No, that isn't how this is used. It is used on the outside of drywall to help with acoustics.

Here is the thread on making the fabric frames

I double checked and it was the standard 4' x 100' x 1", so obviously that isn't a good choice. Just wondering if I need to keep looking, or revise my budget for the insulation.

I paid $182 1" x 48" 100' plus $30 to ship. This was three years ago. The shipping was from L.A. to Rancho cucamonga about 30 miles.

Hello scaesare,
Can you let us know where you bought your Linacoustic?

Thanks,

Thank you BigMouth.
I suppose I can call and order from them to have it delivered to CA. I wonder if anyone from Northern CA would know of a local distributor with fair pricing.

Thanks,
J.

BigMouthinDC - Great Job man... that's beautiful. Do you have any more details or pics to share? I'm getting to that point in the planning process where I need to figure out how I'm going to do the stage/stagewall.

Fyi, I'm picking up a roll of 1.5" ductliner tonight. 48" x 100 ft. I found it on Craigslist for $60... but they accepted my offer of $50. I knew I was getting a good deal as they said they paid over $150 for it. Anything much more than $150 seems like you are not dealing with the right dealer.

There is a solution to every problem.

There are cheaper alternatives, check with your local HVAC supplier.

Thanks. Does anyone know how this happens? Somehow, something is adding malicious code to some of my pages. I bring them down every now and then and strip it back out, but then it comes back sometime later.

It can be the company you are hosting with or your site. If your site or another site at the hosting company has been compromised through SQL injection, FTP breaking etc... all sites at that hosting company may be infected.

One way is the man in the middle. This is where the hacker breaks into the hosting company network/machines and taken over the DNS server and or other servers. Then the hacker intercepts all HTTP request and injects the harmful code into the HTML page. Most of the time the bad code will ether re-direct the traffic and/or down load malware with some javascript..

I don't know how but something added a virus to my website pages. I've completely re-built them and updated my sig link so try again and see if its okay. You may have to do a shift-refresh if you've been to my site before as it may be cached...

So just to make this clear in my head for Linacoustic to be effective it needs to be on the drywall side facing in? So if you had a screenwall that backed to an unfinished area putting Linacoustic between the studs behind the drywall (on the unfinished side) does no good?

What should you put if you are adding a wall? I figured I'd add linacoustic inside the wall to cut sound transmission.

Waste of higher priced fiberglass. Fill the wall cavity with ordinary fluffy batt insulation.

Thanks, so am I correct in that Linacoustic would need to be attached to the same surface as your screen (or behind your screen only if it's a false wall with an AT screen)?

So a standard screen wall should be the screen surrounded by Linacoustic covered in an acoustically transparent cloth?

I was quoted pre roll of 4x100' 1" for $195, OC703 4x8 1" unfaced for $0.48 psf.

I saw people covered screen wall with either Linacustic or OC703, which one is better? 1" or 2"?
