    I have just built a home theater room in my new house and was wondering if anyone could give me some acoustic recommendations. The room is 12x20 with 12 foot high ceilings. I will have 7.1 surround, with two levels of three seats. I am having it carpeted next week, and have installed drop ceiling panels directly to the rocked ceiling. My question is concering the walls. Should I put some sound absorbing carpeting up the walls from the floor to about 3 or 4 feet high? Or should I just make or purchase some sound panels and somehow strategically place them? Or should I just leave it alone. The walls are just sheetrocked and painted at this point. I have searched these forums for some answers but didn't find much. I know that it is a complicated procedure, but I am just looking for a starting point.

    Thanks

    You want to put some type of absorbing material on the bottom half, maybe halfway up the wall. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong or expand on this.
