I will soon get a grand piano that will go in a L-shaped room. In Fine's book about the optimal position of a piano in a room, he briefly mentions that a L-shaped room can optimize the bass response without explaining much about how to achieve that.
I was wondering if anyone could have an idea just from drawings what could be the best angle (choices 1 to 4 on the picture) for the piano to get an optimal sound, especially for the bass. Maybe someone here knows, for example, that bass waves tend to come out of the piano in a certain direction, etc.
On the drawing, blue indicates outside walls, and since they get cold in winter I will keep the piano close to the interior walls (in grey).
Thanks in advance !
I think you'll find placement makes no difference at all in the sound of the bass. The wavelength is so long compared to the room's dimensions that any placement is effectively the same.
