Designs for acoustic panels to increase reflection Effects Pedals, Units & Accessories

Designs for acoustic panels to increase reflection

I'm thinking of building some movable acoustic panels to increase the level of reflection at one end of our live room which is designed to be relatively dead. The room acoustics are already well controlled but it would be useful to have the flexibility to change the room sound if necessary.

We already have several 4 feet by 3 feet isolation screens and I'm hoping we could adapt these by attaching a panel of some kind to one side.

Anyone got any ideas on what might work best?

I'm thinking of something not too heavy or bulky so the panels can be moved and stored away when not in use.

How about some diffusion in front of them?

i was in a room once where the guy had 3-4 panels that were about 2'x4' and they were just nice planks attached to a frame (cedar i think). He had little stands he could put them on or hang them on certain parts of the walls and it basically would just add a reflective surface. I don't know how well it worked, but he seemed to like it for when he was tracking, and then he'd move them out of the room when mixing.

what about using wooden panels (e.g plywood)?

Would it be necessary to have something to increase diffusion on the front (e.g. wooden strips)? If so, is there a pattern that works best?

Add diffusors.

Diffusors would make the room sound bigger. Something like a mirror would make it more reflective.
