Some of our members here are "afraid" their room is or will be too dead with "too much" absorption. I don't have the same view but it's out there. So cam, how would you describe your room sound?
Thanks for the pix, room looks great! Special thanks for showing us behind the curtain. Fantastic idea and way to hide "un finished" panels and also a good idea for someone interested in a somewhat temporary set-up.
I feel some members join just to ask one or two questions then go on their way. Too bad for them because there's lots of great ideas that come along, this is one of them.
My theory is I can’t get it too dead. I’d still like to treat the whole ceiling (currently 5 traps but only covering half the area). I don’t play and record in this room. Just for listening I think I want as dead as possible and then I get the actual acoustics of the recording. I can be transported to the Village Vanguard! There is noticeable lack of echo, but just talking or being in the room with no sound is not “uncomfortable” as some claimed it would be. I think it would be a decent recording room also. Thanks for the kind words. My other theory is that I can use 20 year old cheap speakers and they still sound great!
^^^ Right, I don't think it's possible to have too many bass traps. And if you bolster standard (not HF style) MiniTraps with yet more rigid fiberglass behind, you still have the benefit of the semi-reflective front surface of the MiniTraps.
