A Guide to Placing Acoustic Treatments in Your Room
This blog is the last of our three-part series this month on acoustic treatments. While many people tend to think that sound is most impacted by a speaker, the acoustic properties of the room where it plays can have a profound effect on sound quality. Sometimes, even the best speakers can sound dead or lifeless in the wrong setting, or at least one that hasn’t been properly treated acoustically.
In part one of the series, we introduced you to acoustic treatments and why they’re important. In part two, we discussed the common types of acoustic treatments and how they work. In this post, we're going to delve into the basics of placing acoustic treatments in your room to optimize sound quality.
While acoustic treatment is most common for home theaters in Bountiful, UT homes, they’re equally valuable in two-channel listening rooms. In home theater settings, multiple speakers and subwoofers can present challenges with reflections, reverberation, and other issues discussed in the earlier blogs. In listening rooms, people tend to have high-performance speakers, amplifiers, and source equipment designed to extract every last decibel of detail from the sound – but that detail can get lost in a room with poor acoustics.
