Acoustic Treatment Design for an AVS Forum Member's Dedicated Home Theater

In the Client's Words
"I came across Nyal and Acoustic Frontiers through AVSForum. I was constructing a DIY dedicated room and was attracted to Nyal’s approach. Although AF would have done a turnkey acoustical plan for me, I wanted to have some hands on, as well as, save some money in the build. We had an initial discussion over the phone about the room and my goals for appearance, sound and staying within budget. After that, Nyal presented his preliminary study and design and we went from there.Being a novice to this type of build, I appreciated the prompt response and simple explanations given to my inquiries. Even though the room was 2/3rds completed, I appreciated Nyal’s willingness to work with me and offer guidance in regards to the acoustical design of the room. The front wall was basically a skeleton wall to house the speakers, no baffle wall. The side wall treatments were a combo of DIY design by Nyal and off the shelf TAD treatments from Kinetics. I will add that DIY were very easy to construct. For the ceiling, we hung QuadFusors from Auralex. Through the process a few minor adjustments were made here and there with the placement of QuadFusors and absorption treatments but nothing too drastic and there were no additional purchases required. The overall appearance of the room is awesome and the sound continues to leaves me speechless. Although I did not have the initial sound calibration done through Nyal, the company that did calibrate it was very impressed with the room sound as well as the response. We have entertained a few couples and friends since the completion of our project, all with the same response, wow!"
