Failing to consider the specifics of room dimensions, seat/speaker/monitor placement, and varied room usages can lead to real problems that ruin the performance of your audio room:

  • Poor sound quality, manifesting as listening fatigue, poor sound staging, and uneven, “one note” bass.
  • Lack of flexibility to accommodate different room usages, such as listening/mixing, recording and non-audio uses.

We stop you:

  • Relying on an architect, interior designer, or builder to dimension and layout your audio room. 
  • Wasting money on a room that is too small, too big, or the wrong dimensions.
  • Wishing you’d done things differently and suffering from the adverse effects of poor layout choices for the rest of your audio room’s lifespan.

Service Description

Choose Acoustic Frontiers’ Audio Room Layout if you’re converting or adding a room to your home for audio production (recording studio) or reproduction (listening room).


Our process starts with thoroughly evaluating how you plan to use the room. Then, we take your requirements and overlay them with industry best practices and our years of experience to design the perfect audio room for you. We’ll ensure the layout accommodates seating, speakers/studio monitors, furniture, doors/windows, occupant flow, and other architectural considerations.


If you have flexibility in dimensions, we’ll determine what size your room needs to be to accommodate your usage and ensure length/width/height ratios are optimized to minimize acoustic issues. Our expertise in the nuances of audio room dimensioning, including how speaker, listener, subwoofer number placement, and room construction impact room mode resonances, guarantees a superior result.


Our Audio Room Layout service is typically delivered through our Core Listening Room Design Package or our Core Home Recording Studio Design Package.

What You’ll Get

  • 2D CAD plan and elevation drawings illustrating all aspects of your room layout: room dimensions; seat placement; speaker/monitor placement; door/window locations; furniture placement.

What Do Our Clients Think?

“Acoustic Frontiers did an exceptional job with this room. The imaging and realism is astounding. The musicians are present in the room. The sound does not emanate from the speakers but the room itself. You don’t realize what you're missing until you listen in a room that is effectively nonexistent with respect to its negative impact on audible frequencies.
Lesson learned: Start with your room before you buy any high end gear. It is by far the most important ingredient to nirvana and the best money you will spend.”

“I spent a lot of effort and money adding a dedicated listening room addition to my home in 2015. I think it sounds fantastic and considerably better than anything I've heard at a dealer or audio shows. I spend many hours enjoying music each week. The room was easily the most important upgrade to my stereo system”

“As a mixing engineer and bass player, I could hear that my Marin home recording studio was lacking something in the lower register. I knew that I needed professional help designing a studio with acoustics that I could trust and enjoy. Acoustic Frontiers took my needs and limitations into consideration as they analyzed the acoustics, designed improving elements, and calibrated the equipment. I’m quite satisfied with the results. And I learned a few things along the way!”
