I have not done any real test's yet. I have not run my cables yet. However, I have put the bedroom stereo in the live room, its about 60 watts/side with a sub. I floored it out with some AC/DC, stepped outside and shut the 2 doors. If you listen real close you can just bear ly hear it and no bass!.
 I had the wife go inside and whack a Pearl Piccolo snare while I stood outside. Again I could hardly hear it.So I am figuring I was successful at good isolation and I still have acoustic panels for the wall, about 20 of them 2'x4'x4" and a couple throw rugs for the floor. I am also going to double seal the 2 entrance doors with silicon weather stripping.
 The sound of the stereo in the live area, so far its a little bass heavy. Not so bad figuring bare sheet-rock walls and bare wood floors. I have some Lenrd bass traps in the corners(temporary until I can afford some Real Traps)When the panela go up I think it will sound allot better.
 The control room has acoustic foam on the walls and ceiling with Lenrds in the corners. The floor is bare wood.I was surprised at how much better the stereo sounded in there. Crystal clear!I listoned to some familiar music and it sounded great.
 I purchased Event SP8's for my new near-fields but with my luck one of them came faulty and has to return Mad .
The glass people will be installing the CR window glass on Friday. 1/2" and 3/8". The door to the CR also has double glass. So far I only have one installed but have provision for a second one later on if I need it, I'm sure I will.

Thanks for the help so far,

Clifford.

O.K. My replacement SP-8 arrived today so I will be checking them out over the weekend. The CR is finished except for wiring.
My new computer is on its way and so are my wall panels,28 in all.If I can find time this weekend I will be doing some painting in the live area. The glass went in last weekend,it looks nice. The installation guy told me that I was going to have problems with moisture between the panes of glass. I had a bunch of silica jell packs that I tore open and put in the frame, so far so good.

Thanks Glen,

 So far nothing is hooked up and my drums are not here yet.
However I have played my acoustic guitar,electric guitar and bass and have banged on my Slingerland.
 The acoustic guitar sounded great but it did sound a little low in volume. Nothing missing though, Lows,mids and highs all present and sweet.
 I played my Tele through a 66 Ampeg Jet, it was lovely,great bottom end and the mids in my face, again I found myself increasing the volume more than usual.
 The snare was the most pleasing, before the traps the sound bounced all over the room and was very harsh on the ears. Now there is 0 bounce and the decay is almost instant.

I like it Very Happy

What is a good way to test the room?

Thanks.

So, I got an old Tama kit in my studio until my Ludwig arrives.I had a couple friends over, bass player,drummer and another guitar.I broke out the 66 Radio King and warmed up the B-18n.
 The room sounds great, the first thing I noticed was we could still talk to each other while the drums were being played.I have not been using the B-18 because the speaker is either blown or really weak, no problem yesterday, volume at about 10.30 was more than enough lovely fat bass. Everyone could hear everyone and even though there was no PA we were able to sing and still hear ourselves.
 I stepped out of the studio to take a leak and shut the doors and the wife was in the front room happily watching TV Very Happy

So far so good.
