So after watching the episode twice! Tons of really good info on what why and how!

 

Now after reading here i see a'lot of people say different or that the wall is enough reflection etc.

 

 

I'm picking up today some Ownes 703 and 705 for traps and absorption.  But now looking if i need to add diffusion or not?

 

 

By his guide you want 2d before seating area and 3d behind.  Is this still the standard we go by?

 

20% Absorption 

25% Diffusion

 

 

Thanks guys as this can get expensive want to make sure i'm heading in the right direction!

I don't have an hour to watch all that, but Anthony Grimani is pretty good so I'll take your word for it. Yes, room acoustics are more important than pretty much anything else.

Since you didn't give the size of your room, or any other information, I can't even guess as to how to advise you. I can point you to these articles and videos:

LOL, I totally missed that.


Diffusion is the key to making a room sound larger. It will never sound like a huge space, but you probably don't want that anyway. At 22 feet long, that's enough to benefit from diffusion.
