I am planning my next project for the audio room. The project will consist of designing, constructing and implementing acoustical treatment for the ceiling. The horizontal dimensions are treated using a combination of tube traps and diffusion panels. The third dimension has carpet on the floor with a bare ceiling. The intent of this project is to remove this third untreated dimension from the acoustic signature of the room.
From my research, I have created rough plans to create a 4’ x 8’ panel which incorporates absorption as well as reflectors to trap direct sound from the monitors, yet preserve room energy. Combining both features into the acoustical treatment panel should not over damp the room. I am also aiming to appreciably reduce the floor/ceiling resonant mode within the room.
My design is untested at this time as I have not found any reference to this particular design in a single panel. I was wondering if anyone has experimented with ceiling acoustical treatment in their room. I would be interested hearing what you did and the results of the project.
I am planning on ordering the on-line materials this week as well it will take several weeks for the items to arrive. This would leave me time to revise my design should any additional information be discovered.
Thanks for your time.
