Room Size (LxWxH): 25+' x 16' x 8'
Room Comments/Treatments: Wonderful sounding dedicated room with dormers at each end. Rear section adds four feet to about a third room width. With lots of measured experimentation, I was able to get very neutral response from 25 hz to 200 hz with a mild room lift. Use twelve bass traps, Skyline diffusors, an array of studio diffusors and three fake plants
