Need help with studio monitor placement
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello!

I been struggling to find good placement for my studio monitor setup and decided to ask help here.

My room has a big window, 3 doors and a wardrobe. I have acoustic curtains to block the window, bass traps in 2 corners and some acoustic panels in walls and doors.

What would be the best spot for the speakers in your opinion ?

WC to GS

Filling windows in with roxul safe n sound, covering with sound sheet from home depot (black looking sheet rock deal) then screw in blocks for diffusion onto 1/2 over it is great. Then the left over Roxul is great to make more wall frame pannels.

Measure it, you'll know it! :)

It's tricky since, you have door or windows everywhere....which they coincide to your first reflection points.

Maybe a scale/dimensions would help? kfhkh

Yeah those have made things more complicated. The two doors on right wall have big acoustic panels.

My room dimensions are 3.8m x 4,5m and height 2,6m. Window is about 170 x 150cm and doors 70 x 200 cm.

Along the left wall if you can deal with losing the view.
