Topic: New Music Room Complete
Well, I've finally completed a new music room!
It is almost 100% sound-proof (Roxul "Safe & Sound" insulated), uses 50% wood + 50% porous fibre strips on the walls, hi-density acoustic ceiling tiles, plus staggered-joint "bass traps" in the corners to make the sound warm and not boxy. I discussed the design beforehand with a local sound engineer at a radio station, and he thought the whole concept was ideal. I wired the whole room on a 20-amp isolated ground circuit (no noise, no power drop), the lights are dim-able LEDs (no 60-cycle hum), and my "babies" are hung up where I can't kick them over. The stereo is a 200-watt Kenwood + Polk Audio studio monitors, so I can crank it up and play along with all of my favorite groups.
Just need to finish wiring in the heater and get the effects pedals set up, and the grass may not get mowed for a l-o-n-g time!
