Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Really hard to say without knowing exactly what the plastic is. Suspect it's starting to roll off in the 4-500Hz range.

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

So above 500Hz would be reflected?

Just purely guessing but probably not all that dense of a plastic so just guessing about the same as an FRK facing.

Thanks Bryan... I was just curious as the sound change is dramatic... Not sure if i like it or not 100% but some parts I def do! As soon as my next shipment of GOM arrives I will finish my panels and bass traps and run Audyssey again.

Should I also put the rubber membrane on my rear corner bass traps like we did for the rear wall?

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

That's an option certainly if you want to restrict mid/high absorption though the rubber will start to reflect lower.

So I should just use the GOM for the corner traps? The rubber I am using is a very thin pond liner like rubber on the rear wall 9" deep traps.

Really up to you. In the front, I prefer them full range. In the back you can use the membrane if you want.

The front is only R80, and the rear is R80 covered in thin rubber... Just need to make the rear corner traps out of R60. If we use GOM will it be sucking the life out of the surrounds?

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I would do the membrane on the rear corners.
