Make acoustic panels for your recording studio or home theater
Hi Katherine. I hope you had some luck building these panels and I'm happy to hear that your friends have been helped too! For voice work, the cheapest way to go would be to install four of them directly in the corner—two on each wall with no space between them (from the top, they would make a 'v' shape). Ideally, they'd be placed at a height where microphone would be about half-way between the top and bottom of the panels.If you want more coverage, I would suggest 4 per wall. Again, for voice work, keeping height so that your microphone is about halfway between the top and bottom would be ideal. You could also stagger the heights. Try alternating so that every other panel is about 8-12 inches higher than the others. Hope that helps!
I am planning on adding these panels to a personal voice over recording studio room about 12x12. How many panels do you suggest I build, what dimentions should I make them and can you please provide some insight for placement? Thank you so much, I have been sent this link by two separate people - suggesting they are a great idea.
