The acoustic treatments like those found in the Savoy Theater require about 8" of depth on the side walls and 12" on the rear wall, if that's the direction JPA is leaning vs. a 2" Quest panel, hence...

2 inches of material to go through, plus the 1/8" thickness of the metal leaves you only 3/8" penetration, plus whatever the screw head sinks. The 3" would bottom out only on the spots where you hit...

Low end $20-$25k for everything, with mostly DIY efforts. Mid range would put you between $25-$40k.
