I've got a quick one for you....
I'm a mixing engineer at our church alternative (rock) worship service and we are building a new sound booth.
we've built a 2x8 studwall behind our mixing position attached to a 12" thick concrete block wall.  I would like to minimize sound REFLECTION from the wall interfering
with hearing the room sound.......what kind of (simple, inexpensive..its a church..and effective) absorbtion treatments would you suggest???

Hello Todd,

Seem like you have a sound conditioning problem.  The cheapest solution to this problem is 2 foot by 2 foot pyramid panels.  I would cover the wall that is reverberating the sound.  The open cell foam of the pyramid panels helps to stop the reflection of the sound waves against that wall resulting in a cleaner, less reverberant sound.  Another possible solution though a little more expensive is to use a closed cell foam on that wall.  The closed cell foam stops the reflection of sound and also absorbs sound.  

Thank you for your questions,
