Re: GIK Rec Rm. recomendation.



Revisiting an old thread

Painted the front wall to match brown 244's .

Will be painting side walls to match side 244's .

The room sounds pretty good but ...

Would it be a big improvement if I doubled the size of the "acoustic cloud " ? ( It has 3 242's with added 2" of 703 . 1 3/4" gap to ceiling. )

The 244's on front wall are double stacked , does that do anything to help lower bass trapping ? (can't stack 2 high due to ceiling height)

should I add two more 244's on side walls between the other two , spreading them out a little.

So far the acoustic cloud has made the most improvement !

Sorry - been absolutely swamped.

**** As long as it is catching all reflections from the LCR to all seats, it's big enough

The 244's on front wall are double stacked , does that do anything to help lower bass trapping ? (can't stack 2 high due to ceiling height)
**** Going double thick will extend lower frequency response. BTW, we can make you custom sized ones to fit.

should I add two more 244's on side walls between the other two , spreading them out a little.
**** First, get them up off the floor a couple of feet and into the reflection zone. At this point they're not doing anything to help with early reflections.

So far the acoustic cloud has made the most improvement !

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