10' by 20', 7.5' ceilings.
This room was a nightmare. Sounded like an echo chamber. Put in wall to wall carpet and got a bunch of cheap down comforters for the walls, as well as blackout curtains for the sliding glass door. Sounds better now, but still haven't played in it. I just moved my amps today. It'll probably be a week until I get in there for good.

Just a thought... If youre still having reflections, you could also loosely tack some blankets or fabrics from the ceilings. You probably dont need that now, but its a thought. Or place a few of those panels they put in commercial drop-cielings.

Thanks guys. It seems to sound fairly neutral at the listening position. If it's still screwed I'll go with acoustic ceiling tile.

Those walls could be very problematic without all kinds of treatment, BUT don't fret. You will get it figured out, and it will be awesome.

Looks amazing, btw.

Got my recording stuff moved in and setup. First thing I did was crank Nothings Shocking.
Acoustics are actually very good. In my old room there was a messed up sound in the high end that was driving me crazy.

Looks like the basement in that movie, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. jk :lol:

Really cool - glad you got the room acoustics worked out. :thu:

So comrade..
That IS a pretty cool thing having a basement... The sound may escape upwards into to the house, but that usually isnt as big a problem as its blaring out to the neighbors.
Im out in the fuckin west, & there arent any basements... so bullshit as it is, were always trying to contain the sound into above ground space.
In my case, I might be getting a biggish TUFF SHED for my needs. Either way, its probably gonna be above ground & need to be soundproofed as much as possible... & that sucks.
I sure wish I had a basement!! :thu: :hi5:

They run anywhere from a small shed, to bigger than a 2 car garage. Even barns.. Not bad..
