I can't believe how big of a difference having wood floors in my room makes for the speakers on my computer, the sound is so much more clear now!  I mean, some difference is expected from carpet, but not this noticable...dang

 

Okay that's it, talk about sound systems if you want, this thread really doesn't have much of a point and I probably wouldn't have posted about it except I live in the music section of our dorms (even though I'm an English major) and I've been getting bombarded with music stuff lately, namely stuff about speakers and amps.

Your argument is like a two legged dog with an eating disorder...weak and unbalanced.

    the fabric carpet absorbs sound waves and reduces echos (i forgot how to spell that). thats why some music recording rooms have foam on the walls to reduce echoing.

    That doesn't explain why it sounds better with the wood flooring, that explanation is actually opposite of the effect i've experienced

    Sucks that you're in a dorm. On a side note, the university was charging me for a room in the dorms and I had to chew out the housing supervisor to get my money back.

    Back on track, currently listening to: Godspeed You Black Emperor - Antennas to Heaven. Download it and love it.

     

    EDIT: I guess my sig would clue you in anyway.

    I actually love dorm life, being able to just do whatever I want and have friends living near me is cool...currently listening to Weak and Powerless, by APC.

    I didn't like my co-ed dorms.  I got athletes foot.  Also all the girls would always bring thier boyfriends over, so they were taken.
