Hey guys ive been browsing this forum for a while and love all the help and feedback you guys have given to others.
I have been working on my home theatre for quite some time, and now realized that I need some proper acoustic panel treatment. My room now sounds really hollow and echoey. Im a student currently and my budget is not that great, im looking to spend anywhere less than $300. I know that may not be much money to do the best of the best treatment but im looking for something that is cheap and rather effective. I know i can build some panels on my own but i do not have the skills or tools required to build them.
Im from Canada and i believe the cheapest foam i have found comes from http://canada.foambymail.com/AW2/aco...edge-foam.html . If I buy two packs would this be enough for my room? The room itself is 13ft by 26ft. My speakers barely fit next to the screen so there is only 12" gaps on either side to fit foam. Also, how would i go about placing the foam on the walls? I have heard of the mirror method but not to familiar with it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
To hang them I used Hercules hooks, Google them. I placed two our towards the far edges of each panel and then pierced the foam down onto the hooks. There are many ways to do it, you could use a high quality spray glue to just glue them to the walls but that would ruin your walls. Another good way would be take two old cds and glue them to each panel and then use tacks to hang them.
