I am finishing the tape and mud of my HT. Currently I am thinking through acoustic treatments for the room.
I know where & how most recommend acoustic treatments with linacoustic, bass traps, first reflections, etc. My question however has a slight twist....
Rather than using acoustic panels wrapped in acoustically transparent material up to ear height on the side walls, I am considering hollow panels wrapped in HEAVY velvet material. This material did not pass the "blown air" test. I am assuming this will perform well for the absoption of highs and mids and I would still need to address the bass traps seperately.
Why am I considering this? I have a sliding glass door in the rear of the room that has this velvet as a curtain with black-out cloth sewn onto it. I would like to maintain the use of it throughout the room rather than a GOM selection that might not maintain the same look.
Thanks in advance.
