First attempt to acoustic treatment.


After postponing this for way too long I finally decided to treat my room. All DIY.
I recently moved to a new flat, where I have a dedicated room for my studio. Unfortunately it is almost cubical, the good thing is it its totally unsymmetric. The alternative was to swap with my bed room which is a bit more rectangular but has more windows. One of them has an enclosed 20cm airspace which can be used to put plants into. Imo this is a horrible resonator, so I was not looking further into using this room as a studio. Or am I wrong?

Long story short after reading a bunch of tutorials and posts I came up with the following plan. Because the door is in the corner, I can only treat 3 of them with bass traps. I thought to use 62,5cm cubical bass traps filled with either Rockwool Sonorock or hemp fibre. The latter gives me a better bass attenuation at this size. Sonorock has a GFR of 6 kPa*s/m² while the hemp has 3 kPa*s/m². Further Id like to use broadband absorbers made of Sonorock (62,5*200*28cm) to treat the sidewalls and the back wall. As I am sitting rather close to the back wall swapping diffusors for absorbers seems more useful to me. Maybe I could also add a cloud absorber (again Sonorock). The window behind the speakers could be treated with a thick curtain, maybe Molton.
Down below are charts of my current room acoustic. Currently the room is naked, besides a bookshelf and my music gear. There are also roomplans showing the absorbers (blue boxes).
All help is welcome. What are your thoughts on this?
