Effect of floor board gaps + subfloor space
Hi All - My 1st post here.
I'm finally beginning room treatment having bought a load of 2" and 1" polyester 45kg/cuM for absorber panels. Learning as I go with many hours reading SOS, EW, GK, and many others who share their knowledge and experience online.
I'm wondering whether/how to account for the subfloor dimension in the height
of this room because it's planked with 5 1/4in x 3/4in hardwood which has approx 3/8in gaps. The subfloor depth is between 8 and 11ins. The floor is old and has slight bounce and air can freely flow through the gaps. I am guessing that by varying the area of floor covered (mats) I might get some bass control.
Room dimensions L 12' 10" W 12' 1" H 9' (not allowing for subfloor or built-in shelves, cupboards and chimney)
Also walls are solid brick. I'm forced to setup my monitors facing across the room rather than down the length - not ideal but doors and windows don't allow a symmetrical setup.
Here's a waterfall graph with no treatment and a the room in question (my first go at drawing a room using Sketchup)
