    Room Treatments Advice

    I am considering adding room treatments to my listening room. I found a local shop that manufactures and sells acoustic treatments.
    They can come to my place, run a RT60 test to determine the characteristics of my room and make recommendations for treatments.
    Has anyone here gone through that process? If so, any suggestions and/or recommendations of what I should be looking for or asking for?

    Acoustic Frontiers designed my media room with emphasis on stereo music listening, acoustically measured the room, and provided the wall hanging acoustic panels mainly from RPG. Acoustic Frontiers has a VG website explaining what's involved in improving room acoustics.

    For one, my speaker manufacturer recommends diffusers. I added a few plants but I have seen folks using more substantial diffuser panels. Other than that, I donít know if I need anything else. Asking around to see what others have done and how they determined what they needed.

    Ok. What audible issue did you tell them you were experiencing and where did they tell you to place what specifically?
    Would you mind me asking what speakers?

    I only spoke with a salesperson. I did not tell them what I needed (as far as treatment).

    They have not told me anything yet.
    One of their services is to do a site visit (for a price) and do a test (RT60). Thatís where I stand right now.

    I have Omni polar speakers.

    Thank you!!

    Most of the better known acoustic treatment companies out there should be able to work with you from sketches of your room and propose a plan of effective treatment. ASC certainly was glad to help me when I was designing my room.

    From what I have seen, they offer a similar long-distance service as the one that you describe. However, the fact that the company is local and offers to do a site visit (not free) is appealing to me since they will be able to take measurements of the room and physically see the room.

    May want to do some research as to what they will offer you and how it compares to others in price and quality. Caveat Emptor applies here.

    Wondering if anybody done a RT60 test in their music room and what they did afterwards.
