P.S. I was in the film industry my share
When you used one, what did you think that gold thing was behind the brass thing-with-the-holes-in-it (looking at it straight-on)?

My last comment on this subject.
I started in the film industry as a sound technician 1973 so been using many mics... KMR 81 came mid 80´ties I think.
In the picture is the insides of the KMR 81 interference tube -no capsule there
Read the microphone theory, how they work actually.

I think thats my problem. The room is only 12x12x8

Sure. But for a single VO, 12 X 12 is almost vast (low ceiling, though). Plenty of room for absorption and trapping.
