This "big cloud" you are building how large is it? Mine were 2 ft x 13-ish feet both.
Do you have some design already, and materials bought just waiting for time to do it?
So my big cloud was/is looking to be about 10' x 2' - I actually might make it a bit larger to catch all the 1st reflections...as you can see this tool shows I am right at 2 ft, actually a bit over.
I am using your design :-) m 1 x 4 x 10'. I have 3" thick roxul safe and sound and will hang 4" or so off the ceiling.
My cove is about 12 ft and I have crown (not installed yet) so I think any wider than 10' would look strange.
My second row is wacky, in my room it is most likely bouncing off the face of my soffit...assuming it goes back down, etc...I am not sure what I can do with that. The software has no ability to show this cove, so what this picture shows is not super accurate for 2nd row. First row is inside the cove, so all good.
If you have suggestions, suggest away !
