So, I’m starting new house plans with a dedicated listening room . Dimensions are currently 23L x 17w x 9h. I can slope up the ceiling from 9 to 13 ft high in the rear. Most likely the floor will be concrete, but I could add a wood floor. The builder uses double wall construction for added insulation.
Would a square room with a flat 9 ft ceiling be easier to treat ?
Also I’m reading I should stay away from drywall. What other wall and ceiling approaches are recommended? Also do I need to specify the insulation within the walls
Would an all plywood or wood plank construction be a place to start, then measure the room and work from there?

Hi Gb1, Didn’t see this post. You have good width and length but ceiling height is an issue. Stay away from room dimensions that do not vary by 30 -35%. Square rooms increase all your modal issues up to 400 %.
