Finally got around to starting to install all the acoustic treatment stuff I have.  I decided to make some broadband absorbers like I'd seen in some of the DIY projects in Sound in Sound.

I'll post some more pictures once it's all done and I've tidied up.

The attached PDF is a plan of what I have to work in....half a garage...so it's pretty compromised..well it's either that or send two of the kids to the orphanage  ;D

I decided to turn the studio around so I'm going long ways down the garage ..I was reluctant to do it before as it blocks up the exit to the garden but what the heck.  There's also a boiler on the wall which is a PITA but it still sounded better than going across the short way.

So the basic plan is to put Auralex tiles up for diffusion, the LENRDs from the same kit in the corners to help a little with the bass end, build some 600x1200mm enclosures to fill with Rockwool and cover them with cotton dustsheeting and Auralex tiles which should hopefully work well as broadband absorbers and fix some more tiles to the ceiling and mirror points.

Any tips welcome !

I made the absorbers from 12mm Shiplap , quite handy because I read I should to increase the depth of the panel to give an air gap behind the Rockwool.  I also invested in a staple gun  >:D

The Rockwool slabs are 50mm thick so I doubled them up, stapled the cotton sheeting over the front of the frame and then cut & glued the Auralex panels to the front.

I also made a couple of slimmer ones without tiles on to put across the corners...just used an old duvet cover stapled over a wooden frame with 100mm of rockwool slab inside, so you can now see one each of the finished absorbers.

Next Job is fixing them up & putting the rest of the tiles up too, I also have to sort out & re-wire everything as I'm putting it against a different wall.

Looks great.  8) There might be some advantages to having a small room. Contains all the sound. Probably great for mixing and mastering.  Good job CD.
