At Acoustic Geometry, we get asked a lot of questions, and most of them have to do with acoustic panels — what they are, where do they go, how do they mount on walls — all practical, need-to-know inquiries. So we made a video showing the basics of what acoustic panels are and where we recommend they go. There are even a couple of short scenes showing mounting methods.
How-to videos are always a trade-off between “let’s show every possible option and alternative” to “here it is, do what ya want”. Needless to say, here at Acoustic Geometry we often enthusiastically veer toward the Too-Much-Info category. But in this video, we present three levels of room treatments in a simple way that can be applied to a great many rooms, most of which are rectangular like the video example.
And while this video shows a home stereo/surround setup, it applies equally well to recording studios and other professional listening spaces. The principles are the same, and like we say in the video, your room treatments may vary. Give it a look and please let us know what you think. Thanks for watching!
