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

Building a proper control room – mounting fabric and difference measurements

Hi again! Welcome back to the fourth article in this series. Today it's time to see what difference it makes if two layers of cotton fabric are mounted above the construction that we already measured last time. Since that task is quiet simple, today's article will be relatively short. The primary reason we want to … Continue reading Building a proper control room – mounting fabric and difference measurements
