Hello Dennis and everyone,

I have a room with the following Ratio: 1Hx1.68Wx2.31L. Ceiling is 8′.

Standard 2×4 framing and 1/2″ dry wall. Floor is carpeted.

Speakers are Kii Audio Three studio monitors.

This is a room that’s available in my house to use as a dedicated listening room .

Checking with you all to see if its worthwhile to persue.

Thanks for your help.

Tim

Room ratios are only a guide to start with. What you must decide is are you going to treat the low frequency issues within the room or not. Treatment for low-frequency issues takes 12″ of space on each wall surface area. This additional 12″ will change the ratio thus possibly producing improper ratios.

Thanks Dennis. I would like to treat the room, since this will be a dedicated space.
