    This is a pure waste of money really and strongly advised against.

    They're made from material that isn't exactly the best material for bass management.
    I bought this kit in the past, it can only absorb high / mid frequencies, which leads to dark sound in the room because the energy on these frequencies is reduced while the low end energy is not reduced proportionally.

    You do need to put in some broadband bass control too, such as the old faithful rockwool traps. You could get the London 8 and the materials for the traps for the same price and would get a much better result.

    Thanks brother for your help. Did you have bass traps or broadband installed?

    Follow the advice of the previous posters. Owens Corning rigid fiberglass 703-5 & Roxul are the industry standards when it comes to trapping material. Don’t throw your money into that other junk. Also look up Ethan Winer. You can find him on Gearslutz, YouTube & his website....

    I think that’s a good solution, but I am certainly no expert on this, and there are people here with far far more knowledge. I think the Primacoustics help with one set of frequencies, you just need the other type for the low end.

    I have a mix of bass traps with and without scatter plate, tuned membrane bass traps and diffuser.

    Don't buy Primacoustics's products as Moogerfooger advises you ,this room kit will not help you at all, it will make your room dull lifeless on the contrary, it's a big scam really .
    However if you absolutely want to buy this kit, I can sell it to you for cheap :

    One question guys. I'm a little confused. Which company do you believe is good to buy acoustic panels or its better built them yourself?

    Thanks you guys.

    Some are from GIK Acoustics and the others made myself with rock wool 16 cm thickness and 40 cm thickness for corner bass trap.

    the rule is you fire length ways down, but in a square room, it would depend if you have things one the sides. What are the yellow things?

    Black is the desk, blue is bass traps / broadband diffuser, red is monitors, purple is the primacoustic stuff (behind, mirror position, but of bare wall space, and ceiling cloud). Far from perfect, it would be a good way to start.

    Sorry it’s not to scale, and believe it or not, my job involved creating detailed CAD drawings and I am a qualified surveyor! :rofl:
