Improving the Acoustics of a Two Channel Listening Room

Improving the Acoustics of a Two Channel Listening Room

Client Profile and Project Overview

We recently completed a project to improve the acoustics of a two channel listening room for a audiophile in MA, USA. This music lover has a high-end music system that includes Rockport Avior speakers and a Constellation Centaur stereo power amplifier.

Rockport Avior speakers

Despite having nearly $100k invested in the two channel system, there were a number of subjective areas that required sonic improvement. In the client's words:

"The room is a bit 'lively' in my opinion although I don’t find the highs to be overbearing. Bass was tighter and a better defined in the room I auditioned the speakers in."

As the client did not have a room acoustic measurement system, we sent our easy-to-use kit, which does not require installation of measurement software on a computer.

The project followed our standard process for two channel listening rooms that have already been built: Room Acoustic Analysis followed by Acoustic Treatment Design.

We used a combination of RPG and Vicoustic acoustic treatments including a 50/50 mix of DC2 diffusers and CinemaRound absorbers on the ceiling as well as two Modex Edge and two Modex Broadband bass traps. The Modex Edge is a multi-compartment Helmholtz absorber, and the Modex Broadband is a damped steel plate bass trap. Both offer state-of-the-art bass trapping performance for high performance music reproduction spaces.

Here's our acoustic treatment concept for the room:

In the Client's Words

"Sound in my two channel listening room is much improved since implementing your corrections, it’s an amazing thing and gives me great pleasure on a day like today when its zero degrees outside!"
