Corner Setup

Member for

Howdy to the forum here. This place has some great reads and some very funny ones...

I know I'm probably breaking every cardinal rule by setting up my listening area in a corner but the spouse got the corner desk for me to take up less room in the living room so I kinda need to use it (ahem). I have already noticed an increase in bass response (which i really was surprised considering i have so-so monitors - FOSTEX PS-3.1). I have a sub with a level adjustment. I was considering some sort of corner baffle? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

You'll basically have to re-learn how to mix with the same stuff. If you have anything that you did before that you KNOW how it sounded before, use that as a reference, and adjust levels of the sub, and get used to how it changed.

Deadening may or may not help. Depends. It took me months to get used to a different setup when I moved.

You may have read or seen in places, here at RO specifically, about corners, small rooms and the need for trapping in those corners.

That is where the sound vibrations move to. To the edges or boundries of the panels on the wall.

Any corner, pick one :)

Essentially you are smack in the middle of your bottom end.

If I can say that in a pubic forum...
