From the couple books I have read: Below 200-300hz the walls become less effective at blocking sound transmission. Room modes are thought to be augmented by bulking up walls, as you allude to, but they are best dealt with by dimensions and bass tra

Is it just me or is there nothing in the b stock store? I have been looking almost daily for months and finally gave up for a refurb set of m3's in a color I am unsure of.

Some notes on the room size... A "square" is an acoustical nightmare. 1 Foot difference in length or width will make a difference (pun intended) in the acoustical performance. Staggered Stud Wall is what Catbrat is mentioning with the 2

Is it too late to suggest something other than square (18x18) for the room dimensions ? IIRC the room would be large enough that the dominant room mode would be down at 30 Hz but it would still help a bit if you could get length and width to be diffe

To Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones. He turns 78 today! Whoa! There was nothing in the '60's that would have led us to believe that this could actually happen. And a RIP to Paul Revere (and the Raiders) who died last week @ 76.
