I live in an old house from 1865 where floor and roof is hardwood fir.The walls is solid wood fir with original “stony wall” now painted in white. Everything original from when the house was built.
My musicroom has these dimensions:
Length: 600cm (236”).
Width: 530cm (209”).
Height: 215cm (85”).
The thickness of the walls is approx 25cm (10”).
In my room, I have 3 windows and and a fireplace. I also have a little room for storage, that I will remove.
I listen more than 30 hours a week and I tend to play at around 75-80 spl.
My speakers are two genelec G4 with one 6,5″ speaker element in eacho speaker. I also have an Gelelec F-Two subwoofer with 8″ speaker.
I have realized watching all the academy videos
that my room and listening position is not ideal as it is now. As you can see in my photos, my listening position is really bad. I have a link with pictures of my room and also a sketch:
In my sketch, I have placed what I believe would be the best position in my new oom for the speakers/bass/workdesk (my speakers is placed on the workdesk).I want to fix the acoustics as good as possible (with the windows and fireplace intact). I would like to do it the DIY way (keep the costs down as much as possible) and I recently purchased the DIY-build plans. My plans is to build sound diffusions, panels for early reflection points and ACDA for bass absorbtions. The freight for the shipping of the foam to sweden ain’t cheap, but I have decided to take that cost. I understand the issue with the windows in the front and back of the listening position (see sketch), but my thought here is to build sound diffusors with wheels, so I can easily move them from and to the windows (I assume it’s best to have diffusors infrond and back the .
I would be happy to get some advice on what I should start to build to improve my sound. The bass tends to get loud in the corners. I have other furnitures in my room now (as seen in the photos), but in my new listening room , the acoustic will always be prio number one.
All the best!
