Listening to this room now that its treated acoustically is a totally different experience. Everything seems more controlled and detailed. The highs do seem a bit more dull, and the lows more controlled... But I can tell that now better equipment will really make a difference. Unfortunately I think treating the room is going to cost me a fortune... cause I'm probably buying an amp really soon... then speakers again etc ;;
I figured you would probably end up with the emotiva, but in light of this statement I would mention that amps definitely do not all sound the same.

Finished the panels and 1 of the 2 bass traps.
Heres the pics... Is something wrong with my camera or do I just suck at taking pictures? I want to just be able to click a button on what I want and have a good picture come out... is there a camera that does that well? Basically I don't want to learn how to use 900 functions on a camera... I just want it to take a good picture and do the thinking for me.

Jacked my own thread... heres some pics ;;
My wife and daughter got into a couple ....























It really sounds nice down there right now. I've hit a sweet spot I think in value and bang for my bucks....

Those look nice. And those few panels made a huge difference? Cool.

As far as the camera goes, I'm no expert but the pics remind me of my older camera when it was on a high ISO setting. What camera do you have?

(6) 4' X 2' two inch thick panels with 2 being on the ceiling. (2 four foot tall bass traps that are solid triangles of rockwool. Build by cutting a 4' x 2' rectangle into squares and then into triangles and gluing them together til' its 4 foot tall. Each bass trap is (6) 4' X 2' panels. It deadens the room quite a bit.

Didn't realize you had 6 traps AND 6 panels. That is quite a bit of treatment.

Cool stuff.....

....one of these days...
