My basement has short ceilings – either 6’6″ or 7’1″ if rafters are covered or uncovered. Width 9’6″ Length 12″. Not bad dimensions except for the ceiling height.
My front room has cove ceilings, 8″ height. 17″ length. The issue: the front of the room is 14″ wide and the back is 10″ wide. Sort of on L shape because of a hallway/closet. The listening zone would be on the 14″ side.
Curious on which issue is harder to deal with acoustically: short ceilings or a non-rectangle room?
I’d prefer to use the basement, just because it’ll be difficult to hang a bunch of acoustic panels/bass traps in the front room of the house. Just a bit easier and less obtrusive to put stuff in the basement. It’s also possible the cove ceilings would be beneficial acoustically?
Any advice is appreciated!
Unfortunately, your room size and volume are limited to acoustic guitar and vocals. Here is a chart showing treatable room sizes and volumes: https://acousticfields.com/wp-…..-Large.jpg
