The floor to ceiling dimensions in our rooms is the smallest of the three total dimensions. Since it is the smallest, it will produce unwanted low -frequency pressure issues around 50 – 70 Hz. The issue then becomes how do we treat this 50 – 70 Hz. + 8 – + 10 dB issue between our 8′ ceiling height and the floor where we have our DAW. Our DAW is sitting between the floor and the ceiling and it is sitting in a “pool” of low frequency modal soup that will have a negative impact on our mixes. We may hear more frequencies within that 50 – 70 Hz. range than we want to. Certain octave bands will be exaggerated. Some will not be heard at all and will be smothered with low frequency mud and will drop out of the response curve..
To avoid this situation, we have two options. We can treat the ceiling or the floor. It takes two parallel surfaces to produce unwanted low-frequency modal pressure. The two surfaces here are the floor and ceiling. To treat the 50 – 70 Hz. issues, we will need an absorber that is at least 10″ deep and will weigh a lot. Sometimes we can build it into the ceiling if we have the proper ceiling construction methodology and the space. Depending on the room width and length, it may be best to treat both the floor and the ceiling. This will depend on how severe your issues are with your room usage. If we can not do both surface areas then we should treat the floor with our DAWP Digital Audio Work Platform.
The platform is composed of individual modules that measure 24″ w x 48″ l x 10″ d. These modules sit next to each other to form a platform. You can adjust the total size and footprint of the platform by addressing how much surface area we will need to treat your floor to ceiling modal issues. We then calculate the square footage coverage we need to treat the issues then design the platform to accommodate the room requirements along with the DAW footprint. Modules are black paint with 1/4″ vinyl non skid surface treatment on both sides of each module. Each module weighs 150 lbs. The smallest platform we offer is 4 units.
