Meandering into the world of room treatments slowly. 

Atta boy Chuckie!  Always a pacesetter never a follower.  Slow and easy sittin HARD on that gold card!  Got you all over it.  Keep up the good work!  

 

I had a master plan once until I really thought about it.  Pullin the stripper pole outta the crawl space, where to put it in here all came into play.  Those lil lizards w/the bruises on their thighs wouldn't even know what a bass trap was.  Just crank it up and let it go.  😂  💪  😂

Truth be told...it actually does. I have not noticed any Echo whatsoever 

 

Tell us about the furnishings in that room?

 

Real, as in 1/4 inch thick paneling does work well. Got plaster here and I just put away the pillows I'd had out since prior to the thick semi-wool rug!

Just an antique sofa a couple of antique chairs and a large glass coffee table. Well, there is also a giant wood stove. The floor is hardwood with two giant area rugs.

Think that might be doing it! Saw the paneling the other day with that bell on the wall. That's what was in the house I grew up in and lots I rented and worked great when I was giving the Heresy IIs a workout with my old Yamaha RX1100!

Echo? do you mean distinct slap echo? Many rooms because of shape/size and furnishings do not have objectionable slap echo. But what about reverb? And @Marvel brings up a good point, if uneven and bumpy it could add to diffusion. The smaller the bumps the higher the frequency of diffusion.

Many people prefer "live" rooms for audio REproduction. In PROduction it is a distraction. I prefer dead quiet, I can always add reverb.

But hey I'm no expert.

Honestly, after over fifty years of playing the drums, I hardly notice any minor details anymore. I'm actually used to hearing Echo in music anyway. Live sound guys tend to go that route. Not so much interested in fidelity but volume and soundstage. I'm just happy that it seems to work for me.

Dang!

@Abomb that's some millage! as in mm's of paint, or is it elastomeric inside?

Can't tell from here except it was laid on heavy!

 

If it is elasto and that heavy I'd wager it would absorb some sound! Since elasto is akin to paint and caulk mixed together a fiver weighs 50% or better more than just paint.... I know, try carrying four fives up the stairs ten floors up an unfinished building when it's 110 inside! That's FL heat there!

Didn’t think that we were going to keep the stucco after the purchase of the house. We later discovered that stucco walls serve a time honored purpose. Home alone? Have an itch on your back? Have stucco walls? Problem solved! 😁
