  • How big is your room? W' x L' x H'

    Please share some of your listening room dimensions with the membership.

    How would you characterize your room size? small, medium, large?
    Approximate size in feet: ??
    ' W x ??' L x ??' H
    Additional info:


    I'll start things off with my room:

    Approximate size in feet: 18' W x 43' L x 8' H (a little over 6000 cubic ft.)

    Additional info: Multipurpose rooms with priority towards 2-channel listening. Speakers setup along 18' wall. It also has many open spaces to much larger areas of my home outside of this space.


    Thanks!

    My room is a little odd shaped. For the sake of calculating square footage 19x12x8. But the back of the room opens into a hallway and also there's an opening from the kitchen into the living room. So for all practical purposes the room is probably another 8 ft longer. Plus it has irregular corners meaning there are columns in two diagonally opposite corners breaking things up (Art Noxon actually told me one time having those columns -- that was in another apt -- can help the sound). Jack and Andre have seen it. I use a combination of Cathedral Sound panels in the corners combined with some Stillpoint Aperture panels at the first reflection point.

    And yes being in NYC, everything is multipurpose including the bedroom and bathroom.

      About 6138 CF. Every surface has been designed to work for two channel system. I have no surround sound.

          Them some big rooms here. I guess mine falls into the small category. I need to get out of New York more and see how the rest of the world lives.

            Approx. 31' x 22', 9' ceiling in the listening area which is most of the room, 8' in the rear. Acoustically symmetric.

              I've been to Brians, albeit quickly and it's a great room for his Sound Labs!

              I would love your dimensions.


              me - 5m wide, 6.9m wide and 2.4m high - old TV room. sounds a LOT better than my previous larger room - go figure.

                I have a dedicated space, but not an enclosed, dedicated room, in that the front left side opens into a hallway, the rear left side opens into a kitchen, and the rear right side opens into a separate audio equipment room. The listening room is 25' long, 20' wide and 14' high.

                  Ditto on both points! Very nice, Jack.

                  My smaller, enclosed room is 17'x23'x8', and sounds better than my larger room of somewhat similar dimensions, but open to the side and back with a very tall ceiling.

                    13-15 feet wide, 32 feet long and 8 feet wide. Would love to have an extra 3 feet wideness. The front wall has a lot of RPG acoustic panels and bass trapping, the back wall a full wall bookcase filled mainly with books. CDs and LPs are on lateral bookcases behind the listening position.
                    My opinions rely on listening mainly to acoustical, non amplified music. I do not care about electronic music or listening to rock at stadium levels, but I enjoy Mahler and Shostakovitch.

                      The "big rig" is in a room that is 17 feet wide x 20 feet long with a sloping ceiling in the width direction - 8 1/2 feet at one end increasing to 15 feet at the other side. The room is open to a hallway along 12 feet of the 20 foot length, so the room feels even bigger. Acoustics in this room are challenging - I want to experiment more with room treatment.

                      I've also got a second system in a smaller room that is 8 feet wide x 20 feet long x 8 feet high. This room seems to be easier to tame but perhaps it's because the speakers here have more limited low end response.

                        I had to create a mock room in un unfinished basement as there isn't enough room upstairs for a dedicated space. It's fiberglass insulated all the way around from floor to ceiling and covered with plastic sheathing. I have 4'x12' alcove on the left side into which I've placed all of the IKEA KALLAX shelving units for my vinyl. Behind my seating position (a couch) there is another 6 feet I'm using for a bit of storage. My room is thereby larger than the usable space for my system, which measures roughly 12x16. I created a wall on the right side using about 40 storage boxes from floor to ceiling to enclose the space.

                        A little ingenuity goes a long way, and I must admit this space gives me better sound than when I had a dedicated and treated space of 12x19 in my apartment in Toronto. The one setback is that I can't really pump up the volume too much, but I'm ok with that as I generally don't listen at super loud levels.

                          I have an "L" shaped room with the bottom of the "L" at the listening position and pointing to the left as you are sitting. This adds around 4' to the width of the room at the listening position. The main portion of the room is 15' W x 23' L x 9' H. This is a dedicated 2 channel room that is sound isolated from the main part of my home. I had an addition built onto my home so I could have this room.

                            Thanks guys. I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to spec the house from a blank sheet of paper. The house is literally designed around and over those chosen dimensions. I hope I never need to move!
