WHY SHOULD YOU FIX YOUR ROOM ACOUSTICS?
There are two main reasons for fixing your room acoustics.

  • Nothing affects the sound from your speakers more than the room acoustics. The variation in level between two different bass frequencies can easily exceed ±10 dB in an untreated room. Some bass frequencies – called standing waves – will have a prolonged reverberation time and thus create a bass energy build-up in the room. 
  • Hard reflections off the walls, floor, and ceiling will affect your listening experience more than you think. Your brain will try to separate the hard reflections from the direct sound, but it can’t, because the reflections arrive with a very short time delay. This has a fatiguing effect on your brain, making you less creative and unable to fully enjoy your sound system. 
    The use of a digital “room correction” system might help iron out the most prominent bass frequencies in the listening position, but unfortunately it can't do anything about the prolonged reverberation time of the standing waves. How could it? By capturing the sound once it has left the speakers?
  • As soon as you walk into a room, you are subconsciously affected by its acoustic properties. If the acoustics are too busy – like in a modern café with hard surfaces and no acoustic treatment – you feel uneasy and stressed. 
    If the acoustics are too damped, with curtains and thick absorbers, you will most likely get the feeling of the walls moving in on you. 
    Either way, the acoustics will affect your sense of space in a room – for the better or for the worse.
