|This mooring a brilliant idea hit me. Instead of the pale and un-spicy while foam the boars me I will use a completely different idea. I so got hooked on it that I ordered the parts already. A few post above I made a post “Spectacularly cheap, pretty and effective.” about the new Kanuf brown fiberglass tubes. The picture does not make justice to them – in real world they look spectacular. So, my new brilliant idea is to get rid all my acoustic treatment on this wall:
And to replace it with a ccustom-made organ-like pipes, made from Kanuf brown fiberglass tubes. I mean I will build the organ like pattern, with a combination of the tube of different size and different diameters. The Kanuf brown unfinished pipes looks spectacular ion my room. The only concern I have is that the top of the type will be at the same level as the exit of horn mouth – so I naturally would like the types do not make any Helmholtz resonating; otherwise I would need to close the types.
I very much like the idea as it will kill all HF reflection and very dramatically randomize MF. It might also superbly cool looking. I will be hanging a few “trunks” of the Kanuf brown fiberglass tubes under the center ridge of the cathedral selling as well. The color of the Kanuf unfinished brown fiberglass tubes is very good matching with the color or my furniture and my carpet. Do not be too bound with the ugly plan-drawing I made. I do anticipate a very-very positive esthetic and caustic outcome of this attempt.
That was done two weeks back but now I am uploading some images. I find absolutely wonderful from my point of view configuration how to treat the space behind and above my listening spot. I used the untreated version of the new brown-color pressed fiberglass tubes and I organized them in organ pattern with pipes of different decameter and height. This gives a wonderful combination of high absorption at HF with diffusion at mid frequency. The wall now look, feel and the most important sound very good. It is so good that I even place one pipe at the ridge of the cathedral ceiling, hanging atop of the room.
I very much like this configuration. There is one minor moment that I note – the HF absorption become less affective with temperature in the run under 60F. I think it is not a big deal to keep it above 60 as below 60F to be in the room is not particularly comfortable.
There is no negative health impact that I observe. Until I touch the pipes with my bare hands I fee nothing and since the pipes are sitting on the walls I do not touch them. It looks like the “carbuncles” do not drop from the walls themselves.
My original version had no leafs but it was a bit too boring scene. I added some leafs here and there and it sparkled the wall up and made a very good balance to the wall across with the leafs-loaded “bronze” clock. I also fell that some leafs made the reflection patter more random.
Looking at the all of it ornamentation I can’t deny that all of it look very gay. Furthermore, looking at the fun I had inventing and doing all of it I begun to question if I was a gay. However, the pictures that I took this morning do not convey the true lay of the land. The room’s sides have red mahogany feel and the bare walls feel screamingly empty.
The foliage color is very good come along with mahogany, not to mention that foliage colors are my favorite colors. This is very much what I like, the decadence colors of dilapidating walls mixed with despair and decay. If any better place then like this to play Bruckner?
