  2. Excellent floor diffusion idea

    Home Audio Acoustics
    From what I hear the floor space is a very important area of treatment where diffusion works great on but unless it's dedicated space you cannot just have the floors lined with diffusion material so this is my work around. Ottomans! So... I'll build 2x2 2d style diffusors and will build an...

  7. Velodyne excellent support

    General Service and Technical Information
