Proper Room Dimensions/Designs/Acoustics

I have the chance to build, from ground up, a dedicated listening room. I have spoken with Dennis Foley about the proper design, dimensions etc. Does anyone have any experience either directly or indirectly with him? He designs the room, so all the diffusers/absorbers are built in, instead of using additional stand alone devices.

Don't know him, but I'd agree, there are many ways to screw up a room.

From what I've read the ideal dimensions would be some multiple of 1 x 1.625, with the latter (the "long wall") where the side speakers would be positioned.

Having worked in a few recording studios, the engineers always tell me "no parallel walls".

I moved my audio system down to our family room, creating a "man cave" and pursued multiple upgrades, each one easy to incorporate into the room...until the new sub woofers arrived. The room is roughly 24 x 26 and has all sorts of zones where certain low frequency tones resonate greatly, others where I have big dead spots. I am about 90% to where I'd like to be, thanks to installing bass traps from ATS Acoustics.

Good luck with your project!
