What happened to the bass?

I just had all carpet removed from family room and vinyl removed from kitchen and have tile now in place. The bass sounds boomy at times or not tight. It seems like less bass.
Would acoustic panels and throw rug help?

Re: What happened to the bass?

They might help. Did you re-run the room EQ yet? The changes you made are sufficient to warrant taking new measurements.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Yes I re ran eq. I'll try and measure when I get a chance.

Re: What happened to the bass?

On carpet I found the right spot for the sub. Now, does this mean I need to possibly find another location since it's on tile?

Re: What happened to the bass?

It is more likely you have more noticeable room nodes now without the carpet. (The room may have been more forgiving with sub placement with the carpet.)

I would try re-positioning the sub and also add a throw rug as well as considering some new bass traps.

Re: What happened to the bass?

Do bass traps extend the lower end?

Re: What happened to the bass?

Don't expect that, the are just to clean up the reverb & have to be big to get low. Think super/corner chunks.

GIK suggested 3 bass traps panels 24x48 but at the back wall since my couch is leaning on that wall.

Re: What happened to the bass?

I ordered 3 of the 244 bass traps Full Range since I now have tile floors in the family room and kitchen area. The no carpet changed the reverberation from time to time there is resonance. It will be placed by the wall behind the couch were I sit since the couch is placed by the wall. This was recommended by a GIK associate. I hope it will help.
