The room Im mixing and recording in has some problems to start with, like any other. I have two windows, a ceiliing that rises at an angle rather than being flat, and a reflective sounding floor... Giving me more ringing and reflections than I would like. I have a couch, a chair, and a few area rugs to start to help.
This package is the first set of treatment that I put in my room, (I first had sweatshirts hanging all around my room, which surprisingly did help with some noise) I was happy with how much area the 36 pieces actually covered. They are pretty thick and strong so you immediately feel the potential this kit has.
Not having any bass traps, and only about 1/4 of my room covered with these panels...I opened up a mix I was working on about a week before. Instantly I could hear different EQs that needed to be improved, whether cuts or boosts were too much, or something needed to be rolled off. Some of the bass was way too much, and I had never even heard it that week before.
So I guess Im saying that I am very pleased with the quality. I cant wait to get the bass traps and another one or two of these kits to finish my room.
The only reason I did a 4.5 instead of 5 star rating is because my room isnt completely done yet, so I want to see what it will be like when its finished. Im almost positive when it is, that will go up to a 5.
My only tiny problem, which isnt even a problem, but probably my fault...is the adhesive tabs. They are stick-double sided (obviously)... But dont rely on just slapping the adhesive on the back of the panel lightly, then hoping the force of you pushing it against the wall will just stay forever...
I had about 10-12 fall down over 2 or 3 days... and after I realized its because you really have to push the adhesive onto the panel WELL in the first place. Hold down a solid 5-10 seconds directly on it. Then you can put them on your wall...I had a friend help me and we pretty much just place the adhesive on the panel and pushed it on the wall and found out the hard way (THIS GETS VERY TIRING WHEN WORKING WITH YOUR ARMS ABOVE YOUR HEAD)
Save yourself the energy and take the time to do it right in the first place. Other than that, this is great..and i havent had another one fall down since. Thank you Sweetwater/sales rep.
