TJ mentioned it in one of his later articles for HFN and I've read other people come to the same conclusion.

so perhaps this is REALLY the way to go

I mean not to try to mask (acoustically) the room but rather to mask the speakers instead.
in other words not to take the room out of the "sound equation" but the speakers instead

best,
graaf

And in this position the second matress hanging above you will get much closer to your head, dramatically increasing the channel separation, while being close to the floor liberates you from many room mode problems.

Do some recordings with this and it will be heaven on earth:

great idea!
and absolutely worth trying

it would be not so much different from Carlsson OA-52 positioned in the corner

and perhaps even better

best,

a bit different

but I agree that Klipschorn and other corner horns (Lowther et a.) are viable alternative methods

I've already said above:
Quote:
high directivity speaker in (or close to) a room corner and significant toe-in is also a reasonable method of dealing with early relfections, of "speaker-room interface", like in case of classic corner horns
best,
graar

Very nice MisterTwister!
I am working on similar idea but using Ted Jordans line array concept - corner placed - waveguide baffle - 2 JX6 speakers per array.

Perhaps with this sound card to tune things with using the PC. http://www.cluboc.net/reviews/sound/...ude/index.asp:


el'O - 485 Euro's - but Thanks for thinking of me
