The basement is coming along. All the framing is finished, drywall will be finished by the end of the week!

I am taking pictures of it now, to give my fellow AVSers some ideas about the room size. I positioned the Danley DTS-10 around the room - wow. Subwoofer placement and acoustic treatment are BEYOND important (more than I realized)

The subwoofer seems to not be "trapped" in, like it was in my upstairs room. One thing is, the ceiling is now just floorboard, and there is a much more open space. When I corner loaded it, and stood in the opposite corner, it was _intense_ - just how I remember it. However, when I sit the subwoofer right behind the seating area, shooting towards the seats, it's hardly anything.

I am worried just the bare drywall on the inside walls will not provide enough resistance and let a lot of the sound through. I have looked at the forum post for Acoustical Wall Treatment debates, and wanted to start there. Would this be recommended by my AVSer friends?
