For a 2" acoustic treatment wall i think that is what I would do. First add furring strips to the wall to create a 1" gap to be filled with rigid fiberglass or poly filler. Then the Fabric Frame would attach to the furring strips (glue, brads, or velcro) and create the final 1" for a total 2" acoustic treatment.
I think I am going this way as far as the furring strips are concerned to create my necessary gap.
Using the mdf strps to support the weight looks like a great idea too.
And at this point the velcro method seems very simple and easily removed. I don't know of a reason not to use it. If someone else does then please let me know.
Important question here. Is there any type of wood I should stay away from for making both the furring strips or the panels? mdf, osb, 2x4's, 2x2's.........I have left overs of all of these materials at the moment. I would imagine you want something straight but of course we have a table saw so we can make straight cuts.
Any considerations for ease of putting the staples into the wood? Or how a material may be prone to bowing? I would think the osb if not oriented properly may not be sufficient but I don't know. I don't mind making cross bracing in order to make a material work.
