Attic Studio: Do sloped ceilings reduce standing waves?

bass traps and low frequency control

Does your room have an angled wall or sloped ceiling?

Have you ever wondered if that could actually HELP with standing waves, maybe by reducing the chance of them happening in the first place?

After all, standing waves form between parallel surfaces. So breaking that geometry should have some effect, right?

(Those damn standing waves!!!)

Well, you’re not wrong. It does affect a part of the standing wave pattern in your room.

But it’s more a shift than a reduction.

Let me explain in this week’s video.
