    Default Need help on acoustics management

    Hi,
    I have purchased the following:
    M50 - 1 pair
    M30 - 1 pair
    CS1

    I need help on sound proofing my room. I spent all my cash on the speakers and so cannot hire a professional to sound-proof my room. I have to do it myself. Can you suggest things I can do to make the sound experience better?

    My room: 16 x 12 feet
    Floor: Ceramic stone finish (mega reflecting)
    Walls/Ceiling: Concrete

    Thanks

    Area rug should be first on your list. Hemholtz resonators will help tame the bass. DIY Accoustic panels will cut down on the reflected sounds from the walls.

    Dil,

    It sounds like you are confusing two separate issues. To sound proof a room means you are keeping sound from entering other rooms. For example: your listening room is downstairs & you don't want the sound to travel to the bedroom above it or into adjoining rooms. I think you are concerned with making the existing room more pleasing musically. To do this you need bass traps, absorption panels, & diffusion panels. Here's a start for you. ATSacoustics.com, Echobusters.com, GIKacoustics, realtraps.com, eightnerve.com, acousticalsolutions.com. There's plenty of good reading among all those sights. Read up & get started you will be very happy with the outcome of room treatments. I have a GIK monster bass trap (2x4x6"), two echo busters corner traps, three ATS acoustics absorption panels (2x2x4") & one 2x4x4" panel, the difference they made to my room was staggering. It is by far the best money you will spend.
