Do-It-Yourself Acoustic Treatments and Evaluation

Most people think about making burlap-covered fiberglass panels when they think about DIY Acoustics, but making effective treatments is only part of the process. The important first step is figuring out what to build and where to put the treatments you’ve made. XIX Acoustics began from doing DIY Acoustic treatments in our home studio.  Hendrik has been heavily influenced by the awesome works of Real Traps’ Ethan Winer and especially the Bass Trap Article: Build a Better Bass Trap.
