might also be a code requirement in your area. It is here.

You could insulate between the studs with foam, then add a good air/vapour barrier, then drywall. Call your local building supplier and see what they offer.
