I have the opportunity to build and house my amps, dac and equipment under a set of stairs behind the speakers in an alcove with a door in my listening room
At this stage its a solid cinder block wall but it wont be difficult for me to make this a brick alcove and put in a solid door.
Am I better to leave it as a solid block wall and have the stereo equipment in the main listening room area knowing that anything in the room will have an affect on the sound or hide it in this alcove knowing that I am creating an alcove in the room with a door and lose the rooms rectangular shape knowing that an alcove can cause isssues.
Anyone had this scenario?
Dennis if you had your choice of wall and position to put the entry door to a listening room would you choose side wall or rear wall? If the side was the only option would you have it in front or behind the listing position. Thanks
Thanks Dennis. You have helped me understand a lot about building a room. You talk a lot about the pressures in a room. What would happen if you ran a negative air pressure (slight) in a sealed listening room would it assist with bass management or would it be counter productive meaning just a decrease in sound levels.
