i live in a two bedroom house, one is very big 12x18 room but it faces a neighbor while the one on the other side is a 10x8 room with no neighbor,

currently in the bigger room, but i want to move to the smaller one so i can crank the amp at night. im afraid louder noises in smaller rooms would be harder on my ear drums.

will there be a difference?

From what I understand and from experience, it'll fill the room up at lower volumes.

There will be a difference. Only you can tell how much volume is too much though. Getting your amp to a good "sweet spot" in tone is what you should be looking for...full blast just for the heck of it while destroying your ears isn't that good of an idea.

Depends on how loud you rock. My main amp doesnt even fill in until it's at a slight scary volume.

It's pretty easy to build very effective acoustic panels using Owens Corning 703. I find that they help a lot in almost all scenarios and are way cheaper than rip-off studio foam. Something like this- http://www.indecentmusic.com/img/blog/piano-room/21.jpg

I use earplugs too.

My amps tend to fill in my bedroom at a really low volume (just under 1/10) and they sound a little harsh, less warm, less round in small rooms. Whenever i play in a larger room, it sounds way better. Playing outside in a large yard is the best sound Ive heard. Room always seems to wreck it for me

Not that much.

It may sound kinda bad though since you'd likely be hearing a lot of reverb and possibly echoes as well.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

cranking at night really never works if you have other people in the area. remember that it is quieter outside and the sound will carry. as for room size it might make a small difference as you will have to be closer to the amp which is harder on your ears. realistically there really isn't any great reason you have to play loud for practice at home. spend some time finding settings that work at lower volumes. sure we all love cranking the amp but it's often not practical.

Hahahaha!

I'll counter with a few stacks on my own.

It's killing me though - this kid can move his stack there in 10 minutes and try it and here he is wasting web space with this question. How hard is it to just try it?

Does a smaller room make it harder on your ears for a guitar amp?

Yes.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Yes. Ears failing and brain exploding due to phase issues of hard walls close by bounce sound around make some things much louder some lower volume sound bad and neighbors attack with pitchforks and torches. Maybe cutting off fingers and even nuts so no progeny.

This for is studio soundproofing but work for loud amp:

The cheapest and easiest way to deaden a room I know of are drapes, the heavier, the better. They work as well as anything and can be picked up for next to nothing at the Salvos. Carpet on the floor and you're done.

if you are lucky, go into a custom seamstress/upholster and ask if you can get the wasted fabric. i had a friend do that. he had it in is garage attacked to his garage door, but he just got a sewing machine and he just stiched everything together. ugly as sin, but it worked pretty good.
