Thanks, I will be heading to Lowe’s to buy enough lumber to finish the other panels.

Auralex has free room analysis software on there site. It will tell you where to place the panels. It is under the support drop down menu.

Safe and sound insulation 

 

Excellent stuff for this application. Each of my bass traps is a full bundle of ROXUL Safe and Sound still in the shrink wrap, covered with matte black fabric. A little bit heavy, but all in the interest of good acoustics!
