I was under the impression you didn't need to do the first layer really (other than corner's) and could just do all seams & corners on the second layer?

Well, i had enough caulk in my order from ted to handle doing it that way and still had 1/2 a tube left at the end. maybe because the 12ft sheets left less seams.

Did you order a case of 12?  

 

I haven't tried to figure out how many linear feat I'll need, so, debating the order quantity.

Less then that. But they're the larger tubes. I couldn't recommend ted more, everything he recommended was helpful, prices were the best, and he got all the quantities right

Just an image how I decided to work with my cloth. Used a pool skimmer rod made this little rig to hold it up



And this is my simple method for cutting. Run the scissors along a wire that I twisted around a few screws. Gets me straight and efficient enough to work with panels, as the edges don't much matter

I really like this fabric I'm working with as it's very forgiving and stretchy. A few times I thought I would have ripped it also and it doesn't even show a mark. It's the acousticmac dmd stuff

What Size Are Your Panels, 2x4? DoeS This Leave Much Fabric Left Over?

Was looking at you panel frames. Are they 1x3" with 1x2" around that? Just wondering how/why you built them that way. They do look sturdier than my 1x3" frame. What are they made of?

I am not sure I fully understand... I thought the 1"x3" & 1"x2" are the two layers of materials used to make the frames.   My question is what are the lengths of your frame sizes, are your frames 2 feet wide x 4 feet long, or are they 1 foot x 3 foot and 1 foot x 2 foot?

Going to finish the ceiling today. Carpet coming in about 2 weeks, then i'll finish the wall panels and build the columns to hide the surround speakers.

So with just the ceiling/soffit bass traps it makes an incredible difference that I can hear just playing my g-boom boom box it sounds amazing can't wait to have the rest of the treatment up with some real speakers!

Pics are up there. No difference just filling holes from the nails sanding and painting while I listen to music and it sounds very tight and clear. Carpet goes down in like 2 weeks and then I finish trimming out the wall to wall sound paneling

It's 705FRK. This gives the insulation more effective low end absorption. With help of my brother in law and a mirror, we did peel off the backing from the first reflection points as heard from the main 3. On the sides and wall to ceiling will be unfaced 703 for all the low end absorption I might need, along with the ability to change to frk/remove alltogether if the room is audibly too "dead" after everything is installed. I have 4 mondotraps, 4 2x4 minitraps, and 4 2x2 minitraps for the wall/wall and tri corners, which all also are reflective to higher frequencies.

Can you take more pictures of your ceiling? Some from a distance. I love the way it looks and that was one of the ways I wanted to do my ceiling. I can't make up my mind on what I want to do exactly.

Great job!

Hey. I framed it out with plywood and 2x4 run top and bottom for support. All around with plywood. Then after I stuffed it with fiberglass and 705 frk, I wrapped it in cloth, and took the 1x2 longways, and trimmed the edge with 1x6 boards to hide the edges. Pre painted boards, Filled the nail holes, and painted it again. Between the lighting and the all black room it's hard to get a good picture, but I'll try
