Would this work as a baffle wall?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi! I noticed this video on Youtube, showing a wall with openings for speakers, and filled with insulation, but without any rigid covering the outside. Fast forward to about 2:30 to see how it looks.
Very simple to build, but would it have any effect as a baffle wall (improve imaging etc..)?

the wood frame is an overly complicated way of building shelving for Proscella speakers.

Putting absorptive material on the wall is standard in most acoustical treatment plans and should help sound clarity.
I believe those speakers are designed to be mounted in or on the wall. they come from with simple wall mount brackets. It is unclear why he didn't just use those, I guess he wanted a method of mounting those surrounding fabric panels and avoid drilling holes in the wall for the brackets.

But what is up with that wrinkly a$$ screen in a setup with over $6k in speakers?

Thanks!
Don`t know why he didn`t put more effort in mounting the screen properly. He represent a Norwegian shop that participate in developing this screen material, and they also have proper screen frames. It is a fine weave AT-fabric.

But I notice that most people cover their baffle wall with eg. plasterboard? I think this must be something completely different than just put some insulation into it?

Here is a white paper from Procella that has some information on baffle wall construction. It has some good info in it.

Thanks! Yes, much good info there. Still, I`m not sure if I`ll stuff some rigid fibreglass into the speakerframe, or cover the frame with eg. gypsum board. it seems that I`d get some effect of the baffle wall by just wall mount the speakers, and put up insulation on the wall. But my frame is standing about 1` from the wall.

+1

Also wondered why the gaping holes in the drywall behind the speakers? Do the backs of the Procellas protrude perhaps?

Not sure what the apparent pull down screen above is for too. Maybe if I spoke the language...

The masking is nice though.
