First off, in regards to the definition of RFZ, from what I've read so far, it appears that it means something along the lines of "a zone free of FIRST EARLY reflections". Is that a fair description? And if so, is it achievable in a room with these dimensions?
Those of you who have attenuated early reflections. Replace your reflectors/absorbers at these places with diffusors. And see what happens with areas like clarity, intelligibility, localization and tonality. It's not difficult to hear.
Well, I'm not sure yet if it's worth putting in all the time/$$ and effort, but if it IS possible to achieve a RFZ in a room the size I showed, and it requires diffusers to do it, by all means I would redirect my design proclivities from this...(which I've already partially built)
to something like..oh I don't know ..maybe something like this...
But you tell me. If I can achieve it....what would I have to do???
I actually have a lot of questions regarding my room. But I'll start my own thread for that. In the meantime, I'm still trying to understand how the RFZ concept works. Especially the Hass trigger thing, and how it relates to diffusers...vs...say...Jens Hass trigger panels(mirrors?) shown in his pics.
The reason is my room is very similar to the one he shows.
In that regards, I'm not sure what hasl was trying to illustrate with that "RFZ" CR plan, but n an attempt to get my unenlightened head around this stuff I need real clear explanations. In that regard, I've replicated it to better indicate what it is I don't understand. More on that when I have some time.
