Too Much GAS
Feb 23rd, 2017 03:57 PM   Edit   Profile  

bass absorption in their control rooms?

I'm in the design phase of my studio build out. Limp membrane bass absorption seems to be heralded as about the most efficient way to "tune" the low frequency problems in your listening space. Far more efficient at low frequencies than rockwool or corning 703. It just takes up a lot of real estate.

I'm considering building some of these massive enclosures right into the walls of my studio to keep from using up as much of my limited floor space as possible. I just need to figure out where to put them in the room. I want to do this as correctly as I can afford. I've spent a small fortune on gear my whole life so now I think I'm going to funnel my GAS into getting my listening space tuned up and sounding good.

I still haven't moved all of the stuff out of the shed I'm going to build it in yet. Started working on that last weekend and plan to continue this one. I built another shed for all of the "stuff" so I can clear mine out. I'm still installing shelves and hanging lawn and garden tools and basically organizing it so I can find what I'm looking for when I need it.

Then there's "The Wife" factor. Not sure what I'm going to do about that one yet. She wants me to get everything done and moved into the new shed but, then comes out after I've been working on it all day and starts wanting me to move things. NOPE!!! Shoulda been out here 9 hours ago. That made for a fun weekend. Can't wait till the next one.

Well, my studio is a walk in closet, so my clothes function as acoustic treatment. :-)

I did some session work at a studio in Michigan years back. It was an outbuilding but nicely designed. In the corners the guy had some square blocks maybe 24" square. He said they were for bass absorption as I recall. He made them by lining a cardboard box with wax paper, then filling it with Great Stuff. After it dried he did some sculpting and painted it.

Did it work? I dunno....

Going to get some corner traps from acoustimac.com for mine at some point. They seem to fit better and corners are the biggest offenders IIRC
