Can't be done, the design won't let it. There's not full frame ;) (as in CHEAP)

Thank you Ro for posting this!
I have a question: Regarding the corner absorbing devices, is it necessary to cover it with plastic first? Wouldn't it have a better to cover it with cloth only?
Cheers, Laurent

Howdy L,

Depending on it's function....
In general you will need BASS absorbers in corners. That means you have to "filter" out the HIGH frequencies or else you'll end up with a very dead room (yes, the cornerabsorbers WILL absorb all frequencies if ye only add cloth).

The plastic only filters out the highs, maybe some mid-highs too. We used just a few broadband panels on the walls that are aimed to capture mid-low and all above.

So, the plastic functions as a low-pass filter.. so to speak.

Maybe a silly question, but what type of plastic did you use? To cover the corner panels, that is? Is there anything else that can be used as a (cheap) low pass filter?

hello...
Nice work....
I also had done a redesign.. But the fact I want to share is that I was hugely helped by Sketchup, 3D designing tool. Is anyone interest about it?
