I have been waiting for quite long to get dedicated movie room and finally it is coming reality as we bought a house and there is one room where I have pretty much free hands. The room size is not ideal but that is what I have to work with, dimensions are 390cm (12.8ft) x 440cm (14.4ft) x 250cm (8.2ft) and the room has laminate flooring. There is 2 windows and one door in the room. I'm thinking on placing some big soft carpet in front of seats and also thinking about using couple acoustic panels. Question about acoustic panels is how many should I get, what size they should be and where should I be placing them? I have included two floor plans I made with paint that I would like to use as starting point. Would it be bad idea to place shelves on side of the room like I have them in second plan?\n\nI have also been thinking on using bass traps in corners of room and possibly in corners of ceiling as well. How ever I have been thinking do I get real benefits in doing this? And what kind of bass traps would I need to use to get those benefits? Does the size and shape matter much? How about the material they are made from?
