Room treatments....

Post by HRDROKN » Tue Jul 05, 2011 5:18 pm

Just picked up some corner foam from the foam factory and was wondering how you all are attaching this stuff to your walls? Hopefully it's not spray adhesive... :lol:

I used push pins from the Dollar store. Doesn't mess up the walls, allows you to move things around. Been up for over a year and none have ever fallen down. Used for all room treatments, not just corner traps.

Generally speaking.... should I take the corners all the way up or would speaker height be enough?

Depends entirely on what happens when you place them. Try different things & see which works best. There is no standard placement other than corners & side wall reflection locations (in general). Too many parameters....

You can over do room treatments where sound is dead. Trial and error.
