I would guess impaling clips, and maybe with construction adhesive. Start at the top and try and pull one upwards and backwards.


It may also be a fabric stretch?

Actually something like a Vicoustic Multifuser DC2 costs $125, not $450! Plus if you fabric cover you can use even cheaper diffusers like the Auralex Quadfusor or T'Fusor. All work very well, and all...

As for the wainscot I prefer to keep at 30" max, and preferably 26" so you have at least 12" below seated ear height for acoustic treatment.
