  1. Treating and tuning a large living room, it has some issues

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I've got a somewhat large living room I'm trying to improve the acoustics in. The room is almost 21 feet wide, and 15 feet long. The floor is carpet and the drywall ceiling is 8 feet above the listening position, sloping up to 9'-6" in the front, above the mains. I've played with a few sub...

    G'day All Here in a cold time in Adleaide South Australia. My name is Frank and I'm putting together a dedicated music room, no plans for home theatre as yet but who knows down the road.

  3. Subwoofer placement?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I'm treating a 16' (L) x 11' (W) x 8' (H) ["popcorn" ceiling/sheet rock walls/carpeted floor] to become a mixing room. I'm having a room analysis done, and will be using absorption (rigid glass fiber panels), Mo Pads and Sub Dude (for 3-way monitor isolation) and bass trapping. Given all things...

  5. The distribution of absorptive panels

  6. A decent control room in a small unsymmetrical living room?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hey guys, I read a lot of your post and great ideas about optimizing the sound. I tried a bit, but now I need your help. I want to mix my projects (jazz/world-pop/classical) in my living-room/studio. And this room is totally not symmetric and small and there is already some furniture that has...
  7. Absorption above flexible ceiling tiles

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I am treating a small mixing room and need to cover the ceiling to conceal air ducts and plenums primarily for aesthetic reasons, but also to prevent the soft-side ducts from acting like high-Q traps - the 1/4 wave narrow-band suck-outs I measured were exact 4x multiples of the duct diameters of...
  8. Subwoofers + Statistics = Fun?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I think the closest fit for this is here in the acoustics forum, but if I'm wrong about that please correct me. Before I even start, I’ll say that almost all of the information in here is going to seem like common sense to us “enthusiasts”. However, using a little experimental rigor to test...
