    Bass below 80Hz ish is difficult to localise, but we are well off topic.
    If you placed too much absorbent material then there is a chance that the higher frequencies could be over damped , foam/soft furnishings won’t affect bass response.
    In terms of reverberation ideally I believe all frequencies would decay at the same rate, usually it is high bass peaks which are the major issue.

    Horn-loaded mid and high frequencies will have narrower dispersion and lower power levels at the first reflection points...no need for a rug...although it would certainly tie the room together.

    With low frequencies the issue is more about the reflections causing peaks and nulls in the response. Placing a couple of 7-inch deep broadband absorbers in the middle of my floor helped to smooth out my low frequency response... not very practical though!

    BTW: The Bass from my Odeon No. 28 SE (prototype) is horn loaded/ported mix.

    Odeon’s are pretty decent imho, I prefer front loaded bass but that soon becomes pretty ridiculous.

    How about converting the twin washer/dryers into subs? :D

    Love the windows BTW!

    yes, even decay at all FR is the goal.

    if one knows what he's doing, very easy to not place too much absorbent material and over damp their room, but still target the detrimental early reflections.

    I never was tidy . I'm taking that trait to the grave :) I could rip the whole 640 of 'em to HDD , but I'd have nothing to stumble over in the dark ...........

    @Ayya Khema : Thank you. No it is from Odeon Audio from Germany, you can buy it (even if it is not listed at the Odeon homepage). It is the follower for the 28.3 and called 28.SE.

    This was a prototype design (I know the company owner) which he sold me, the 28.SE has kept the same design style close to the predecessor No 28.3 which is more refined.

    By comparison to some of the wonderfully diverse systems on here, mine seems pretty dull, but it works for me.

    Marchbanks Golly, do I ever have a lot of soul!

    Obviously a rock chick in the making. I can almost picture her pulling one of her bottles of champagne(?) from behind the cuddly - er - thing and taking a swig, then picking up her white bass and practising another thundering riff. I assume the pink goods are there to act as substitute monitor stacks for her to jump off.

    Good to see the Arkenhoff ‘two rugs’ system in use.

    Not a very PC toy selection there for a 2YO girl in today's world, shouldn't it be for boys only these days?

    @Hungry Halibut : I really like your system and don't find it dull, quite the opposite.

    @Hungry Halibut I'm by no means a Naim fan but they got something very right with the SL2
