It seems to be common knowledge these days that proper room treatment should be priority #1 for any audio professional. This calculator provided by SAE has drop down menus for specifying building materials, windows, floor covering, and will translate all measurements to the system of which you are most familiar. This is the easiest and most useful calculator we have found on the web.
In the next few weeks we will be discussing acoustical treatment options available for DIY and those for purchase in different price ranges.
For room treatment certain basic rules apply across the board and the industry standards have not changed much over the years. The main subjects for these discussions will be room ambience, desired intention of your room sound, absorbers, bass traps, diffusers, measuring reflections, room nodes, optimal mix position, and monitor placement. What should you use to measure your room? How much is this going to cost? What are the minimum treatment options for those on a budget? Where can these materials or finished panels be found?
Then we will put a spotlight on some of the creative engineering gurus of the world developing fascinating solutions in the areas of diffusion and fractal diffusion. These will be explained in simple terms and will be mentioned with links to the most comprehensive information available for further study.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned…
