Hi from Melbourne Aus

Hi Shackers
I have been an avid reader of your forums for some time and decided it was time to join in.
I've recently acquired REW V5.0 and all required testing gismos and about to begin playing with room acoustics.
Even without testing I have already made some DIY bass traps for the room front corners and am having trouble in that the wife appreciation levels have been measured quite low already.
I have a question, we have some canvas art work (paintings) which already hang in the room and was wondering if I insert 50mm thick insulation behind them would this assist in reducing reflections, reverb etc. I understand that the painted canvas might limit higher frequency absorption and because they are effectively laying hard against the wall not the optimum for low frequencies.. but before I go to the trouble of cutting insulation to size thought it was worth getting your opinions.
Thanks

Welcome to HTS - enjoy your time in the forums!

If I may, I would suggestion posting your question in our Room Acoustics forum - it will more than likely get a quicker response there. Cheers!

Re: Hi from Melbourne Aus

Welcome to the forums officially! ALMFamily is correct, you'd get better luck posting in the Room Acoustic's forum with your question. There are plenty of people over in that section that would be able to help you there!

Hope you get the answer you are looking for! Enjoy your time with us!
