Question Acoustic Cloud Position -advise

Hi,

Please I need some advise...

I want to put an acoustic cloud on my room/ listening position.

The ceiling goes progressively higher (Part of a old house roof).

So The front wall height is like 9Ft and progressively goes to the back wall to 14.5 FT


so I wonder if the Cloud should be parallel to the Ceiling (angled) or parallel to the Floor


where should I place it? should be from the front edge of the speaker ?

should the cloud cover my head or just cover all the area from the speaker before I seat?

Or should I prioritize the first reflection are corresponding t the side of the room??

How should be the height from the floor to the cloud? because if I flush mount the cloud with a gap of an inch or so the cloud will be very high....

Do you recommend a 2" or 4" cloud?

Thank u.

The bigger the better, cover the whole ceiling if you can with as thick of absorbtion as you can. As a minimum 4'x8'x1' cloud of semi rigid or fluffly fiber hanging between the speakers and mix position at first reflection point as low as you can comfortably hang it is best. Parallel to the floor is fine. The bigger the airgap the better.

so if it 2.5 FT over my head creating like a gap from the cloud to the ceiling of 2.5 Ft its OK?

I have a cloud that is 2" thick can I put on top of the cloud another 703 panels wrapped with a light fabric?

Thanks!

2.5' is good.
4" of 703 is ok, better than 2", not as good as other products, but you do what you gotta do i suppose.
