    On an unrelated note, where do I get a disc firing nerf gun? I might need to illustrate some acoustical properties to my unsuspecting wife and dog

    Smaller rooms really will not benefit much from diffusion, though this does give a basic concept of how the problems arise. I wish it went into room modes and corner traps for lower frequencies...

    This is more of a 'live recording' setup. But still informative either way.

    I'm going to be setting up my new monitors in a square bedroom. If it's really bad, I can easily move everything to the rectangular living/dining room.

    In preparation, I tripped across this nice article on placing monitors - it touches on some in depth material.

    And, uh, oh - hire a decorator to come in here quick, 'cause... DAMN.

    Just one note: Also small rooms benefit from diffusion if done correctly. One can use a 2D-Diffusor to quicker scatter the waves. This is a second class solution though. Absorbtion should be used instead and adding artficial diffusion with reflections. In a german forum a user discribed this method. He has a signal processor and a lot of loud speakers. Some directly point of litte diffusers.

    Why are you dredging up random posts and posting things that the original poster probably never wanted to know?
