Acoustics and diagonal/upward ceiling

Postby Pedro » Sat Apr 13, 2013 10:53 am


I'm building cheap home theater to my new home. I will try to do soundproof it as good as possible with low budget. Same is with acoustics. Walls will remain with smoothed concrete blocks (I know, that this is not good, but it will be fixed with carpets etc.) and there will be come rock wool and air to ceiling to do some more soundproof between this room and upper floor.


My main question is now:
  • Is it better to do diagonal ceiling or not? (with acoustics/sound proof) I could do only a little angle because of ventilation, only 2-3 cm / 5,8m. Wich one is better: first or second option? And why?

Sorry my poor English :wink:

Nothing wrong with block walls.

Generally keep the room as big as possible is a good idea.
