Re: Comments on my results please! Mr. Bryan

@bpape - Do you know of any transparent treatments for glass? I don't think I have myself... I've seen translucent foam (if you want to call it that) but nothing transparent.

I've wondered this in the past : Would it be possible to make an absorber (panel/other) that acts like a cavity absorber for the high-end frequencies but instead of making a cavity/cave shaped object make it look like bubble wrap without the bubbles, in other words like a screen of used paper towel roles piled up, but very small in diamer... use the wall they are placed up against as the third-boundary in the "cave" to retain visibility (like through glass?). Ok, sorry, I'm crazy. : D

Nothing that I'm aware of that would actually have an beneficial acoustical properties.

Sorry - not getting the DIY idea and what you're trying to do. Remember that whatever you do (assuming a standard type absorber) must be porous and be able to convert sound waves (motion) into heat thereby absorbing it. Anything that will not do that will be a combination of very very narrow in range and/or simply reflective but without being a true diffuser.

Agreed about the above.

So far as room arangments, striclty because of spacial confinments, having the space behind you, I agree, is much better... I still think it's rough having glass to one side, especially a full wall instead of just a window.

Maybe too simple, but there's the meh option of adding some thicker curtains to that wall, at least that way they would not be installed permanently.
