I have a feeling you will like APC. If you have heard Tool and if you like Porcupine Tree and Opeth, you will probably like APC. APC was formed by Tool's lead singer, Maynard James Keenan. I consider him (one of) the best vocalist around today. I cannot recommend it highly enough, especially because it plays superbly on a good audio system. I struggle for words here, but the music is much more "immersive" and multi-layered and nuanced than most other rock bands.Thanks Arun!
It is pretty heavy considering it's size
Thanks also for the recommendations. I've never heard A Perfect Circle so will definitely try it out.
I quite like the idea, Sir, buss sitrep mein (naam) dalwa dena plz. LO(VV)LLOL, time for a joint operation code named 'Op Syren' at Philippines. Wot say Tritya?
P.S. Hope I'm not testing OP's nerves.
Bluu - from what little I know about acoustics, the goal will be to manage the RT60 (time for the direct reveberation time to decay by 60db). The goal should be, IMO, to try and get this under 0.5sec for all frequency ranges. Usually with carpets and rugs and curtains the higher frequency RT can be somewhat controlled. The trick is to get the low frequency say 200 hz and below to the RT goal, which will also be the toughest especially in the size of your room.I plan to use carpets, rugs, curtains etc as a base layer of deadening. Also make the room look nice. For the rest, I may save up for the GIK panels which sound good and look even better! Are there any other options which are more economical?
GIK panels are an excellent method. Only consider the 244 panel which are 5" thick and can absorb upto approx 80 hz. other option is DIY with rockwool or mineral wool and IMO effective and inexpensive acoustic panels can be built using this method as well - a lot of sites show step by step building methods and I believe a few forum members also have done this. You will need minimum 6 panels, say 2'x4'. 4 in the corners and 2 at first reflection points. Additionally you can put 2 more in the ctr. of the wall behind the speakers. Just my layman's suggestions BTW, I am sure there are people with significantly more knowledge in the forum. Hope they chime in.Overall, any other suggestions are most welcome. The room will be completely bare to begin with so if anyone has suggestions I can think of implementing them right from the get-go. My only request is to keep a reasonable budget in mind when recommending
Bluu,The long and slow blades idea helps. Will look around.
