Re: 100 hz dip

Boomy is there regardless of the floor type until treated. Yes - carpet is high frequency only absorbing. That said, in a home theater situation, I would use carpet. You want a more damped room in a multi-channel environment. Now for 2 channel, Wood can be nice. I would not use tile, concrete, or vinyl.

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

Re: 100 hz dip

Okay, I'm using 2 main speakers and i want to get the most reliable/real sound as its meant to mix music. What is important for me is that it gives me the most accurate sound (not the best warm etc sounding).

The answer i'm looking for is "why" do you suggest wood ?. "Nice sounding" is not an priority if it ads an acoustic sound to the room which is not in the sound of itself . I need it to be as transparent as possible. Why do you think vinyl is a bad choice as aposed to wood/laminate ? wouldn't wood give extra reflections as well ?

Wood doesn't tend to be as hard/harsh sounding. If you want to use a laminate, go for it. Just giving my opinion.

Re: 100 hz dip

I'm just trying to find out what would be best in my situation. I understand wood will sound better then laminate , but it is also allot more expensive.
So instead of going for the harsh sound of laminate i thought vinyl would be a good in between choice as its allot thinner and less reflective (though i'm not that sure about the reflections or if it sounds harsh) or do you think vinyl is just as bad sounding as laminate or carpet for a 2 channel mixing-room situation ?
I do have wood under the vinyl i'm using right now by the way, so no concrete if that might change anything.

For as far as i understand your experience is that vinyl/laminate/tile all produce a to harsh sound ? and that carpet wouldn't be an option for an 2 channel situation ?
leaving actually only wood as an option ? Have you done tests in the past if i may ask ? or is this only by ear (which i would find equally valid if you knew the floor was for a fact the source of the harshness) Harshness is not good in any way , so i wouldn't call that an opinion :P.

Re: 100 hz dip

Over wood, vinyl would be slightly better than laminate but not a ton. It's just experience of hearing a ton of rooms over the years with pretty much any flooring type you can think of.

Re: 100 hz dip

I'm back after a looooong time, it took some while to find the time and do everything the right way but i think i got it right this time... i hope.
I think it sounds allot better already and i did bought a wooden floor, it realy gives allot reflections but when tamed down with the soundpanels it sounds warm and nice

Could you check my measurements to see if its improved to an acceptable standard ? I'm still not sure how to read the waterfalls. As you can see in the first picture it looks like the average is 400 (zoomed out) while the second picture looks like the average is around 200 ms.

The frequency response is quite oke i think, it has some spikes though around the 2, 4 and 600.

For the basstraps in the front corners i got also traps behind the carpet wall which you can't see on the photo's.

What are your thoughts about it ? im realy curious
