  • Sonic Barrier Acoustic Panels

    Due to my recent upgrades I decided to hang some foam panels up on the wall to help with reflections I was getting in my somewhat square room. I used our new Sonic Barrier foam and command strips to hang them. There is a noticeable difference. There was no rhyme or reason to where I put them, I just wanted something around tweeter/head level.

    Ignore my existing furniture, that stuff will be replaced in a couple weeks. UM18 boxes make for good end tables though...

    Love the make shift coffee table and chair, been there, done that. Man I can only imagine the bass response in that room, it's gotta be crazy good.

    ​Is there an adhesive on the panels for hanging them or did you use a different method?

      I like the chair and cardboard box table as it's similar to what I have. Nothing but the best for decor.

        Kevin,

        I used basic command strips to hang these, just two strips on each panel in the top corners. They work really well. And yes...the bass response is a bit ridiculous. I'm still tweaking here and there but it's getting dialed in. The room is 11x12ish. I would genuinely be worried if I tried maxing these subs in this room. I have found the resonant frequency of my floor is about 7 Hz

        Damn skippy. My new stuff will be here in two weeks, I can't wait. That bag chair isn't the most comfortable thing (hence the pillow).

          Matt is there a general rule of thumb as far as placement and the amount needed?

              ​I thought I saw some handcuffs and maybe some cattails. Is this a fifty shades of subwoofer room?

                Is that a woofer/clock on the right side behind the speaker?
                I AM stealing that! (The idea, I mean)

                  There are guidelines using Sabine's formulas, considering angle of incidence.

                    While I know this is an older thread, in response to Tom-
                    Yes- it's a woofer clock. Matt had a bad HiVi D8.8+ a while back. It has 12 mounting holes, and he asked what to do with it instead of throw it out. I suggested a clock, and he documented how he assembled it to look the woofer was still a functional piece without having the magnet still inside the frame. What he did was quite slick!

                      The UM18's give a new meaning to the 'elephant in the room'....Is there any information on the other speakers you are using?
