Room Acoustics

I have a question concerning acoustic panels. I’m currently trying to determine what I need and how to set it up in my room. GIk advised that I put as many bass traps in the room as possible, strategically positioned in the room and, in the first reflection points. Secondary reflection points could either be covered by a combo of diffusion/absorption or diffusers. One question I have is, is it necessary to have so many acoustic panels both traps and diffusers, if you don’t play music very loud? Do acoustics matter most when the volume is turned up and the walls rattle? Appreciate some advice. Thanks.


The short answer is that this is not a consideration. If you are questioning GIKs strategy, ask them for clarification or find someone else. I would not ask for free acoustic advice; its an area where you get what you pay for. Good luck. 

I work with Mike Major from GIK he was great sent him photos of my room told him the problems I had with gave him my budget The room sounds amazing now and it was under budget

I post photos in systems

its funny sidog 1460 that we both started discussions with the same title

Bass traps or more subwoofers, you make the call.

I've tried both and additional subs made a bigger difference.
