You should start a new thread for your room and post your pictures there...you will probably get some good feedback from regulars like bpape with suggestions on treatments.
Thanks Chas..I just did...hope to get some feedback!

My big concern is my sub placement...I am VERY limited where I could put them..I am planning on getting two more HSU's for the rear corners.

I was told to move my subs where my fronts are now but I tried that a few weeks ago...I watched Rambo and at the scene where the captures are being let off of a few trucks to run through a field full of mines...I noticed you could hear the people but they sounded way far to the left of the screen, like they weren't in the scene but you could hear them! I am not sure this was happening due to my not re-running MCACC on my Pioneer but that I don't think was the culprit...just that the fronts were to far apart...but I am a newbie. If MCACC would be able to correct that I would move my subs in more where the fronts are now...

Update...wife doesn't want the speaker blocking the window so it's of to acoustic treatment alley!

Re: Corner Traps finally finished!

Okay, while the wife was asleep..(lol)...I moved the fronts as suggested and re-ran MCACC...here's what happend:

It still seems like the speakers are too far from the viewing screen...the scene I used as reference still sounded like the people talking and screaming weren't in the movie...while the scene was then playing I moved the speakers closer to the TV and found a sweet spot where it sounded "normal" to me..right where they were before!

Also, the subs, being in closer to the TV didn't sound better or worse! Maybe since how small th room is having two just fills in the room nicely!

But then again, I am fresh to all this HT stuffola!

Re: Corner Traps finally finished!

That's a real nice design. Simple and effective. I might have to emulate this in my HT.

I really have to do something with the screen wall, there is a large painted out window in the middle behind the screen, but the corners should be able to accommodate bass traps like yours easily.

Good work!

Michael.

Re: Corner Traps finally finished!

I just realized my original picture was a bit dated as I bought a new TV about a year and a half ago, so I updated the photo from the big old caveman 36" tube to the newer 50" plasma.

Re: Corner Traps finally finished!

Chas,

Those are nice. I built some that look a lot like yours. But my real question is how much does that potted plant dance around on that big sub when you have the volume cranked up? Also, did you build the traps behind your mains? Did you notice much of a difference with the panels behind your mains?

Ha...don't make fun of my wife's plant! Yes the sub will rattle the pictures on the wall but the sub is solid as a rock and does not vibrate at all so her plant is safe.

The main difference I notice with the panels is a greater sense of clarity and separation...which I attribute to less reflections off the front wall.
