Tweaks: Jon Risch Acuostic Panels at first and second reflection points and front wall. Foam (for right now) absroptive panels at first ceiling reflection point.





Absorbant triangular panels in room corners

1x6 tongue & groove knotty pine wall panels. Becasue of the varied spacing between the panel joints, tongue in groove panels provide a modicum of bass trap effect in the room. Of course the room in NOT soundproof because of this.

Shadow T. Gato, the acoustic cat.

Adding the Jon Risch panels elevated my room/system to a new level. It was like a major component upgrade.

Next task is to contsruct JR bass traps to tame the LF modes in my room.
