Re: Acoustic Panels (home made)

Fabric samples are on order and I'll be picking the timber and Rockwool WR3 up next week. May be a silly question ericleroi but I take it you used 50mm x 50mm timber for your panels?


I may have to soucre the fabric elsewhere as Ebay only have a few colours on offer and its not from the Lucia Range.


I'm a little confused with your advice on panel placement, when you say get someone to hold a mirror and move it across the wall, would that be the side wall your on about?


Cheers.

Looks like it's all happening - you need to find more detailed explanations of placement which will include the mirror technique, as forum soundbites are way too brief for you to start putting rockwool to timber. Recording oriented websites are probably best- ignore any references to actual recording and don't worry about bass ...I found this  http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb06/articles/studiosos.htm on a quick search, or there are numerous books on acoustics if you have the time and interest.

Some really good advice there from JohnnyV111. Regarding the timber, this doesn't need to be square in cross-section. I believe mine was 15-20mm x 50mm cross-section (or thereabouts). The mirror can be used to identify all reflection points but in this instance I was talking about the side walls.

I have a book called 'Master handbook of acoustics' which I would recommend.

There's a whole world out there waiting to open up!!

Re: Acoustic Panels (home made)

i've been meaning to try something along the lines of yours for a while, you've just removed the need to spend time finding out the correct materials. Yes  i don't think my system has any side walls near enough to treat, so plan on doing the front and rear walls.  i don't think i have too many problems with my room, just interested to see if reducing reverberation improves sound in my room.

You can purchase direct from Camira all you need is:-



"To set your account up we would need your address and contact details including your order then you would be on a proforma accout so we would need to receive payment before we send the fabric out."

The price of Lucia is £11.50 per linea metre and Lucia is 1700 wide.
