The Basics of Room Acoustics: Bass Traps, Diffusion, Panels

This video explores the basics of room acoustics.  Most of us are in smaller, residential listening spaces which are on average 12ft X 15ft X 8ft in size. We usually have problems with the lower end or bass frequencies in these types of rooms due to bass frequencies being longer and more powerful than treble […]

Video: How Diffusion Works

Diffusors are used to treat sound imperfections in rooms such as echoes and are an excellent complement to sound absorption because they do not remove sound energy. In this video we’ll examine How Diffusion Works. Diffusion is often a misunderstood concept, so first let’s take a look at the general definition and one more audio […]

Testing for Corner Bass Trap Placement

This video illustrates a simple method to determine corner bass trap placement using a flicker noise (also called pink noise) audio file.

Early or First Reflection Points

Early reflections or first reflections are terms to describe direct sound which arrives at the listener’s ears before the rest of the reflected sound does. Sound reflects not just off the walls to the left and right, but off the floor, the ceiling and everything in-between. Direct sound combines with reflected sound which causes interference […]

Positioning the Listening Spot

When positioning the listening spot, people often ask if they should face the long wall or the short wall.  In this video we examine each setup and show why facing the short wall is the better option. Why do we recommend facing the short wall? The answer can get rather complex; but in short, when […]
