  1. Home Audio Acoustics
    Well, I finally got my front corner bass traps and 1st reflection panel done. The material cost of the panels/corner traps was about $150. I didn't take any room response measurement before the project. Don't know how to use Room EQ Wizard yet and didn't want to haul my desktop into the HT...
  2. Home Audio Acoustics
    I'm new to the forum and have just built my first DIY sub. The sub's great but I have a very uneven response curve. So I think bass traps are the next step (BFD on order). I was intending to use 3 inch thick fiberglass across the corners with airspace behind but I see you have totally filled the...

    I finally got around to finishing my "superchunk" style corner traps:
  4. Home Audio Acoustics
    I have some Rockwool acoustic panels (4") that I want to use as corner traps. So far I have placed them on the floor at 45deg angle with the top open. Do I need to build a floor to ceilign frame and make sure it's air tight top and bottom? Or maybe there's a specific height the panel should...
  5. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello guys, Preface: I built a nice 12" 8cu.ft MLTL sub 4 years ago that served well both for movies and music. Now i built new OB mains with 15" drivers and they go down to 30Hz and I'm amazed by OB bass and now the TL sub sounds boomy. Plus for movies it's very weak (I now realize that) So...
  6. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I'm looking to build a nice corner cabinet for some of my AV stuff. Here's the rundown of what I'm planning so far: -Upper & Lower cabinets with doors on both. (cats + AV equipment bothers me) -Open section in the middle for center channel speaker. -Upper cabinet will house a 40" LCD and have...
  7. Home Audio Acoustics
    I would like to seek some opinions. I am getting ready to build some traps. For 2 corners what I was going to do was use 703 at 6" deep 24' wide. My question is, since the ceiling is 8 feet high should I make the trap 8 feet also or around 7 feet since the back of the trap will be exposed? I...
  8. Home Audio Acoustics
    I'm building some corner bass traps from 703, cut into wedges for a "superchunk" style trap. For WAF purposes it will only be a four foot stack of wedges capped with an oak corner shelf. For WAF purposes it will also be up off the floor above the baseboard (the bottom will be about 6 inches...

    I have a question that would pertain precisely to whether or not I happen to win the acoustic treatments in the GIK contest. :p My room is somewhat odd shaped. I've attached photos. I can think of some places to put the planar treatments (ceiling, front wall) but I don't currently have any...
  10. Home Audio Subwoofers
    In my pre-BFD days, I moved my sub around the room and found the spot that sounded best to me was directly behind my listening position. When I got the BFD, I did not move the sub, I just EQed it where it was and was very impressed by the improvement. Later I started to wonder if moving the sub...

    Figured this was as good a place as any to share some fun pics of my DIY Wall treatments and corner traps. For those interested in DIY corner traps or wall panels...it's easier than you think and it does work. I am all thumbs but got a little help from my brother and his extensive tool...

    Times in electronics right now are pretty amazing. All sorts of new technologies right around the corner. Diplay technologies that look cool: SED should rival the best plasma and lcd flat panels and provide way better black levels and color saturation. Platlight LEDs will eliminate the color...
