Nice use of the space mate - really like all the DIY treatments!

Making of DIY treatments:

They're pretty simple, with a frame sized a little bit smaller than the eco-isolation batts.. The fabric used to cover it, is the cheapest bed-sheet available in IKEA.. I wrapped it around, and nailed it to the frame..

They are excellent.. I noticed a huge diffence, already in the room, where i stored them..

Nice room Jens, and great DIY treatments. The only suggestion I have is to maybe move the centre channel forward a bit so it won't be reflecting directly off the top of the surface it is on.

Oh, and that was a smart idea to monitor the sub's LED.

I actually haven't thought of the reflecting surface in front of the center channel.. Thank you!

Yea, it's a great idea.. Actually mailed it to SVS about making the LED to an optical out port.. They liked the idea

Re: A small home theater - Dorm-style

After buying new speaker cables, i recalibrated my system, and i lost my >20hz bass.. My response from 16-17 hz(look at the roomresponse at first page), is moved up to 20hz.. What can i do, to get it back? :/

Looks great!
Is it wise to have your kit directly behind the radiator??? Unless you don't have it on?

Bowers and Wilkins, Onkyo, Playstation, Xbox

Re: A small home theater - Dorm-style

I haven't acutally thought of that! I just checked the temperature behind my receiver.. My apartment is small, and therefore easy to heat up - so my radiator is not hot enough to cause problems!

By the way guys, i discovered the problem about my sub 20 Hz frequency response! The only door i have in my room, is to my bathroom - whenever that is just a tiny bit open, it cancels my 16,17,18,19 hz! I closed the door, and rechecked, and my sub 20Hz is now back on track!
I can post pictures of the difference, if you are curious about what such a tiny detail can cause!
