New Photography Studio - too much echo
« on: September 22, 2008, 07:48:18 PM »
Hello All,

We just signed a lease to move into a larger studio space for our photo studio. The new facility is a 30'x30' open room with a slightly vaulted ceiling approx. 14'->16'.

All interior surfaces are hard (tile & sheetrock).

Can anyone offer up some suggestions on how to knock the echoes down in a space like this?

I was toying with the idea of going out and purchasing some inexpensive egg-crate bedding material to test with - but thought some intellectual input might be a better route.

TIA

Lawrence

You need to use materials with high NRC ratings, here is a link to aborption panels and baffels.And you need to cover 35-40% suface are for quality reduction.

Hi Kukur,

Egg crates give you a .25 NRC - not very good if only absorb 25% of sound that goes into them.  For real materials go to  http://www.soundproofing.org/sales/flameresistant.htm   These are Class A fire rated (necessary in a public space).  Why import from new zeland when you can get great stuff in America?
If your really strapped for $ you can always drape heavy velvet on the walls and from peak of ceiling.
