In the process of finishing my room with GIK help.

Here for the gear

In the process of finishing my room with GIK help.

I had built a bunch of traps and panels and had them up. Room was sounding pretty good but then, I decided I wanted new preamps. Well, having talked myself out of preamps because new monitors were actually the better next step, I realized that I probably should make sure my room was right before purchasing the monitors.

So, I began reading even more about acoustics and got a measurement mic and took some measurements with REW. It then dawned on me, why not send those files to someone who actually knows what they are looking at?

Enter GIK Acoustics and one of their designers, John Dykstra. I sent measurement data from 3 different listening positions. He also helped me see how to best arrange and finish out the room. I have some range limiting soffits headed my way. He also told me how to best use the the ones I had built and without his advice I would have just kept building full range traps and potentially sucked the life out of my room.

Sometimes it’s better to ask for help. Great experience so far. Here is a rough floorplan and some pics of my traps in their new spots New listening position will be facing the recessed window.
