Room treatment has started.

First phase of room treatments. Full 8 foot corner traps , and ceiling cloud panels are on their way soon. These are 8" thick GIK monster traps with the optional scatter plates. The 20x24 room was very "live" and had some big low frequency spikes in a few areas areas. The traps smoothed them out dramatically and mid range benefited greatly with imaging and clarity really improving as a result of a less "muddy" and sometimes "boomy" bass. The room also has a tile floor so it was in need of absorption even though I added a few area rugs most thins like blankets and rugs etc are really not doing much if anything. The panels also have the optional scatter plates for diffusion so they absorb as much bass as possible without disturbing or over-absorbing the high end, which leaves life inside the room. I chose the very thick traps with the diffusion plates as they absorb up to 50% more low frequency (below 60Hz) and retains 75% more high end (from 400Hz and above).

The room still needs some very thick shag carpeting as the small area rugs covering only about a third of the tile floor I have down are very thin.
