What to do with a 7 x 9 x 8 room in a basement?
In before: move out of your room, don't mix there, buy >24 bass traps, etc.
My room is very small (about 7 x 9 x 8 - although I forget what's height, depth, width) and placed in a basement. My Yamaha nearfields and subwoofer are about 3/4 ' away from a wall, slightly off center in the room. This is probably the worst environment from a mixing perspective, so I'm obviously trying to treat the room as best as I can. Unfortunately my budget is around $300.
I'm trying to decide if I should buy the Auralex designer room kit, with 32 square feet of foam wedges and make my own 2' x 4' x 2" bass traps, or just go with making bass traps and forget the auralex. I'm not too sure where the overlap would be if I obtain both and if it would result in a dead room, or if the bass traps would be enough on their own.
Any other suggestions are welcome-
