What type of diffuser goes on the back wall? In other words, what frequencies will I build for, low to high?

http://www.mh-audio.nl/DiffusorCalculator.asp

The front wall is 3" rockwool, sides will be with rockwool as well as ceiling. 1/2 of the back wall is 3" rockwool.

Dimensions of room, 8 ' ceiling, 12 feet wide, 20' in depth.

Thanks!

Up there it's more for flutter echo so I would build for higher frequencies.

What's considered higher frequencies?

Also, would it be a better idea to move the absorption panel to the top and put the diffuser at the 2/3rd's spot? If so, would I build diffuser for different frequencies?

Are you leaving the garage door as functional? We stuffed ours with insulation, and screwed it together to stop it from vibrating. We also built a fake wall up in front of it and stuffed it with insulation.

Yes, it will be functional.

What do you consider "higher" frequencies? Is it 500 to 20K?

ha! You don't know who you're dealing with. 800 means a lot to me, but what does "on up" mean? LOL Do you mean I should make a diffuser that handles 800 to 20,000?


I have 20" x 8' of space to work with. How many diffusor panels do you think I need? Should I fill up the space? Should each panel handle a different range or should all the panels be identical?

Thanks for your help. This is getting fairly exciting. haha

I believe that is what Bryan meant.

You won't get a well type diffuser to cover that wide a range without breaking some rules of design. A Poly-cylindrical diffuser can do that wide range though.
