Building a proper control room – final tweaks using EQ, primary diffusion & installation of a sub-woofer

Hi there and welcome back! We are slowly nearing the end of this series. Today we will have a look at what EQ correction can do as a final tool. Furthermore, after a little bit of research on the web, I decided to tune the bass region a little more by installing and tuning a … Continue reading Building a proper control room – final tweaks using EQ, primary diffusion & installation of a sub-woofer

Building a proper control room -construction of a cloud absorber

Hi there! We are moving forward with our control room series. Today we install a cloud absorber, i.e., a broadband absorber on the ceiling between speakers and listening sweet spot to tackle early reflections on the ceiling. Of course, we are going to analyze what difference that makes to the measurements. Since the cloud absorber … Continue reading Building a proper control room -construction of a cloud absorber

Building a proper control room – construction of early reflection absorbers

Hi there! In our control room series we now start to battle the early reflections. This is done by the use of early reflection absorbers that need to be able to absorb frequencies as broad as possible. Therefore, one should not use any reflecting materials like foils in front of such elements as these would reflect … Continue reading Building a proper control room – construction of early reflection absorbers

Building a proper control room – recovery of mid and high frequency response by the use of wooden boards

Hi there! It's time for the fifth article in the control room series. This time we're gonna talk about how to recover mid and high frequencies without affecting the bass frequency absorption too much. I have done this by using wooden boards that are mounted onto the bass absorbers with certain slits in between them. … Continue reading Building a proper control room – recovery of mid and high frequency response by the use of wooden boards
