Trying to do some acoustic treatment in my small room
 
These are the pics of the room as it is now..

I don't have the exact measurements of the room, but it's about 9ft by 9ft, roughly speaking. I just tried to do a sort of scale drawing there on paint but it was really crap. Don't need anything fancy and i am prepared to buy as much rockwool as i'm going to need, i just don't know how to go about fitting it, or hanging it. And i'm unsure how to use what little space i do have. It's really just a temporary quick fix i need, ideally just something that i can hang up and it will make atleast some difference to the sound of the room. Any help and advice appreciated!

It would really halp to have a sketch of the room showing doors and windows (and anything else that isnt moveable). Try downloading google sketch-up. It's free and really simply to use.

I've done a small sketch, have no idea how to post it though :confused:

Good point Trev, but..... it aint necessarily so
When he uploaded the photos he most probably just connected his phone or digital camera to his computer and blah, blah, there you go.
Now, he has a "sketch" - the exact instructions for how to upload it depend on what kind of "sketch" it is. ie,
is it a "google sketch-up" sketch?
is it a pen/pencil and paper sketch?
is it a sketch done in Paint or some other similar simple draw program?

Piano, instructions are sure to come your way if you tell us exactly what kind of sketch you have done.

It's a google scetch up. I tried uploading it the way i did with the photos but it wouldn't let me :confused: It's the best drawing i could manage to do, not perfectly to scale or anything but it explains how things are set out etc

First you need to export a JPG image of your sketch. google scetch up does allow you to export a JPG - the option to do that should be there somewhere on the menu.

Got a question for you guys. After reading the little room SOS section in sound on sound. I noticed the guys treated some guys room with rockwool in velour bags. After a bit of searching online for something the same or similar, i found these http://www.readyacoustics.com/index....&cPath=26_11_2 (sorry if this link breaks the rules) They don't seem to be sold anywhere atall in the uk, i can't even find anything similar. Have any of you guys seen these before? Would it be worth getting a few of these shipped over? they do ship internationally. It's about 135 for four of the bags (including shipping) that are to the exact fit for a rockwool slab of 1200x600x100 mm which seems perfect. What do you guys think, good idea? Is there anything i can buy closer to home that's the similar that perhaps i've missed?

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Infact forget that. I just clicked on that GIK link on some other posters signature. I think i want some of those panels instead. All made up ready to hang. Reasonably priced too. That will do me nicely. :thumbsup:

Definately better value than the ready bags thingies. Ping FrankGIK a pm on this site. He is responsible for European sales. He'll also advise on best placement for you (but he too will need to see your sketch)

Think i'll do just that. Haven't got 'round to converting that sketch but i'll get it done. Will be a few months most likely before i'm ready to buy but they're definitely what i'm wanting. I'm actually quite pleasantly surprised at the price, i expected something like that to be more expensive.

Which kinda proves Trev's point about certain foam manufacturer's marketing techniques. :thumbsup:

Piano 10th April 2010 06:50 PM

This is the best i could do guys. It's not perfect to scale or anything but should give you the general idea of how i have things laid out and where windows are etc. If this is no good, i'll try and do something better. I know this is awful. By the way thanks saxman for the instructions, it was very simple to do :thumbsup:
