Actually, it "recesses" the outside edge in my case. You wouldn't want to do that with a movie poster style image. My images are custom "artwork" that is more abstract, so the beveled edge doesn't matter.

You could use a router to bevel the INSIDE of the frame which would recess the inside and thus the outside part of the frame would be the only part touching the fabric, but honestly, at that point it would probably be easier to actually just add some quarter round wood or something than it would be to use the router on the inside, especially for those that may not have a router.

That is some crazy "tall" molding added to the front of the frame. Same idea I would think as what was being talked about though.

You know what your photo makes me thing of? Making a TRIPLE purpose panel...

Purpose #1 : To add some design element to a room, whether movie poster or other printable design.
Purpose #2: To improve the acoustical characteristics in a room.
and new
Purpose #3: To make the element from #1 backlit with some LED lighting.

Seriously. You have enough space to put in some backlighting. The challenge would be to have it bright enough to be lit, but not so bright that the image looks washed out (which is why real movie posters are printed on both sides)...

Could be cool...

That's another frame behind there, it's not that deep.

It's just 1/4 round on top of 1x2 poplar. My panels are more non-reflective decoration than sound panels. I placed Linacoustic in the recess created by the 1/4 round and that's it.

Has anyone had success buying faced Roxul and pealing the facing off?

I think I've seen talk about that somewhere in the forum, but can't find it.

I've found a local supplier that has faced Roxul ProRox SL 940 (which used to be called RHT 60). Is that the same of Rockboard 60? According to this http://www.bobgolds.com/AbsorptionCoefficients.htm it looks to be pretty close to OC703. I could also get unfaced RHT 80.

After going back several pages in the thread I realized that I should have changed the JPG names to something different. Not sure what to do at this point. Maybe try myfabricsigns.com and of course change the names this time? Any thoughts?

I have used myfabricdesign and fabricondemand. No issues with either one. myfabricdesign usually has coupons that make it a little cheaper.

Hey guys is "Modern Jersey" the go to fabric from myfabricdesigns? I also noticed "Performance Knit", would this be identical to the PK from Spoonflower?

Thanks

You could try contacting the trademark owners and asking permission. As long as you aren't producing and selling them, and only plan on using it in your own personal theater, I can't imagine the studios would have an issue with you using it. And then you can forward their email onto the printer proving that you have permission to use it.

Worth a shot. Or just find a printer that doesn't care I guess. :P

Hoping myfabricdesigns works out. Waiting for them to ship me fabric samples. Did you end up going with Modern Jersey for your prints?

I used their basic cotton, very breathable, picture was good but not as sharp as PK from spoonflower.

Okay I see the pics in your sig. Which ones are basic cotton? Curious why you went with that instead of Modern Jersey. If I'm not mistaken, I believe some on this thread said it was very similar to PK from spoonflower.

THe monster inc is basic cotton. I was looking for a non stretchy material. When you have detailed work to align and set up correctly the stretchy material is a pain to work with.

This thread has been a terrific resource, and I'm almost ready to give these panels a go ... but I have a question about the copyright issues at Spoonflower.

Has anyone tried adding filters to movie images? I was originally going to take a handful of stills and add various things like old film grain, black & white, or even like a cartoon painting-like effect.

Ultimately I'm prepared to go in a different direction, but was curious if anyone had gone that route, or something along those lines?

Question regarding hanging the panels

Question regarding hanging the panels.
I built panels out of 1 X 4" MDF boards. Filled with 2" JM814 insulation. So when the frame/panel is hung there will be 2" gap between the insulation and the wall. Is the good enough or should I leave more space between the frame and the wall or the existing 2" gap between the insulation and the wall?

There is a point of diminishing returns, but a 2" gap is a nice sweet spot for a panel with 2" of insulation. More is better, but I wouldn't get worked up about working it up to anything more than that.

On a related note, I used 1x4 poplar which is really .75" x 3.5". Once I put in a 2" sheet of OC703 in my case, I "only" had a 1.5" air gap. It still outperforms no air gap at all by quite a bit, and I am not concerned at all about wanting more.

FYI, trying to illustrate the Air-gap idea, I do like the below pic.

Also, following up on "myfabricdesigns", which fabric did you all ending up with? What are your thoughts?

My room is 13' wide, so I don't want to take up much space by making these panels too deep. I was thinking about using 1"x2" pine boards from Lowes to make the frames. I'd then add on some quarter round as suggested, which would take the .75" thick boards get the total thickness of the frame up to 1.25". Is there anything wrong with this compared to ripping 2x4 boards like the original post mentioned?

Also, I can see that a lot has changed since this thread was posted. Rather than read all nearly 100 pages, what is seen as the best printing service to use and on what kind of cloth?

1.25" is really thin for doing acoustical panels. 2" should be the target *minimum*... 4" (or 2" plus a 2" air gap) is a performance sweet spot for absorption.

At 1.25" thick means 1" thick acoustical insulation, and you are only going to be treating the upper frequencies. You will still have a lot of sound energy in the mid-range frequencies (where most audio energy is) that will be untreated.

That said, your construction idea is valid, just awfully thin if you want to really enjoy the efforts of making panels.

Ok point taken. I just worry about it looking odd with something sticking out 2 inches from the wall. Can someone post a picture of how that looks? Do you just make the fabric big enough to wrap around and have it visible on the sides?

Thanks, do you have any pictures from further back with a wider view?

I have another question about the number/side of my panels. My room is roughly 20'x13'x8', and I was planning on having 5 18"x3' panels, and 1 2'x3' panel in various parts of the room. Will that have enough size/volume (assuming 2" deep) to make an impact on the room?
