    Owens Corning 703 -- Do local stores carry them?

    Hi all, I've had great success with some DIY OC 703 panels that I made into 2" and 4" panels. Thing is, they cost nearly $110 to buy (6 of them) and shipping was 40% of the cost! I was in Home Depot yesterday, and they don't carry these panels. I'm wondering if anyone has had luck procuring...

    At what point did you stop REW measuring and buy treatments?

    Linearphase, here are the new scans with the name: "FEB 11 linearaudio.mdat"

    I suspect that user error keeps creeping into my measurement labelling or...I don't know what else. I wonder if there is an issue with my sub causing some problems. Hmmm. Anyway, I will do these new scans and carefully label them. I'll do each scan twice, too before changing the settings. I've...

    At what point did you stop REW measuring and buy treatments?

    Linearphase, all, here are some new scans. I moved all my gear out of the way except one integrated amp. Laptop out of the way. Gist: Sub front wall, center. Mic at 1" from sub, and then at MLP. Sub crossover at 65hz. Sub gain at 9pm first, then increased to 12 noon. Sub Phase varying from 0 to...

    Linearphase, First, kudos on helping out the homeless person. You have a good soul. I am using a UMIK1. I will try to get going on these measurements soon. I *knew* I should not have set up all my tube gear! It took forever to setup again. I will get it out of the way. Of course, if it needs to...

    Hi linearphase, Did the measurements as best I could, and because there was clipping, I had to adjust the levels a bit. I attempted to offset measurements so the were all aligned. Hope this is decent data. I have an uncorrected set if this one is messed up. Linearphase, I consider myself...

    At what point did you stop REW measuring and buy treatments?

    I limited the response because I'm aware that until the bass region is where it could be, the rest can be done more easily (maybe), later. The persons who relayed how their system improved were actually very grounded and sophisticated audiophiles, some with extensive scientific experimental...

    Thank you, AJ, that's a really grounded thing to hear. I want to assure you that I'm not OCD chasing better graphs. The system sounds really lovely. The reason I'm pursuing this now is that I have heard from others that a bit of treatment can bring a good room to a great level, and until I hear...

    Thank you, linearphase. I've copied your experiment into a separate document and separated each stage. I'll try to do the experiment later today or tomorrow and will post results. I'll answer a couple questions you asked with an attached photo. Basically, a concrete floor with thin carpet...

    P.S. Linearphase, others -- I decided to do a few scans today focused on the floor first reflection spot. I attach the scans, here. Using a mirror, I sought out the 1st point of reflection from speaker to LP mic. Hard to find, because my listening couch is just in front of the mic. The laser...

    linear phase -- Thanks again for all your hard work thinking about my issues. I'll keep my replies brief. I have tried 6" of fiberglass on the floor at the 1st reflection point, but not sure I measured. Will try again. I tried 2" on ceiling in correct spots but didn't see much of a result...

    At what point did you stop REW measuring and buy treatments?

    linearphase -- so much good thought in your comments. Thank you. I’ll make a few remarks in reply. Part of the low ceiling has been helped by sitting lower and having speakers on 20” stands. But you’re right. They’re an issue. This is what I have right now. Bass traps are definitely on my radar...

    Thank you billrobbo. I've not seen this calculator before. Appreciated.

    Thank you, Linear phase. I'll upload a picture/diagram in case it helps. CAVEAT: one picture/diagram is of a closed rectangle. My room, as the another picture I will post should indicate, is not a closed rectangle, but has an entrance hall on one side and a hallway leading off the other way. No...

    Thanks, Sonnie! I just clicked on your Cedar Creek Cinema link and watched the video. What popped into my mind while I watched it was that scene in the old comedy Wayne's World where they're bowing and scraping, yelling, "We're not worthy! We're not worthy!" What a wonderful room and setup! Kudos!
