I bet the 2x6" are flexing under the weight when you walk over them. That is not very stable for use under a floor.

2x6 frame depends how far it spans or if it seats directly on the concretee. must be laid out at 16" OC. You don't say whaty layout he used. 24" is too far, but some do try it.

5/8" T&G is minimum subfloor thickness. You don't mention T&G at seams. If not using T&G. there must be solid blocking first at all seams.

how nailed? should have ring shank nails and be glued down with construction adhesive to prevent squeaks later.

if framing is right, one solution isto cover with a layer of 1/2" underlayment, glued and ringnailed at 6" OC offsetting seams already there.

Excellence is its own reward!
