My small room sketch,please suggestions...

Hello everybody, I'm new here ,so first, love the forum! I got all informations about adjusting a new room here. So thanks a lot, I’ve spent a few months making a room usable for mixing no recording, the room is small 5 mtrs length ,3 mtrs wide and ceiling is sloping (I made a plan to show you )…
I will make 2 basstraps, each measuring 120x60 cm 30 cm deep …5 acoustic panel 120x60cm 15 cm deep , mineral wool Rockwall 60kg/m3…and maybe one big skyline diffuser but im not so sure if its allready ok with my room, I need suggestions.Please let me know if a should make a change sketch???

First I would rotate the mix spot to face the left wall. Here is why.
Positioning the Listening Spot - GIK Acoustics

If you have already made the skyline then use it but what you want to focus on is A LOT of bass trapping. 30cm deep trapping is going to work well but you may want to make them half that thick and cover more corner area. Thickness is important but amount of total corner coverage can yield better results with less thickness of the panels.

Oh.. Well I would face the wall with the lower side and trap the hell out of all corners. In fact I would put THICK absorption on the whole back wall if you face that way.

I would make the panels as thick as possible and not worry about the skyline.

Sorry but I don't really have time to do a layout for you. But basically you want to treat all corners with bass trapping, early reflection points and like I said THICK absorption all over the back wall.

you could go with a number of different size absorbers to accommodate the room modes. here's one idea on how to lay it out along with some decorative panels for keeping some life in the room.

Glenn is the guru of sketch up!! Keep in mind that most of the treatment he is laying out is behind the fabric walls. It can totally be done that way.

thing is, if you're building a large coverage of deep absorption, then framing it and covering with cloth and hard bits (to me) is a lot more practical than trying to stuff a bunch of individual units into the space...

would a design similar to this work for a room that is 13ft x 23ft with 14ft ceilings?

depends on the layout. my own room is 18x23x14 peak (11 average) but i go long ways in the room rather than wide. if you have the sloping ceiling then going wide would be good. however i might use some additional tactics like hard surfaces to shape it more since you have the space.

the RW3 is 96kg/m3 (6lb/ft3) which is too dense for the depth of trap - consider getting 48kg/m3 (or thereabouts) 100m for the face and then 15-24kg/m3 for the back fill (200mm).
also consider making an absorber on the door and one on the opposite wall (2 per side walls). i'd also still build a 100mm thick cloud on the ceiling over the desk.

Actually I think you will find Rockwool RW3 is 60kg/m3 (RW5 is 100kg/m3)

RWA45 is a bit lighter at 45kg/m3 (no surprises with that product code )

thanks! i had 96 on the brain RW45 would be better

on the position - you're going to have to place with the positioning to get it right. i would tend to put the monitors closer to the front wall first and move your seating position accordingly.

i suggest measuring the room acoustics, plan your treatments, and map out the actual pressure levels once treated to see what you have to deal with. with the sloping ceiling you'll typically have a shift of the modal response may be helpful in finding a proper seating position.
