    diffuser

    think this can be used as a diffuser on the wall behind the speakers?

    Re: diffuser

    It may be more reflective (Not in a good way) than a diffuser since the majority is flat.

    Re: diffuser

    inexpensive yet very functional diffusors can be had by using molded drop in ceiling tiles. They can be painted to match your decor.
    I use the "Petal" design. Available online from "Houzz". 5 tiles each 2' x 2' cost $45.
    I've cut cut and glued in styrofoam as a backer and attach them to the wall with 3M removable strips.
    other styles also available.
    FYI FWIW.

    A trusty old Pioneer PD-65 as a Transport, A MicroRendui, a Merrill Heirloom T.T. as sources. A Lampizator DAC to PAD Cables to a SP-14 Tubed PreAmp, Coincident Frankenstein 300B monoblocks, & or Valvet E-2, Fusion speaker cables, AudioKinesis Zephryn 46 Speakers. pair Rythmik F-12 subs, EP2050, DCCA Furutech and Kaplan Power cables, APC power conditioner, Two dedicated 20Amp power lines. DIY corner traps and Acoustic Geometry Curves for room treatment.

    Not effective at all as a diffusor. As Mike points out being flat it will be mostly reflective. There is lots of superior options out there if you do a bit a research.
