Re: Absorbers and Trap attachment

Brian,
I was able to attach a few images of my Control Room for reference. I am still very interested in attaching any absorbers or traps on lexan 'plates' that I can suspend from the underside of the shelf that rings the room at 7 feet above the floor. This will allow me to detach them and set aside for access to shelves or views out my windows. I don't want to create a dungeon environment.
My main question is if this compromises the effectiveness of the absorber/ diffusors since they are NOT rigidly attached to the walls.
I like the looks of the Alpha wood series but need to be mindful of cost.

Re: Absorbers and Trap attachment

The books will absorb some, the CD's may break up higher frequencies a bit but do nothing in the mids and lows which is where the big problems occur in every room - especially smaller ones since the difference in a good vs bad seat position can be a matter of a couple of inches.

I would agree with the cloud - at least 4" thick and spaced down from the ceiling.

There doesn't appear to really be any other place to put much of anything.

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

Re: Absorbers and Trap attachment

It is a cozy but small room adjacent to my mixing room. However I do hope to install bass traps in the 4 corners, some kind of cloud above and at least absorber/ diffusors on the left and right walls that will be most effective at my listening point.
Still have not gotten an answer on whether suspending elements on panels will be ineffective.

Best regards
David

Re: Absorbers and Trap attachment

If you can find space for some corner absorbers with left to right symmetry in mind, that would be a nice addition.
