For musicians, proper decay time and frequency balance, use diffusion AND absorption panels. OR absorption+diffusion in one panel. This will give the right balance between ‘alive’ sounding and more ‘dead’ sounding. Most importantly, fix echo, which will in turn fix decay time, as well as cancelations.

We have high ceilings and SO MUCH noise that bounces around our house. I'd like to incorporate acoustic panels but have no idea on how to start. I'd like the panels to enhance the space and not make it look like I'm trying to create a sound studio. Any suggestions about types and placement in spaces like this? Thank you!

@ Rebecca Gross any help would be much appreciated.
