traps

  1. Home Audio Acoustics
    Where would be the best location (starting point) for installing ceiling traps to help with first reflections? As a general rule where to start? about even with the side wall panels? Half way between me and the speakers? More to front/rear of the area between me and the speakers???

    The room is irregular shaped with dimensions about 13'x15' with a 3'x5' nook in the rear right corner. The speakers are situated on the longer wall. I also have a drop ceiling that is 3" from the actual ceiling which makes the height of the room about 7.5'. The ceiling slopes from 94" to 90"...

Not that I am unhappy in any way it's just as a tweaker I am always looking to squeeze every last ounce of improvement from my system just for the fun of it :) I would love to hear your ideas...

    I tried my hand at some corner traps, white fluffy actually. I am curious, how tight do you stuff them. I tried to leave them in a natural state of R19. Should they be compressed a bit? Here are a couple of photos. The first, adding the insulation and shelving to to keep the insulation from...

    I have a decent amount of Ruxol remaining from my basement renovation and wanted to use it for bass traps. My room does have noticeable nulls so I figure adding traps can't hurt? The only space I have available is in the rear corners next to the back row seating. I have a space that is 9"wide x...

    Hi folks, I wanna do some roomtreatment in my mixingroom. The room size is 4.15 x 3.85 x 2.65 meters. I measured it with REW, it has some problems in low frequencies. By now I have 2 basstraps in the front corners and ordered 4 absorbers for mid and high frequencies, which I wanna put on the...

    I finally found the time to try building some corner traps to see what I can do to tame the issues with my room. So far I have only build a pair for one corner but I thought I would share them and post the REW file if anyone one would like to take a look. The traps are made with fluffy...

    Sorry for double thread, I'm that worried :sweat: (I should have posted these pics right from the start, meh) Here's a pic of the control room. I treated early reflections with 4" thick acoustic foam. The booth is actually just divided by some big thick fabric, so not much of reflections from...

    Hi there, I've recently treated my room with broad band bass traps and there has been a significant difference in the before and after measurements. However, I'm not sure what to do to make further improvements. I have a gradual null at 55hz that slopes down 10 db to 90Hz and back up 10-15db at...

    I have a dedicated listening room in my home measuring approximately 7m L x 5m W x 2.8m H. The room has a carpeted concrete floor, painted brick and plaster walls and a gypsum ceiling. When I initially set up my hi-fi in the room the acoustic response was terrible - the room was loud, boomy...

    I made my own DIY bass traps with roxul rockboard 60 and burlap fabric. I was curious about the safety of rockboard? I didn't cut it or anything but do particles come through the burlap and fly around my living room?

    I plan to use front floor to ceiling super chunk bass traps wraped in cloth Fidelio. This is not very breathable, but I already bought it. Appreciate any input on if I can use not very brethable cloth for bass traps. I guess I can't use for absorbers.
