I drank the kool aid

    I have often been asked why I don't have any room treatments in any of my systems. The truth be told, I had to compromise between audio perfection and that these are living spaces in our home and not dedicated audio rooms. It has been this way for 20+ years. That is until a friend came by with some acoustic panels for me to try. The sun room is the closest thing to a man cave I have, so playtime began. We just set them on the speaker cabinets behind the horns, dropped the needle on some vinyl and sat for a listen. WOW! It was instantaneous. The system was more focused, cleaner and seemed louder. I was blown away how such a simple change could make such a huge difference in this room. I expect all the glass was really messing with the sound and the panels helped with all the reflections. I was so impressed I purchased them and I went out to my wood shop to build some stands for the panels. There isn't a clean way to attach the panels the glass windows. I am a happy camper, I have seen the light and I am a believer.

    That's not Kool-Aid you drank. That's 100% pure unadulterated audio science.

    I'm sure you'll figure out a way to attach the panels to the windows in a temporary fashion. Just some slick engineering design needed....

    Prior to diffusors........Bass traps.

    The right sized suction cups may do the trick?
