Come on members let’s give some more info on our listening rooms. Kemmler is trying so let’s give him some help.

We're at 95 responses on the form plus a few in the thread, so getting close to 100. I think if any real patterns are going to emerge, we will start to see them with this many responses.I admit I'm unclear as to what use, in any practical terms, this data will be.
if there isn't a reliable pattern, what's the point?
I also think this could help steer speaker manufacturers in the right direction, believe it or not. If they are going on certain assumptions about their typical customers' room sizes that happen to be wrong, their designs will also be wrong. If we can give them data (even indirectly) about the sizes and characteristics of our rooms, then in theory they'll deliver more appealing products over time.
That's a bit aspirational, but I doubt there are many public data sets AT ALL about audiophiles' living spaces.
When I worked for a consumer audio company, I actually attempted to gather such data. It was difficult and I didn't get much that was useful. So in the spirit of ASR driving the industry via metrics and data, perhaps this will be of some use in that sense.
Hey @Ruhled apologies to everyone, I meant to get this done a while back, but got pulled into multiple week-long business trips and have had to spend the remaining free time I had building Elfa closet systems at my new place. As the prevalence of the acronym WAF evinces, we married-man audiophiles value marital harmony.
I will deliver an analysis of our rooms as soon as I get a chance. Thank you for y'alls patience.
That's a classy room.Heyya @kemmler3D glad you had to wait for me!
Data just entered.
I too am skeptical of what might come of the included survey fields. Usually a question like this wants to tease out predictors for something, and that might require more data points than basic dimensions.
The best bit of advice I ever found in one place on how to design an experiment was to envision the graphic(s) needed to convey the [resulting publication’s] intent, and design from there. Analyses all have their particular assumptions, and if any aren’t met due to data set issues, results will be spurious.
All that grime outta the way since someone had to type it, neat idea!!
The obviously-all-purpose room’s 32x16x11’.
Speakers each measure 5” wide and a bit shy of 9’ tall.

Remember what @MattHooper said he wants out of his room’s characteristics?
Same here, except the opposite.
