How is rigid foam - like this?
I have some extra 2" boards (thinking I can glue together to make 4") and want to treat my baseboard (where floor and wall intersect) behind the front speakers (also perhaps in a ceiling/wall intersection above the speakers)

I believe that some people are using screws (long), and fender washers... I have also seen some screws and washers made specifically for it but I can't remember where.

That sort of foam has NO acoustic value at all to it. Basically it would be waste of funds. Look for rigid fiberglass or mineral wool. If using foam then you want open celled foam and honestly don't look for it to do wonders. Most of the "real" acoustic foam is to thin or small to be all that effective.

Need OC703 rigid fiberglass in Europe?

If any Northern Europeans are interested in OC703, I have 5 boxes of 2" rigid fiberglass boards for sale in the classified section:

Would using foam over insulation impact the effectiveness of the insulation? I want to do tufted acoustic panels and thought of using foam over the insulation to help keep the rigidity of the tufts.
