New control room acoustics help.

Hey guys! I was wondering if you guys could throw your 2 cents in. This is going to be my control room for my new studio. As you can see, it's not a big room. I've already installed some Auralex (I have a bunch more)

Now, how am I going to get bass trapping going on in here?? I have some OC703 on the way. Just wondering what may be the best way to use it. Also, for a room this size, am I going over board with the Auralex, or should I add more?

A few more notes...

Ceiling is 8ft.
I use a Sub.
Can't put anything in the back corners (doors)
Mix position facing 13ft wall

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Duane

Nice job, but you will definitely need more bass trapping. I'd use your 703 to make 4" thick panels, straddling as many corners as you can including wall/ceiling corners. Use the auralex foam to control reflections (ie, make a RFZ, deaden the vocal booth).

I would agree, more bass trapping is going to be needed in that room.

I just built 6 of these. Problem is that it's pretty small room. How many of these do you figure I need?



4"OC703

Thanks guys

Six is a start, 20 will be great.

So you're saying as many as I can fit? I highly doubt I'll be fitting 20 in that space. 6 will be tight! Makes it tough with the placement of doors and windows.

The wall/ceiling corners are your friend. Also consider having some moveable panels.

Start with those 6 and see how it goes. The room will not be perfect with 6 but it should sound a hell of a lot better. If building more I would build in sets of 4, straddling more corners and see how it goes
