I'm new here in the shack and i hope someone can help me optimizing my room, i have lots of problems with standing waves and positioning.
First of all you may need some information about my equipment, it's nothing special but for me as student it's a complete new world in...
I'm working on several different areas in order to put together a decent HT room with limited budget.
I have an issue with the room where I will be installing the HT equipment.
First, room is small, is around 21 ft lenght, 9 ft width and 10 ft height. The room is built with concrete...
My home cinema room is in a loft, has 7x7m, hard wooden floor, and has very little furniture.
As such, its a very lively room, and as it can be seen in the waterfall chart, the ringing times are very long :

While testing with REW as well some times while listening movie, I want to put some thing in ears to reduce volume level by some db.
Can anybody share good one for this purpose. Not sure what it is called.

I'm considering an articulating wall mount to bring the TV closer to the seating position and reduce the viewing distance in my theater (bonus room). It's a 50" plasma with a viewing distance of about 12-13' from the wall, and I won't be able to justify buying a new, bigger TV anytime soon...

my HT is now finished (see pic).
Using my behringer I managed to greatly equalize and improve the bass response.
I now have a very decent curve with good decay times from 30Hz and up...
