  1. New Member Introductions
    Hey folks. New member here. Looking forward to participating in the forum. Recently bought some new 7.2 HT gear (The new BIC Acoustech's and an Onkyo Receiver) . Haven't even received it all yet. I've started looking into how I'm going to place/mount all this stuff and I've noticed that I may...
  2. REW Forum
    I'm planning on measuring my uncle's tv room with rew coming up here in the next few weeks. I have some knowledge on studio acoustics but I have no idea about tv/hifi stuff and I'm still pretty green on acoustics in general. I would like to know some basic stuff about how to optimize his tv...
  3. Home Audio Subwoofers
    After i read some stuff on the harman kardon site about placing subwoofers i bump on something intresting Almost everybody said subwoofer on the right between the fronts as iseal place But they throw that away and place it in the corner so that all the frequencies are trown to the sweet spot...
  4. Creative Sound Solutions
    Here's a journal of my DIY sub build (in several postings)... Background: Current HT receiver and speakers was a $300 big-box special. Although it sounded decent, the bass was lacking. Knowing I wanted a sub that could deliver subaudible content with confidence, I started looking for deals on...
  5. SVSound
    I have the SB13+ in the corner of my bedroom. Should the driver face the corner or opposite of the corner? I really love this sub, it is the perfect size for my bedroom and is providing incredible tight, deep bass! --Ray
  6. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi! This is my first post here, I'm totally new to audio and acoustics and I'm looking at building broadband corner absorbers for my living room. I live in Australia so obviously don't have access to US materials. I contacted a local business and have been quoted on the following materials...
  7. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello My question is, in my theater room bass sounds good but in the back left corner looking at the screen there is huge build up of bass my sub is in the front right between my center and tower.I build theater rooms etc.. for a living first time this has happened good thing it was my own.
  8. Home Audio Acoustics
    I have 6 2x4 panels of rockboard from ATS. My entire front wall is already covered with the stuff and I'm getting ready to start building panels to surround my screen, a false front wall. The room is roughly 13.5' wide, 7.5' tall and 18.5' deep. The panels on either side of the screen will be...
  9. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have an EV Aristocrat II corner speaker. Somebody gave it to me years ago. In the past I experimented with it some but only recently have learned more about it. Of all the many subs I've worked with over the years the EV Aristocrat is the only one that put out a strong 30Hz tone I could hear...
  10. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi All, The wife has given me a task to do over the summer break and I have agreed to do it if I can add something of my own to the build :) She has asked me to build her a bookshelf in the spare corner we have in the lounge room. My idea is to build a LLT Maelstrom-X corner sub with the...
  11. Home Audio Acoustics
    I already have some treatments behind my front speakers and in one corner but they are just very poorly made 3 inch thick panels (good fiber but very bad diy). I want to add some bass traps in the future but really only have room along the ceiling If you could only put bass traps in corners...
  12. Home Audio Acoustics
    I'm building the traps tomorrow. They will be small-ish traps (8.5 x8.5 x 12, 16 triangles per 2x4 sheet of OC703) and from floor to ceiling. Would someone please post the framing plans/ideas for these types of traps? There will be velvet curtains hanging in front of them (pretty much the...
  13. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I know the plusses and minuses of putting a sub in a room corner. My question is how far can a sub be pulled out into the room (away from the corner) before there is a measureable loss of the additonal room gain that comes from corner location? Any idea of how far out it would have to be to...
  14. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    My current sub placement has 3ft of space from the corner of my room, and is against the front wall. The sub dimensions are 15"x15"x15". After doing several crawl tests with the sub in my main listening position, this produces the best sound. If it is placed in the corner the bass levels are...
  15. Home Audio Acoustics
    Due to the asymmetrical layout of my room, the rear superchunks I recently built ended up being different column heights with the left side being roughly a foot shorter than the right side. Based on what I have read on the forum, it sounded like it was important to fill the corners from floor...
  16. Home Audio Acoustics
    How would the performance of a 24"x48"x4" trap mounted in a suspended ceiling grid, at the corner of the room, compare with a corner mounted trap of the same size mounted just below the ceiling? I have 5/8" sheetrock panels mounted in the grid rather than the usual ceiling tiles (got tired of...
  17. System Setup and Connection
    Hi there! Had a question about my setup. The room is 16 x 16 and the tv is in the corner. My three front speakers are 12 ft. away from the sweet spot and my surrounds are 7 ft. away and a couple of feet above us. I just cant seem to get a seamless front soundstage for some reason.I rechecked my...
  18. Home Audio Acoustics
    I've noticed corner bass traps that fill the corner completely. Is that necessary? Can the corner trap be X-wide by Y-thick with a void behind work the same? for a corner trap how wide should the face of the wedge be to be effective in the mid to low bass region?
  19. Home Audio Acoustics
    I have been playing around with speaker placement in my room and there's one phenomenon I can't seem to get around: I have one speaker on an "open" wall to a larger part of the room, and the other is in a corner. It can be as far as 2' from the back and side walls, but still, one speaker is...
  20. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi! I sat playing with the distance/frequency quarterwave calculator on realtraps.com. Thought I'd see what the effective frequency of my DIY cornertraps are. I'm thinking like this: My traps are 30cm deep from the surface to the wall at the deepest. The result is a 1/4 frequency of 287Hz...
