Room in custom-designed house for classical music
 
I'm in a position to optimize my planned "man-cave" for two-channel classical music listening because it will be in a new house designed from scratch. My space requirements are 800-900 sq ft and there are no ceiling height constraints. Using online calculators, I can show the architect how to dimension it for room modes. What else should I tell him?

If you really want to get this right, the first thing you should tell the builder is that you need some time to find a good room designer to put together a proper plan. Two of the resident experts on this board are @Nyal Mellor and Shawn Bryne @SierraMikeBravo . This isn't something that can be thrown together with five minutes on Google.

Yes, a lot more that could go into a high end audio listening room than just room dimensions. Other very important things include:
- sound isolation
- use of the structure of the room (walls, ceiling, floor, etc) for bass trapping
- HVAC
- electrical
- low voltage wiring
- acoustic treatment


You can design the whole room before any framing starts, and if you do it that way things like acoustic treatment can be integrated into the structure of the room rather than just being panels you hang on the wall.
