Best acoustic panels for small room?

Post by Hyastal » Thu Dec 12, 2019 3:07 pm

Who has experience to share in hanging acoustical wall panels to treat a small (12'x12') practice room? Not looking for absolute sound-proofing as much as deadening echo off bare walls and tile floor. Do you have a particular brand, or type, to recommend, or one to stay away from?

DIY mebrane absorbers.

If the room really is 12 feet x 12 feet then you will have a double standing wave at 85Hz: so a low A will sound really boomy. Depending on what the room is made with, you cannot really fix that with any kind of absorber. You can reduce it somewhat, with a lot of maths and a lot of space taken up in the room.

This site shows you how to make your own. Or you can buy them from his company:
