Default almost done...

these are 65" high 40" wide they are going to hold my 2+2 acoustats .
in a day or 2 should be working.
the back panel was made from 1" mdf cut by cnc that's why it's so perfect.total thickness is 2 1/4"

here they are finish but now the problem I have is a lot of reverb,echo,cancelation,It sounds as if I have 2 more speakers behind me the sound bounces everywhere.would it be good to cover the back wall and the sides with that green panel?and the other thing I have a problem is setting the tweeters,cause it's slider inside the box to which I have to unscrew slide on a big resistor (i think).could it be possible to change that if not how can I get them to have the same setting?(multimetre,ohms,voltage etc..)
a friend of mine has acoustats 2+2 and he has a pot outside the box to adjust.could I modify mine to be adjustable from the outside?my room is 14'x36' and the wall on the other end is a brick wall with a wood stove so can't put anything there...as you can see on the other picture before....

any ideas would be apreciated

Maybe build some bas traps for the corner's more carpet on the floor. I bet that shiny floor is concrete and it helps make things echo alot.

my bass is not at it's best (possibly of all the echo I have)and the floor is comercial tiles,plywwod with 2x3's and then ciment floor.also the ceiling is suspended with acoustic isolator(brown itchy stuff)
I have bass because the floor in my bedroom shakes. but just doesn't show downstairs at least not as it feels upstairs

ok the sound could be coming from the tiles being so bright and hardened. It is probably echoing because of them. I don't see much dampening stuff in that room.

that's my point Idon't have much besides one of my wife's quilts paded with pur cotton,about 1/8" thick,but should I start covering the sidewalls or the whole back since my acoustats are dipole,to minimise reflections comin from the back.?
because before with my conventional speaker I didnt have that much echo.very little to say.
