I have a very small room I’m using to mix in. The dimensions are 8′ Height, 10 ‘ Width, 13’ length. It’s not optimal at all but I’m in my spare room in my apartment and it’s all I have to work with. I understand that controlling the low frequencies in a room of this size can be expensive and very difficult to manage. I have DIY insulation “absorbers” in the first reflection points and in front of my mix position covering the window. My listening position is setup 1/3 of the way across the room and there’s equal distance between both side walls to each speaker. I also have CHEAP foam absorbers from the floor to ceiling in both front corners of the room (I know it’s doing nothing to cure the low end issues and most likely just killing hi frequencies)… I have a massive build up around 200 HZ in my room among other issues.

My budget is under $2,000 but I realize to fully correct the low end in the room it’s going to be more costly than this. While I’d love to seek perfection I just don’t have the money for it. I just want it to be more controlled.

For between $1,500 – $2,000 what would be a good option for my situation?

P, You will have to start with the low end and with your budget, you will have to build units yourself. Take a look at the Sam Small video. His room is a little smaller than yours. https://www.acousticfields.com…..o-project/
