Very, very nice.
I know we've corresponded via threads and PM, and discussed many things, however you're attention to all detailed aspects in your particular room is impressive. I'm particularly interested in the angled, redirected lateral reflection points. Typically, I prefer and recommend attenuation of ceiling energy between mains and the LP if appropriate, as I've found it tends to obfuscate some detail via smearing. However in your scenario, with the side panels redirecting lateral energy upward, I can see the interest in additional diffusion. Bottom line, I'd very much enjoy hearing your system in the environment you've created.
Also, as a fellow OmniMic user, I'm interested in your opinion of it.
Thanks and again, love the space.
Regarding the side wall reflective baffles, I built them to eliminate the flutter echo between the side walls, at the same time as likely reducing comb filtering of mid to lower frequencies. I plan on using OmniMic's Frequency, Impulse Response, and Reverb/Bass Decay charts to optimize what angles each row of baffles should be at. I'll try 20, 30 and 40 degrees for starters which gives me 27 different combinations to evaluate. This shouldn't take too long given that last week I took 99 measurements over two hours for all possible sub location combinations using my pair of subs. As you can see from the pictures, I'm using diffusion at ear level on the side wall first reflection points as I found that (i)reflection offered the best 'liveliness' but caused a reduction of musical details, and (ii)absorption sounded a bit unnatural but offered the best musical detail recovery, and (iii)diffusion was very close behind absorption for musical detail recovery but still offered the liveliness of reflection alone - kind of the best of both of the other two tools.
OmniMic is a terrific tool - very user friendly and offers the right amount of technical analysis for me for now. I'm still getting the hang of all its features. I don't particularily like its Reverb chart where you have to click along the decay trail to get a RT60 reading for a user specified frequency range. I would rather see a histogram (bar chart) with freq on the x-axis and time on the y-axis for easier comparison across the frequency bandwidth. Also, as RT60 isn't applicable to domestic rooms, I'd rather see an RT20 or RT30 calculation instead.
Now how about sharing some photos of your man cave?!
