for a mixing/control room, I know that Equal distance of the mix spot in terms of walls is very important for having great stereo image. But in case when it’s impossible to move the mix spot, what are the treatment solutions or ideas please? when you have the left speaker pretty close to the wall and the right speaker a bit far from the opposite wall of a small room?
The isolation of the rooms is very solid though / here are some sketches of the mixing/control room:
Any general help?
or is it fundamental to have it like that?
Hi Louzin, Center image and focus is governed by the side wall reflections and their time signatures. First, both speakers must be equal distance from each side wall. Secondly, the absorption treatment used to reduce the reflection amplitude must have the proper rate and level of absorption . Finally, each side wall surface must be made of the same material and density.
Thank you so much Dennis Foley!
I’ll rotate the desk to face the left wall and to be able to have symmetrical distance between side walls and speakers. But I think this will create a new problem which is treating the reflections at the window to my right Since you stated stated that “each side wall surface must be made of the same material and density”. Shall I try thick layers of black curtains for instance that will cover the glass window?
