hi everyone, I’d like to have some advices about how to treat a recoarding room for drum.
This room is a square wooden house and its dimensions are 15×15 ft. The height measure 6,5 ft on its lowest point and 9 ft on the highest.

Does four bass trap placed on the corners are enought?
How should i treat the ceiling?
Should I absorbe or spread first reflections?

thanks everyone for your time

B, With this room size, volume, usage, you will need low-frequency management on all wall surfaces. Your low ceiling height produces low-frequency issues throughout the room, not just the corners. Middle and high frequency management will need to be placed on all walls and ceiling.

Thanks for your quick answer.

Could i ask you also where shoul I place low-frequency absorbers on the walls?
And can a diaphragmatic absorber placed on the ceiling be useful?

B, You will need a combination of broadband and low-frequency absorption throughout the room. You will have to place your low-frequency absorption on the floor. Diaphragmatic absorption is too heavy to install on the ceiling. What is your budget for this project?

I don’t have a maximum budget, because if there are some fundamental treatment to make the room sound acceptable I’m ready to do it.
Should the low-frequency absorption placed on the floor be placed along the entire perimeter of the room?

Hi there. I also had similar questions, on how to do the best acoustics in my room. The room size was similar to yours. I was trying to find different variations for my room. Most annoying was where should I place all the musical instruments. I found many ideas, though I did found I good solution to do a perfect acoustics in my room. I think this will help – acoustic barrier
