"Do I need a carpet?"

setting up a new studio

Does your room have a carpeted floor? Or are you thinking about putting down a carpet?

Because you often read that that’s one of the first things you should do if you’re just getting started with treating your room. And it does reduce the reverb in the room a little after all.

But does it actually help in the grand scheme of things? 

And how does it affect the floor reflection or floor bounce?

In today’s video I want to show you what a carpet does to the acoustics in your room, and why it’s not really a good idea if you actually want to take treating your room seriously to get a better sound from your speakers.

I’ll also show you what to do if you’re stuck with a carpeted floor in the room that you have available.

  • Optimize the low end and minimize reflection effects
  • Get the distance between wall and speakers right
  • Get a stereo image like on really good headphones
