I just constructed 5 bass traps (2' by 4') using OC 703. I also just bought 4 foam corner bass traps (http://www.thefoamfactory.com/acoust...bassbroad2.jpg
dimensions here: The Foam Factory, Acoustic Foam, Sound proofing Foam, Bass Absorbers, Corner Blocks,
My room is a basic rectangle, something like L:10' by W:5.5' by H:9'
Question 1: Should i place the foam traps horizontally (like in this picture http://media.soundonsound.com/sos/fe...itioning.l.jpg
) or vertically?
Question 2: I am going to angle 1 bass trap from the ceiling on my front wall, and then put the other 4 in the 4 vertical corners of the room. Since they are 2' by 4', is it best that i just set them on the floor in the corners, or should they be raised off the ground?
Question 3: With only 5 bass traps, should i consider just loading only the front 2 vertical corners of the room, and then hanging the rest on the ceiling towards the front?
And if I'm totally off base about something please point me in the right direction. Also, I am limited to only these 5 2' by 4' bass traps and the 4 foam corner ones so I have to make due with it as best i can. The rest of the room will be checkered with 2" pyramid foam (The Foam Factory, Acoustic Foam, Sound proofing Foam, Pyramid Foam
Also, by front of the room, I mean the 6' wall I will be spewing vocals toward. And also, this treatment is purely for improving vocal recording quality.
Any guidance is appreciated, thank you
