Soundproofing behind false wall

Was thinking about adding a layer or two of this on the front wall behind my speakers...

Anybody tried it? Thoughts?

Thanks,

Pat

Forgot to mention that the room is already finished, no possibility of putting something in the walls.

The answer is always more Sheetrock and GG. It's almost always more effective then whatever sound board for the price. Make sure it's not that "40% lighter" stuff

Thanks, but I'm thinking of a less permanent solution. Something I can just rest on the floor or attach with a few screws and pieces of furring strips

I'm no sound expert, but if you are talking about soundproofing... doing only the front wall of your theater will not soundproof it in any significant way. If you are talking about reducing the acoustical reflections from your front speakers off the front wall, then yes, that may work. I'm planning on lining my front wall with 1" linacoustic (http://www.fabricmate.com/cores-linacoustic.php) although this would be a bit more permanent than what you are probably wanting. I think most people use a double layer of linacoustic or something like OC703.

Thanks, I meant reflection... Would love to get my hands on some linacoustic, but I can't find a supplier anywhere in Montreal.
