  2. Acoustic absorbtion with a hard surface?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I have a large reflective space, and prefer a modernist aesthetic. I don't really like the idea of fabric covered panels. Is it possible to achieve worthwhile absorption with a layer of thin wood veneer or similar materials over a 1 or 2in thick rock wool type insulation panel? I realize this...

  6. IB Subwoofer Absorbtion

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I have a few odd questions about IB sub interaction with rooms: 1. Does an IB sub do much in the way of bass absorbtion? (Could that be one of the reasons why people think that they sound so good?) 2. Would the absorbtion be different when the amp is on or off? And finally a hair brained...
