    So after some time of my original conquest, I tried to optimize my living room to be get better audio (5,5m x 4m x 2,5m, speakers firing in long direction, seating slightly forward from the middle of the room, quite some furniture in the room). My original measurements are here...

    I want to test system to install bass traps. I have TASCAM 144 mkII and ECM 8000 calibrated microphone. How do I get waterfall graph for my 5.1 system? I want to start test testing something even if it is not accurate. What are connections from TASCAM to recceiver? I am not sure if line out of...

    I am putting in some DIY bass traps. I have 4x24x48 rigid fiber glass. From what I have seen, it won’t be hard to make the trap. I can make a frame, upholster it, and stick it in the corner. But here’s where I have a couple questions. First, what if I put another 16” piece behind the 24”? Is...

    Okay, a little exaggerated title, but the question is real. I have a room with dips at the 2nd and 3rd axial modes created by a sub on the long wall. The dips at 54Hz and 80Hz were completely unaffected by placing 2x2 RealTrap minis in the two floor tri-corners along that wall (see graph NOT...

    Any advice for me?? They did nothing! 3.5" thick Ultra Touch, 8' tall in the corner. Traps are 30" across. My room: Now, my results with and without bass traps. Also, I'm using a WM-61A mic. It should be good for these measurements. At my recliner, with and without traps: At my PC...

    I just completed the bulk of my planned bass traps. I wanted to minimize the framing but needed to suspend many of them in my basement. I used Johns Manville 814 (3pcf (48kg/m3)) semi-rigid fiberglass 2" thick from my local SPI location. All the panels so far are 4" thick overall. Fabric is...

    Hello all, I'm in the middle of installing room treatments, both 2" thick acoustic panels from audimute and some DIY corner bass traps. I just finished installing the acoustic panels... audimute helped me calculate how much of my room to treat based on the room size (12X17X8 high). I chose to...

    Hi, This is my first post here and I'm hoping to get some advice regarding bass traps or acoustic treatments for my apartment. It's a rented space, and it's not very big, so I want them to be as unobtrusive as possible. My setup is 2-channel only and I've already purchased Jim Smith's book "Get...

    OK, I've decided to move this to a new thread. All panels are made of 4" thick, 50 kg/m3 fiberglass. They are spaced approximately 10 cm from the boundaries. Some of them are FRK faced. (Blue ones on the picture.) Approximate room dimensions are 4m X 3m X 2.7m Please download the 360 degree...

    I am after some advice on room treatment and where to place bass traps (and how many). Should I focus more on the front of the room or equal front/rear treatment? The room dimensions are 16'1"L x 14'1"W x 7'10"H. There is a double sliding glass door at the back of the room covered by heavy...

    I know that there are a lot of recommendations on treating an entire room, such as first reflection points, front wall, rear wall, etc -- but I've found less information on bass traps. I've read at least one place "You can never have too many bass tarps"... I'm building 1 7' tall "superchunk"...

    Hi All, I've finished making acoustic panels out of R13 insulation and Burlap. They came out very clean looking and did an excellent job of eliminating my echo. Now its time for some bass traps. I've been reading a lot of forums, including this one, and about 10 others trying to find the...

    I was under the assumption that putting bass traps in room corners, including ceiling and floor corners, would cut down on bass resonances. The more the merrier. For decorating, I temporarily removed all the bass traps on the left side of my room and there was no significant difference in...

    I have a 10'x20' room (Really comes out closer to 16x20 because of the screen wall).. Ceiling is a drop ceiling w/2x4 panels. Need to measure height. Behind the screen wall - I covered the drywall floor to ceiling with R13 fiberglass. At the time I didn't know what I was doing - and just wanted...

    Going further into my subwoofer setup. I got rid of my SB Live USB, and went to a Behringer UCA 202. With Vista, no more crackling. I am including graphs for someone to help me with any progress I have made, or not made. I am including waterfalls that I generated, but I am a novice and I...

    At a "high end" stereo store the other day and their listening room has triangles in the front corners. I was told these make the bass smoother. Honestly sounds like snake oil to me. Well maybe if you have 150k worth of equipment and a recording studio, but for the average Joe and his HT...
