    Talking Beyond room treatments

    So this may not be for everyone. Instead of bass traps and the like, I decided to reinforce the walls of my audio room and the rest of the house by removing the cheap masonite siding and replacing it with stucco.

    Ok, that was not actually the impetus for doing stucco, and I didn't expect any audio improvements, just the asthetics, but what a difference! Everything is tighter, more focused, and significantly less reverb with the clap test. Much less noise infiltration and exfiltration. (which makes the neighbors happy)

    Several people have commented on it without me saying a thing.

    No moral here, just something that happend, and loving the results. :D

    You must have insulation in your walls. I have a stucco exterior, sheet rock interior, and no insulation. Low freq sound moves through this with no problem at all. I can hear boom boom cars two streets away, and I am sure my neighbors hear my sub when it is on.

    I do have insulation in my walls. I can tell you, with no doubt, it is much quieter with the stucco inside and out
