I have a dedicated listening room in a basement. It is 7 feet to the bottom of the joists and closer to 8′ to the underside of the floor above. I have this in half of my listening space which is 22 x 14. Does this present any particular issues? I was thinking that these “channels” act like resonant tubes and could adversely affect the sound. Thanks for the advice.

They will impact middle and high frequencies. The stud spaces can also be used to absorb low-frequency energy between the floor and ceiling. With that low ceiling height, you will have large blooms around 60 – 90 Hz. Watch our CAW process. This process is available in DIY form. https://www.acousticfields.com…..rber-wall/

sonically, it sounds like the low midrange is too strong like around 150hz.
