Hi. I'm moving my studio into a house and I have two room available to me for my new studio. Neither are very good. One is a typical square bedroom, but decent size, 14'x~13'x~9'. The other is a larger bedroom with more square feet and cubic feed due to a vaulted ceiling but a really weird geometry.

Both rooms are carpeted and I don't have funds to change it so I was thinking to layout qty 3 4'x8'x3/4" pieces of MDF and covering that with a 8'x12' piece of vinyl floor remnant.

I have some acoustic treatments in my current room I'll move with but for the most part it is lots of traps with OC703.[img][img][/img][/img]

I'm assuming the room with the vaulted ceiling/bigger volume is better. Is this correct? Which room would be better?

Carpet is not a problem. The Mass of each boundary matters. Concrete walls reflect LF, plasterboard stud partitions absorb it a bit. Overall guessing is not really useful. I recommend placing your speakers in the potential locations and take acoustic measurements.
