How does unavoidable 'furniture' affect the room response?

setting up a new studio

How does unavoidable furniture, even things like amps, guitars, bass, et cetera, affect the acoustic response of the room?

It's quite hard to say “this” does exactly “that”. 

Rooms are way too unique to make that kind of assessment. 

And small rooms with a lot of clutter in them get so complicated so quickly in terms of their response that it's just really hard to pick apart and understand what exactly does what.

But let me give you a general guideline to assess the actual impact of furniture and other things in your room.



"How to correctly place your listening position and speakers, no matter what room you're in."

  • Find the correct wall to face in your home studio
  • 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
