Is my room too small to get good sound?

setting up a new studio

If you’re just about to set up a new home studio and the only option for a room you’ve got is on the small end, then I’ll bet you’ve wondered:

Is this room TOO small?

Is it even possible to get good sound in a room this size?

Or is it a lost cause and you should go looking for something else?

Well, as so often in acoustics, there’s no real black and white answer to this question.

It’s more of matter of understanding what you’re getting yourself into with a certain room size and realizing where you really need to focus your efforts if you’re going to make it work.

In today’s video I want to show you how we classify a room as "small“ in the first place, what you need to be aware of if that’s what you’re facing, and the main thing you need to focus your efforts on, above anything else, to get good sound out of a small 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
