Re: When is room treatment needed

We can use any of the Guilford fabrics you want. I would not recommend any that are classified as upholstry though. Price per yard varies wildly so I'd have to get an exact price once you pick something.

Re: When is room treatment needed

Great, hopefully that would give me more options now, I have asked for samples from the anchorage range and anything that has purples or greys and is not classified as upholstry.

Re: When is room treatment needed

Hi Bryan,

Well the panels are up and looking great, Thanks

It definately sounds softer with more clarity, they have a very impressive look to them, especially the Art Panels. I just hope I haven't over absorbed as it is pretty much all absorbers and curtains all the way round the room?

Okay I've measured again but I am not sure what I am looking at in terms of improvements, can you have a look for me please?

I have posted with and without amps mcaac eq on, the reason is that the response looks flatter without it on but I always try to leave eq on regardless as I am not sure how many other things it fine tunes that I have no idea about and that maybe REW cannot show?? I have also put waterfall before room treatment.

Kind Regards
Marty

Decay times are certainly better. If you're measuring at just the main seat, it could well be that the EQ is actually making the response a bit worse and it's trying to measure and compensate for a variety of locations. There are still some things to address in the space.

Curtains will absorb a LOT of high frequency only information which is likely a portion of the softness.

Do I leave the eq off in that case?

What is the next step in terms of improvements, do I need to add diffusion and any more absorbtion?

I still appear to have that huge dip inbetween the 100-200hz zone.

Re: When is room treatment needed

The thread is getting pretty long. Any chance of a sketch of the room again with the treatments you've installed, listening position, etc. marked?

Re: When is room treatment needed

I am not sure how to draw diagram but here is a full 360 view, starting at seating position looking at screen.

The last picture I put in for good measure, it is just to left of the main seating position and it is where the stairs from the hallway partially comes across the corner of the room.

There is still a tiny bit of echoe in the room but hardly noticeable. Not sure how much effect that is having on the sound?

There are 4 tritraps in the front corners, 2 monster traps behind the couch, 3 art panels on the left wall, nothing on the ceiling and curtains all along the right hand side of the room.

Kind Regards

Marty

It isn't uploading pictures so I will pm them to you if that is ok

Re: When is room treatment needed

I import the pics from my camera onto my laptop, then on the reply I click attachments, browse, click on the selected pics and the upload. First it came up file is too big, so I went onto the pics, click edit then changed the pixel size to 1000 x 750, resave it then tried again but it still came up file is too big?
