Cheers,
Interesting. Looks a lot like RPG BAD panels.

The cavity was 2" deep. The board was 1". So I assume he had a full on bass trap with plastic over both sheets. A full on hd absorber with no plastic and 2 boards, and finally a hybrid where the plastic was in the middle. This was likely depending on if it was a first reflection point, rear wall, ceiling to wall border... Just guessing

Chuck,

All my 2" panels have plain drywall directly behind them.

Chuck,

Yes they look very similar, however I believe the BAD panels have a perforated board on the front, whereas the Q-Perf uses perforated 1" fiberglass.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up. The only thing to add is that each of the 1" layers making up the 2" thick panels also had different density.
