Doesn't the manufacturer make recommendations on where to locate the traps?I’m looking to put some bass traps in the room and thought that they’d best be located where bass build-up is greatest. Is this correct?
It's no different from performing any other desired measurement, such as listen-position response: Just place the measurement mic at the location you wish to take a response reading.And, if so, then how does one use REW to measure the pink noise response at a given location?
This is probably the best way to do what the OP is trying to achieve, thing is though, shouldnt you only need to worry about overblown bass that directly affects the listeners in their seating positions. If there is overblown bass in a corner you never listen to material in, and its not having any noticeable adverse affects in the listening zone, then I would say there is no need to treat that area.APS,
What I did was, use REW to generate the pink noise from 30-300Hz. and then use a Radio Shack meter to just measure overall dB's in the corners. I walked around the room manually measuring the corners and writing down the numbers. I then went back and started adding panels to the corners with the highest spl reading first.
This may help explain it a little better:
I think waterfall graphs will tell more. :dunno:The hardest thing is going to be working out which areas of boundary gain are directly affecting the listening area so you can treat those. To do this, you will need to keep the spl mater in the center of your listening zone and watch for changes are you move your bass traps around the room.
