    What effects will Knotty Pine for an accent wall have on the sound of the room?

    I am going to be running 5.1 with dipole speakers in the rear. The room size is about 14' x 33' with the back 10' of the room being used as a rec / bar area. The wall that I want to use the pin on is roughtly 7' x 28' and would be the right hand wall of the HT room. I like the rustic / outdoors look that this would add to the room.

    The wall in question is the one with a 19' 6-1/2" dimension on the attached link. The vertical yellow dividing wall is not going to be their.


    Thanks for your advice

    The effect of wood on walls is pretty much the same as drywall. Would lend itself to reflecting alot of the sound. With some mellow speakers, this would not be too much of a problem, but would imagine with horn speakers, this could become too bright. Also with only one wall done this way, could be distracting as well with uneven sound.
