Dampening echoes with slats
June 20, 2021 6:46 PM Subscribe
The library at University of Portland has vertical wooden slats on the walls. I'm told they're to help keep it quiet and minimize echoes. I'd like to make a panel of similar slats for my parents, whose house is new and very echo-prone. Does spacing of the slats matter? Can they be horizontal instead of vertical? Are there other design considerations I should take into account?
