I have a new project studio room to treat and I'm a bit stuck trying to figure out how to make the best use of my existing OC705.
- Old studio: superchunks in the corners
- New studio corners are 50% as deep as old studio (see pic #1)
- There is a small control-type room behind my studio
- The wall is 4" deep drywall/pine board construction with no insulation (that last part is a guess actually but is based on other parts of the house)
My superchunks for my last studio were created by just taking a 2'x4' panel of OC705 and carving eight triangles/wedges. You can see from pic #1 that I took some of those superchunks and carved them down (made them shallower) so they would fit my wall profile.
I then realized, "Hey, wait a minute - maybe I'm screwing up by carving these superchunks up. Maybe I should just keep the original triangle superchunks in a box and then store that box in the corner of room behind my studio. The low frequency probably is passing through that 4 inches of drywall anyway so I might be okay doing that rather than throwing away so much of the OC705 that I'm carving off."
What do you think: am I better off carving out 50% of my superchunk material and placing it in the room or putting it as-is in the box in the room behind the studio? Or maybe there is another option I'm not aware of? I'd appreciate any and all thoughts/feedback.
