    I totally agree. It was very well done. It's the first time I've seen room treatments that weren't out of place & fugly as hell.

    Congrats & enjoy!

    Very nice write-up about your experience(s). Many people believe in room treatments but shy away from them because of the aesthetics. Your photographs are proof that acoustic treatments can look good and be functional also.

    Those photo's are terrific, but some of the people in the photos I would never have in my house. You are lucky to be alive!:D Especially that guy behind the camera with an eagle on his shirt. Was there a jailbreak near to your home?:D

    Nice review. It's amazing how much of a difference acoustic panels can make. I just wish mine looked as good as yours. I must say, you have a very nice setup also. Are the speakers the Revel 52? Just curious because I can see by the pics the piano black on the back of the speakers. I also have Revel's. Very nice speakers.

    Nice Revel Studios! I heard a pair of those on a friend's system and really loved them. They were a bit out of my price range so I decided on the F52 which have been, so far, an excellent speaker.

    Carl, I was out on good behavior. :D

    And Brock, I had forgotten about that night. IIRC, an unexpected trip to pick up a polkie wilting at the airport, a wrong turn and hunger fueled that driving style. :D

    Blake, highest marks on the write up and your system. And thanks for the kind words. The room is beautiful! I like how you mounted the window panels. Well done!

    I don’t think I mentioned to you why I am unable to mount the GIK 244 panels on the wall behind my speakers. Jasper (our cat) will leap off the amp stand, bound off that rear of speaker panel and end up on the stacked GIK Tri Traps in the corners (8’ high). There is plenty of room for him up there with the 14’ ceiling. Trick is getting him down, so I take the behind speaker panels down when not listening. My behind the speaker panels are usually vertical, except with large gatherings.

    What material are those panels made of?

    They look like suede.

    Hi Blake good to see your coming along.

    I figure it took both Brock and Dave to handle one of those bad ass panels with the two of them kabitzing at each other over which way to walk......my condolences.

    The panels are covered in microsuede which seemed like the best choice for a living area. As far as ATS panels are concerned, there are cheaper choices for coverings that may not look quite as polished, but would certainly cut the mustard for a room that wasn't in the center of the house.

    Just felt like bumping this; I love the way you've designed the panels to integrate withe the modern design of the room's furniture.

    Thanks JL88. I can't believe I missed this one!
    Nice job Blake!!!

If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks
