I'm reading up on LEDE control room design and am confused by these stated requirements:
- The front wall should be "dead"
- The speakers should be flush-mounted
That's fine, but flush-mounting speaks of concrete and other heavy (read, "reflective") framing. And, clearly, they don't mean to suggest hanging absorptive panels on a wall with flush-mounted speakers - 'twould introduce reflection points and defeat the purpose.
So, how does one go about building a "dead" front wall? Pink insulation between the studs? Extra-thin drywall? Can I put wood paneling on my dead wall?
Any enlightenment is greatly appreciated.
