like to do something about this by adjusting my speakers response
curves, becouse they are certainly a part of the problem. One option
would be to modify the speakers crossover, but how would a Helmholz
resonator inside the speaker enclosure work for this purpose?
Wow John - that would be doing a very brave thing. I would suggest
the first thing to do would be to identify the source of the problem.
How do mixes translate from your room to another? Is it the
speakers? Is it the room itself? Identify the problem and do
something about that. If it is the speakers - what is wrong with them
and address it. If it is the room, address that.
I would also appreciate if someone could point me to some general
guidelines for how a Helmholz resonator should be designed.
Have a look at my friend John Sayers website, one of the best studio
design sites on the web: http://www.lis.net.au/~johnsay/
... and if
you look under "studios under construction" you can see some pics of
my place as well.
