Acoustics and Projector for $1500? - Page 2

post #31 of 35
Thread Starter 
For now, I think I can do okay with 3 inch material. That should put me within my budget, as I was planning to make a wooden frame anyway. Looking around, though, it seems that Roxul is the best price/performance choice out there. Is it possible to get that in Canada?

Roxul manufactures Safe'n'Sound. Were you referring to the fire batts?

It shouldn't be too hard to locate in Canada. You should also be able to call Roxul and locate a dealer in your area if you can't find one.

I meant the fiberglass panels (Rockboard 80), and yes, theres a lowes just across the street that has safe n sound.

This seems to be a good price for the Safe n' Sound. I'm not too sure about all the specs, but it appears that it is 3" material and can make me 12 panels. Are my assumptions correct? This will free up a lot of my budget then.

The reason that pack is cheaper than the 8 pack is because they are 16" instead of 23". They are the same amount material in either pack (square/cube footage is the same).

If you plan to straddle corners, 24" wide would be much better than 16" (16" also likely needs to be two panels wide for a decent size sweet spot in relation to your first reflection treatment). Plus, you would need more wood & fabric for the same surface area of absorption. I would definitely go with the 24-inch batt packs. The 16" packs can be easily used to build thick corner traps if you so wished.
