What is the sound characteristic of Carada screen? The front of the room should be sound dead so does the screen absorb sound or reflect it?

If sound treatment was done behind the screen will it work?

Xavier,


PVC surface materials are going to reflect some sound, especially in mid and higher frequencies. But I'm not an expert when it comes to high-end audio theory. I’d ask some of the gurus in the Audio Theory forum and see what their opinions are as to whether it would be worthwhile to install wall treatments behind the screen (but my guess is that it would not be).

Any ideas on room treatment in the front when there is a big screen?

Screens can be quite reflective, so treating behind the screen won't help for the HF much, since that will reflect quite easily off the screen, however you might catch some mid & low freq that go through the screen.


I will be using heavy curtains in front of the screen for 2-channel, since the screen very audibly degrades the imaging for me.
