The room is 11'7" x 18'3" by 8" tall. The screen wall and the wall to the right are exterior 2x6 constructed and insulated walls. The left wall is full height for 12' and then steps down to 3' tall and it is a 2x4 interior wall with no insulation. Master closet is on the other side of the left wall. The back wall is full height for 8' 2x4 constructed wall with no insulation, then is open for the rest of it for the entrance into the room. There is a bedroom on the other side of this wall that is my office and the closet is in between the theater and the office. Equipment is recessed into the closet wall. More on the construction of the walls later. This room is on the second floor of the home and there is no insulation in the floor but does have 12" of attic insulation above the ceiling of the theater room. A few pictures to help with the visualization.
Definitive Technology Bp 7002 tower speakers with the 12 " subs in the sides. I have since stopped using these subs because I have new sub that is Awesome. not using the Klipsh sub in the picture either. The glass table sneaking into the picture in the bottom right is no longer in the room.
Back wall. not the best placement for the surround speakers and am working on that. The back wall is the closet wall that leads into my office room. You can also see the large opening out of the room.
Here you can see the half wall into the room. I do wish it could be a full height wall with a door but the wife said no way.
The half wall from inside the room. The wife did let me build the full height wall out to the same point as the other wall so the inside of the stair well would be even.
This weekend I was able to take some measurements of the speakers in the room before any treatments or bass traps where installed. I already had the traps built so was easy to install them after making the first set of measurements so as not to change anything else but adding them. I didnt turn off the receiver or even unplug the mic. while doing it to not have any other factors. Here is my first set of measurements from the untreated room. I tried to pay close attention to how the graph are supposed to be configured but I must say there are several different thoughts on the forum so I hope they are the way you all want to see them.
The first one is full range left speaker no treatments no aud.
Full range right speaker no treatments no aud.
Sub no treatments no aud.
All for this post continue in a second. Please hang tight.
