So when the last nail is set and the insul-shield is covered just how do you go about tunning the room to find out if you have any issues to correct?


Just how do you figure out if you need a bass trap or a diffuser etc. and proper placement?

I would recommend testing before the fabric goes up on the wall. Use a good RTA that can give you a time-level-frequency plot, as well as standard frequency response. This will give you a good idea on what's going on regarding absorption, modal characteristics, and room/speaker response.

Well youre in Cali and Im in NJ so it stands to reason that the echo would take a while. Lets see....3,000 miles and sound travels at 700+ mph depending on atmospheric conditions...... hmmm the echo must have used a worm hole.:D

Nice thread.


(About to show my ignorance) I assume "RTA" is real time analyzer?


Where do you get one? What does it cost? What distinguishes a good RTA from a bad one?

Actually, a good tutorial on this topic would be really nice if someone has the time. Both the theory, and the practical. Sort of a "what do I do?, and what am I looking for?" Then, of course, what to do to correct it.


Oh, yeah. In layman's terms, please.
