Re: Started treatments

Bryan, currently I have 3 panels on the front wall. 1 on either side where the right and left channel speakers are located and one in the middle, directly under the tv, behind the center. The "bass trap" is off in the corner.

When I first started, I had the 1 panel by the left main, then the 2 stacked together in between the left main and the center, then the center panel and the right panel. I could hear the difference... I was a bit suprised actually. When I took the two out of that spot it sounded open matching the right side. Next case, I think I'll put one inbetween the right channel and tv and the tv and the left channel, that will give me 5 on the front wall, plus the front trap AND rear trap... not a bad start.

One last thing, how high should I be mounting the panels on the wall? Center them? Currently I just have them on the floor leaning against the wall.

Re: Started treatments

Usually, you'd start them about 2' off the floor. Whether they should go that high or not depends on whether they're providing any boundary effect control in the bottom end and where your woofers are in relation. Overall, being up higher is probably better in your situation to minimize as many reflections as possible from the surrounds coming off the front wall and mixing with the front soundstage.

Re: Started treatments

Here is a rough sketch of what I have and would like to have. The green area is where the bass trap is.


nevermind, won't let me upload. I'll tinker with it.
