I want to build a riser - say 8" or so. While the construction of the riser is not too demanding, I'm wondering if I can use this to build a large bass trap. My room only has 2 corners, 1 of which is most likely not suitable for a bass trap. My PJ screen is only 12" off that front right wall.
The other corner is the back right corner. This could be doable, but I wanted to add a bar or something in the future.
Anyway - for the riser, is there a specific material to use, should I avoid this completely, will the room be dead after that???
While I'm doing this, should I run more sub cable for bass shakers, or anything else I'm forgetting?
I added a diagram with some decent detail. It is not to scale, but it should help visualize what I'm trying to do.
The riser will have either 3" or 4" holes cut into each bay. I will use 5.5" Roxul Safe & Sound leaving 2" of air on the bottom. 2"x8" studs will sit either directly on the tile floor, or some type of thick matt, like you would find in a gym.
I'd eventually like to add bass traps in the corner, but I don't see any real way to do this in this layout.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, including telling me this is a bad idea and will never absorb any frequencies
