Hi Dennis and everyone. I have been following Dennis for years, and I have watched a lot of his videos . Learned a lot. But sometimes I get confused when he discredits something, yet at the same time seems to promote it?
For example in numerous videos he says that the word soundproofing shouldn’t be used at all because there is no such thing, and I totally agree with him. However, when you google search acoustic fields, it says sound proofing solutions right on he description of the website. And sound proofing is also shown when you hover over the tab once on the website. I understand that the word soundproofing has become an industry standard name/description of acoustics. And that acoustic fields probably uses it to bump the site up in search results. But come on, have to stick to your guns right?
Also, I know that Dennis is really against using insulation for absorbing low frequency energy, and I disagree with him on that subject. Its possible that Diaphragmatic/ACDA absorption is better than insulation, but most people don’t have the money to spend what he is charging for the ACDA ‘s on his website. Many people have attained good results using insulation. Getting to my point, Dennis states that you are only getting 10-15 percent of coverage if you put your “bass traps” in the corners. Yet in numerous videos he says that you shouldn’t put your low frequency drivers in the corners because corners because that’s where the low frequency pressures are highest in the room. If they are highest in the corners, wouldn’t putting low frequency absorption in the corners be ideal and yield more than 10-15 percent? In his video called Home theater acoustics in Melbourne Australia, the ACDA ‘a are clearly placed in the corners.
Not trying to start an argument, just trying to understand, thanks
