Your videos had help me a lot during my construction for my dual usage room… I have almost watched 85% of all the videos you have posted. I could hire an acoustician to sort it out, but the thing is I wanted myself to be involved in the planning. I was just playing it by ear, adding additional treatment gradually.. My friends will always advice “less is more” but at the back of my mind not for low frequency management. If my project will turn it nice It is on me, if it is going bad then I learn something… well after building 10 diffusers for my back wall… OMG the listening experience is very different….. it has taken me into another level.. the only problem is it is difficutl to convince people that it is the treatment and not the gears…….Again Thank You Dennis. Keep on posting videos I still watch them especially when there is a new video uploaded.

Reading your message and the success you had is very encouraging. So thanks to you Ninja too!
I’m somehow in a similar situation. Except I’m tuning a room for voice recording, rather than for playback. I’m starting from zero experience in acoustics and I watched a good share of Denis’ videos (but probably not 85% … yet). Everything is not entirely clear, but they definitely help in understanding the core concepts and to look with a critical eye any off the shelf solutions. And I totally agree: with a mix of perfectionism and DIY enthusiasm, I prefer being involved in the project. Whatever will be the outcome, it would be more rewarding that way.
I must admit I’ a little bit curious to learn more about your work though. I saw you registered on the forum in 2018. Does that mean it took 2 years to complete your project?
On a practical matter, which kind of wood did you use?
Maybe you would also accept sharing a couple of pictures of your design?
THANK YOU SLYVAIN
I am not into voice recording but I think there are loads of videos from Dennis and other acousticians there at YouTube University… My Music/Listening Room took about a year to finished because I got only a single carpenter who does my treatment and all my other house stuff… The house with the listening room in it, finished about a year ago. so my carpenter had to do cabinets and tables etc before the acoustic treatment in my room started… It was all worth it… i will look for the pics of my room from start to finish
