    Hello, I recently joined and started posting. Presently I am working to add acoustic treatment to my studio control room. It is a small room 15' wide x 20' long with a ceiling that slopes from 9 feet in front of the listening area to 10.5 at the rear. There is a lot of glass: bay window at...

    I plan to build a few bass traps as described in attached LIMP MASS BASS ABSORBER.pdf So I can tune this absorber's central frequency I would like to know if there is a way in which to measure my prototype absorber using a UMIK-1 and REW V5. i.e. I don't want to build 3 or more such absobers...

    I just found this video that compares a few of the different types and I found it interesting as to which I actually liked. I have run absorber before and diffusers but never actually compared them like they do on the video... I found that after listening I actually prefered the Diffusers much...

    Hello there! I am currently trying to adjust the acoustics in my home-studio (mainly for mixing) and need your help to sort out some issues! It's a 2,30m x 3,70m room (yes, it's metric, please continue reading) with carpet on the floor (about 2-3cm). Cieling is about 2,40m high. It also has a...
  5. REW Forum
    I asked this in the wrong forum, so I'll ask here... Is there a relatively reliable way of comparing two broadband absorbers using REW? I'm only interested in how they differ in my room, perhaps at varying locations. EDIT: To add, the room is a tracking, mixing/monitoring, and listening...

    Will this cheap foam act as good absorbers to reduce the over liveliness of my room (plain brick walls and tiled floor)? Dimension of the whole piece is 90x90x7.5cm, density of 30kg/m3. The purpose is just to control slap echo and some simple absorption for HT purpose. I don't expect this to...

    My ceiling is under 8' and I want to get some absorbers on the ceiling to cover my first reflection points. Is 1" an acceptable thickness? Do I really need to go to 2"? What would the best material be for 1" absorbers? Thanks

    Hello everyone! Lets talk about perforated metals and their usage for sound absorption. There are two options - as a transparent cover for another absorbing material (rockwool, fiberglass etc) and as a tuned resonant absorber. Now to a real-world issue I'm having - specular ceiling...

    Hello fellow Shackers :wave: I have designed an acoustic panel-treatment-absorber-reflector. I will post a link to the finished product a.s.a.p. Thank you. mixxpitt

    Hi everybody! I have a couple of question and if somedbody can help with advice i will be very thankfull. I have purchase 6 VPR(Modex plate) absorbers for low frequency treatment of my small small project studio room( HxWxL (2,45m;2,30m;4,40m) ). I wanted to find places with highest modal...

    Hi All, I seriously doubt that panel absorbers really work. There are formula with which you may calculate the resonant frequency of a panel absorber, but they basically assume that the membrane moves like a piston - which it obviously doesn't because it is glued/nailed along the edges - so...

    Hi Has anyone had any success with panel bass absorbers? So far we have not been able to match what we build with what the various calculators predict. Thanks Chris

    Hi, I'm setting up my basement as a sound studio. I've studied acoustics so I know about absorbing, diffusing and isolating...I just don't know how much to use and how to target specific frequencies. I'm using cotton insulation as the core of my absorbers,(great stuff, not itchy and very high...

    I have two questions: 1. Besides from 4 Tri-Traps and 2 244s I have some DIY absorbers made with rockwool (2,95 and 3.9 inches thick) and I feel that I've to be really careful using them in quantity, they can easily overdampen the highs and leave the music lifeless. How can I make them into...

    Is it really necessary to go from floor to ceiling. I've had a friend tell me to continue above ear level is overkill. Thanks.

    I was shown and found some info on creating your own absorbers and bass traps using OC 703 rigid fiber. They recommend using 2 layers to get 4". I was wondering if there'd be any loss of effectiveness or gain in effectiveness if I use 13" R-38. Would that extend the absorption to lower...
