Hi folks. I am in the almost starting stages of my contractors starting to finish my theater room. Room is 15 x 10. We've been discussing the use of Roxul and I'm being told that is very expensive and blowing my budget. Are there any cheaper alternatives to consider? Thanks.

Cheap pink fiberglass... Search this forum for expert opinions on this, especially from Ted White.

What were you expecting the Roxul to do? Contrary to Mike Holmes it is not soundproofing.

If you're located in Canada, Roxul is pretty much the same price as the pink stuff, therefore no real alternative. If you're in the US, then from what I can tell by reading this forum, the pink stuff is cheaper.

Technically, the fiberglass also has a slight performance edge in the low frequencies.

Funny, I was just up by Toronto for business and drove past a Roxul factory!
