    Hello everybody I have converted one of my bedrooms in a very small home theatre. The room is only 8sqm unfortunately. About 2.7x2.9m. Unfortunately this is what I can get! My previous home theater was large and set-up with proper cinema equipment; this one is too small and it's really not...

    Hey, I recently came into a LOT of OC703, and so I used it to treat my room pretty completely. But the problem is that after comparing my before/after tests, it looks like the frequency response got worse! Though things like the RT60 and Decay look better. Why might this be? Here are the...

    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...

    Hey all - looking for some assistance. A friend from church has asked for help treating their son's small (8'x8' -ish?) drum room. I don't have the exact dimensions yet. It's not used for anything else, and they will not do any recording in it. I think he normally practices with music tracks...

    Hi all! I truly appreciate any advice in this situation! :help: I just purchased a home a couple of months ago and I am stuck with a less than ideal space for my home theater room. The room is only 10' wide and yet 20' long with 8' ceilings. I can't put bass traps in the back two corners...

    Hey All, I'm hoping to get a few tips on treating a room for mixing (mainly dance music). Unfortunately, I am stuck with near-cubic room dimensions of 97" x 100" x 95" (wxdxh) and from what I gather from reading through a few threads, cubic room dimensions are far from favorable when trying to...

    So I'm building a very small home theater room. Square 9x10x12, roughly 1,100sq ft. Carpet floor. 100" projector screen, 5 of Curt's sealed aviatrix's and 12" ported subwoofer with maybe 1000 watts rms. I am new at treating acoustics in a home theater. I will probably try to stick with cheaper...

    I've recently moved to a new place and the smaller of the listening rooms ist's giving me some big troubles in obtaining good sound. There is a sustained boom around 40 Hz with almost all the speakers I've tried in, especially when positioned on the long wall (better solution in terms of look...

    Hello, I'm posting to ask if anything can be done to address SBIR for my transmission line setup pictured here: As you can see the speakers are placed very close to the rear wall, and there isn't space to move from farther off the wall. I know some people say SBIR isn't an issue for the...

    Is there anything that could or should be done to a risor in the theater where the seats will be sitting atop? I recall reading somwhere about treating it one way or another. The Riser will be built out of 2x6 lumber and about double the size of a standard couch possibly larger. Any advice...

    Basically, I'm looking at some diy acoustic treatment in my living room/ht. It is not a lively room with the carpeted floor and open layout, but I figure there's always room for improvement. I realize that I need to increase the space between the projector and ceiling as there is quite a bit...
  16. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi there, I recently bought acoustic treatment from GIK (4 tri-traps and 3 244 panels) and the differences the tri-traps made was night and day in the low-end. However putting two 244 panels behind my main speakers made them sound much, much better. Everything I put on the system, whether it's...

    I have an unusual loft space that I'm trying to make sound right. I feel good about the components I chose and in a controlled listening room they sound really great to my ears. Problem being they don't sound so great in my listening room. I'm running all Martin Logan's for speakers. Please...

    My theater room is in my basement. I have spent some time treating it and have gotten it to the point where it almost sounds how I want it to. However, I do most of my music listening in my office which is in the top floor of my cape cod style house. For those who don't know what a "cape...
