basic room accoustics..help design my ht room :)
As a few of you know,
i am in the process of building a new house,
wich will contain a few different audio systems.
One of wich is my HT room in the basement...
Now i need help for the room itself!
i have a 26' by 20' square space for it,
and i can do almost anything "crazy" i want with the walls
please keep in mind the following:
- surround system will consist of nearfield line arrays,
and an IB sub bass array of a few 18-21"
- house is build completly with ICF
( foam isolated concrete walls and ceiling on this room)
and i would like to do the walls with this material
- front screen width is of 100", so it require a minimum of front size for screen + mains + subs
here is a picture of a quick layout of what would be a possibility ...
i'd also like advices on possible reflection treatments ..
26 x 0,618 = 16
16 x 0.618 = 9.9
Do you have room for 9' 10" ceilings
(9.618:1:1.618 is the AES recommended room dimension ratio....
9' ceiling for the front half
8' ceiling for the rear half
what about those AES measurements?
i don't quite understand the ratio you are quoting
i knew that you'd be the first to reply to this thread Dave :p
what do you think of the small angles i gaved to the walls in this quick sketch ?
14.25 x 1.618 = 23
So your avaerage dimensions should be 23x14.5 x 23
That leaves a whole bunch of unised space --- use it for your woofers or...
almost as good
8,5 x 1.732 = 14.75
14.75 x 1.732 = 25.5
(still leaves ~850 ft^3 for woofers)
might give you some ideas, angled walls reduce flutter echo,
may not be needed depending on the acoustic treatment.
