I'm Charlie and have recently moved my gear into a much bigger room than my old bedroom, and the main difference I'm hearing it's hard to get a clear picture of the low end - which producing low end heavy dance music is pretty important.
I'm using Yamaha HS80's - hpoefully can clear up the sub end with treatment - or considering replacing with smaller (either 5/6" with sub) not sure yet though!
I'm currently fairly close to the wall at the moment but have read up on Ethan's 38% article and will be moving to that soon unless anyone can suggest otherwise given the room layout.
Also I've been looking into making two corner bass traps out of Rockwool - as I've found a supplier in the UK which to me seems pretty cheap.
I'm wondering whether I should go for the basic 4" thick panels - or whether it's worth making the stacked triangle super chunk traps? If so how deep would you recommend them and what density material?
Here are the two types on either I'm not sure which is worth getting (one being more denser / rigid.) Rockwool RW3 1200x600x40mm - 120 per pack (86.4m2) | Condell Ltd Rockwool RW5 1200x600x40mm - 6 per pack (4.32m2) | Condell Ltd Rockwool RWA45 Sound Insulation 600x1200x30mm (12 per pack) (8.64m2) (45kg/m3) | Condell Ltd
(all vary in thickness)
Attached are dimensions and pictures of the room. I can't go overboard with panels as it's still a shared house - but feel a moderate amount could drastically improve what I'm hearing hopefully!
Any help is much appreciated, many thanks!
