Acoustic pannels on the front wall

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 8/23/13 Recent Posts

In use 8030 in my project studio. I'm in the process of moving my studio to a new place and I will do some acoustic treatment there before.

I saw that Genelec recommands to place speaker 5cm from the front wall. In this case, would it make sense to have an acoustic pannel (like GIK or Real Trap) between the wall and the speaker ? Or is there another place on the front where I should use thins kind of pannel (like between or over the speakers) ?

Thank you for your help !

Have you already read our Monitor Setup Guide? It contains a lot of tips about speaker placement and also acoustic treatment of the room.

Most important places for acoustic panels are in the first reflection points. You can find them by sitting at the listening position and having a friend run a flat mirror on the walls. The point where you can see the speaker through the mirror is the first reflection point. Notice that first reflection points can also be found on the ceiling and floor/table.
