Controling echo in a tall room
Haven't visited this forum in a long time. Finished my house, moved in, now I'm finding the vaulted ceiling in my great room pretty echo inducing, and am wondering if anyone can offer guidance.
In a nutshell, I'm wondering how much of the walls and ceiling I'd have to cover with acoustic absorber mats to make an appreciable difference in this regard: I have some stretch canvas paintings that I could back with the cotton based absorbers, as well as some handwoven blankets and the like.
Ultimately, it would still be a pretty small percentage of the total surface area. Wondering if anyone has tried anything similar, or can offer other advice.
