  1. Help with plan for acoustic treatments

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I finished my basic family room/home theater set up. Quite happy with it, but I'd like to look into ways to improve on it without spending a fortune. Really, I'm just looking at ways to make it sound even better. I definitely would not consider myself an audiophile, but I like above average...
  2. New to Treatments - Advice for Bass Traps?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    It has been advised that I look at treating my room before going PEQ, and I'll agree an EQ may not take care of everything wrong with my low-end. This also would be my first crack at doing a waterfall graph and hopefully I've got it right: Here is the curve with no smoothing from 15 - 300 Hz...
  3. Asymmetric treatments- a good idea?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Vid of Anthony Grimani on small room tuning Start at 1:02:00 I am trying to soak up as much info as I build my theater/listening space. I have never heard of this idea before and it seems very interesting. A member of the group notices the treatment layout is intentionally set up as...
  4. DIY room treatments version 2.0

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Over the years I have looked into and added some basic room treatments to my HT. Previous absorber panels and a QRD diffuser were some of the items I added early on. However, I was well aware that my first efforts did not meet the requirements to be truly effective. I recently decided to...

  8. Need advice on room treatments....

    Home Audio Acoustics
    After finally getting the sub that i have been longing for MUCH earlier than I ever thought, its time to move on to treating my room. Luckily, my wife has no problem with panels once I showed her that you can have panels made as art. However, I spent the better part of an hour reading the master...
  9. ETC with/without extra treatments - worth it?

    REW Forum
    Hello, My room currently has a absorbing ceiling, but there are many reflective walls. I have bought some cheap 2" foam to test if treatments on walls will be a good choice. Would you say, that the improvement is worth the "trouble"? I would cover the walls with compressed mineral wool...

  12. REW Measurements - with and without sound treatments - Not making sense

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi everyone - I have been working to learn REW so I can optimize the sound treatments on my theater build in progress. I'm trying to interpret these graphs, however I'm confused that there doesn't seem to be much difference between treated and untreated. The treated measurements had OC703 laid...

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I recently have finished a few days of room testing and measurements with REW and I'm about to start working on a plan to treat the room. I spent a couple days moving speakers around for the optimal placement given my restraints and I think I have come up with the best spot for my subwoofer...
  14. My new treatments

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I did some measurements with REW and the results don’t seem that big. I like how it sounds and always want to make improvements but I think at this point I’m as good as this room will ever get. I expanded the ms to 599 to show as much of the decay but over all I think the bass looks good but I...
  15. Phase 2 on my treatments

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I'm gearing up to complete my treatments. I'm planning to make bass traps just like you suggested Bryan. Behind the couch I would have 3 traps the same width as the window treatments, about 23 inches wide x 4 ft tall x 6 in thick, using more OC 703. I am going to get 12 pieces of the 703...

  17. YLZ theater acoustic treatments

    Home Audio Acoustics
    OK so I think I'm ready to start doing some room treatments on our theater. The theater is not going to be the end-all design as there are some inherent problems with the layout, but as it is a shared living space we are going to have to make the best of it. I'll post some actual photos here...
  18. Shoji Treatments

    Home Audio Acoustics
    So, I had this thought about having a set of Shoji sliding door/dividers which could act as a diffuser and/or absorber when closed on the back border-wall of my living room which will be used as a home theater in less formal times (most of the time). I'm no expert, but it seems that diffusion...

    I'm almost done with my dedicated movie room and desperately need help with acoustic treatments. I don't know terribly much about the subject but I have been reading up for the last month or so. All I'm really looking to do is pick the low hanging fruit - nothing fancy. I want to handle the...
