We'll have to agree to differ on that.

I don't want to sound contrary for the sake of it but no Trev we won't as that would mean that on some fundamental level we would agree on this topic which we quite clearly don’t. You might not feel that the following is relevant but stick with it to it's conclusion as it is very much related and this is before we even get close to wave theory etc etc.


The first law of thermodynamics tells us all we need to know about this subject. It says, in non-nuclear events, energy is neither created nor destroyed. There is nothing to absorb it. It can, therefore, as you know, only bounce back.


We are discussing how to control this bouncing back in this particular room. We have to be extremely careful with what materials, and how, we chose to close this space off OR simply don't close it off at all and deal with the reflections (echo) and diffraction. Else we could end up with a situation similar to that of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge which is elementary physics taught to all O'grade, CSE students. Although there were other factors involved in the case sited the wind (in our case low frequency sound waves) hit exactly the right speed to cause the bridge to oscillate at it's natural structural frequency eventually destroying the bridge (our closed off MDF wall).


Granted the likelihood of the wall falling down are relatively slim however the problems caused by a vibrating structure in the mixing environment are not at all helpful. This is why I would never advocate closing off the space to someone of Chris inexperience in building, wave theory or physics.




Sorry Trev but on this we just do not agree.
