Pg 15 - Installing “FRP” Absorbers - CEILING
ceiling frp 14/28/05-This project, the first I’ve done in my home theater in about a year, is adding absorbers to the "first reflection points" (FRP). Sounds from these points around the room - front wall, side walls, rear wall, floor and ceiling - arrive just after the direct sound reaches listeners’ ears and confuses the brain resulting in a muddied sound and poor localization/imaging. By killing the first reflections, the sound clears up. This shot shows the ceiling absorber for the LCR speakers. It is sized and will be positioned to absorb the LCR sounds for all six seating locations.
ceiling frp 24/28/05-As I have an IR receiver - for the room lights - and two downlights where this will mount, I need to cut holes.
ceiling frp 34/28/05-All three holes are cut.
ceiling frp 44/28/05-The panel frame is mounted.  After installing an IR emitter and coming up with a way to allow the lights to shine through, I will glue in the 2" Owens Corning SelectSound Black fiberglass and cover the panel with black Guilford of Maine (GOM).
