one wall of studio is 80% glass.... help

Postby dwok » Thu Sep 01, 2011 2:08 pm

Hi everyone, I'm acoustically treating my room at the moment but have a slight problem: my lefthand wall is solid and my right hand wall is made up of 2 floor to ceiling windows and double doors, this accounts for about 80% of the total surface area. I have built 4 of the soundonsound certifies base absorbers: auralex foam mounted on to high density insulation panel sitting in a wooden frame with a 6cm cavity behind it to catch bass frequencies. I have 2 of these mounted on my front wall mirror points and I was going to mount the other 2 on the side wall mirror points. My problem is that the mirror point on the right hand side is a glass door and the panel is too heavy to attach to the door. I was thinking of moving the panel that would go on the righthand side to the back of the room and then building a lightweight panel to hang on the righthand side door: auralex foam and insulation panel in a shallow (no cavity behind it), very lightweight frame. Does my identical acoustic treatment need to be symmetrically placed in my room for even acoustics or is my suggested placement ok? Cheers

Not so much in the back of the room but from about where you sit forward it should be symmetrical.

Thanks Glen, that's perfect! I'll reinforce the door hinge then and mount one of the sound absorbers on it.
