Yeah the air gap will be at least that and most likely 1.5-2”

I used the rockwool r80.

why with that, thats used for exterior insulation?

(COMFORTBOARD™ 80 is an exterior non-structural insulation sheathing that provides a continuous layer of insulation around the residential building envelope.)

Hey guys, looking to build a few of these panels, so cool!

Any updates I should be aware of since the original post? The material doesn't look like it's available anymore, what is everyone using? Interested in reducing reflections off concrete and drywall walls.

Frame construction still the same or is there a new preferred method?

Insulation preferences?

Thanks!

If you want to use any movie poster style or images with characters on them, then you should go to MyFabricDesigns and look at their Basic Combed Cotton.
If not, you also have the choice of Spoonflower and using Silky Faille (their Performance Knit that was so good is no longer available, but this is still great fabric for quality).

Frames are pretty much the same as always.

I am still partial to the tried and true OC703, but there are other choices out there that work very similarly.

I wasn't able to buy anything locally when I did my acoustical treatments over the years, so I had to buy online. I picked ATS Acoustics, but I am sure that there are others. They do have a list of the products that they sell and let you compare them to OC703.

ATS Acoustics Insulation Comparison


Best bang for your buck is 2" of rigid insulation and then put an air gap between the insulation and the wall. So if you used a frame that was 2" thick, you would put the insulation at the front face of the panel (closest to the fabric) and automatically have a 2" air gap between it and the wall. Studies and tests were done years ago that show a 2" sheet of OC703 plus a 2" air gap behind it performs almost as well as a 4" sheet of OC703, but for half the cost (since the air is free).

A while back someone posted a good graphic on how they mounted the image to the frames. If you have this quick or know where it is can you repost a link to it. Thanks!!

You can also look at sites and videos for how to stretch a canvas as it is the same process.

One site on how to stretch canvas


Here is an example of the stapling order you should follow.

Am I doing this correctly? Yes, I am ok with not having black bars on the sides, I'd want the image to crap around the frame (3' width x 2' height).

You have an image that is 2' tall, but 54 (or more) inches wide instead of 36"

6" border on the top and bottom.

You should crop the original image to 36" wide and try again. Then you will get the image size that you want.

If you leave it as is, you will end up losing a LOT of the picture itself depending on where it wraps around the back.

Actually, remeasuring things, I want the panel to be 42" wide. I do want the image to wrap around the sides so they are not black. So I'll have 6 inches on each side, and assuming frame is 2-3" thick, it'll be about 3" of the image wrapped back (vs black if I cropped it).

Does that make sense?

Latest coupon for MyfabricDesigns
15% off using 15clover at checkout.

Strange thing is that the wording states that it is 15% off until JANUARY 25th, which either is a typo or I've somehow woken up this morning a month in the past. LOL

Most likely is until February 25th, but could be longer.

Finally got my MFD prints. They look pretty good, although black isn't super black. We will see how they look on the wall in the end.

I washed and sprayed with wrinkle release and ironed. They are still a little wobbly. Should I hit with the iron again right before I staple? Or just wrinkle releaser?

Any do's or dont's before I fire my first staple? I'm going to pick up a powered model from Ryobi, any particulars I should be aware of (staple size, etc?)

For the record, I debated on doing the back first so I could hide the white backer fabric. But I realized that would be stupid because I would have to load the insulation and fight it the rest of the time. Instead I could do it at the end and just carefully trim the fabric.

Anyway, can't think of any other questions yet. We will see tomorrow. I'm going to start with four album covers, as I noticed my saw was a bit crooked when I went to make the movie poster frames. Long story short, haven't finished them yet.

Thanks Nick (and others) for keeping this going.

Lost my response somehow so here we go again:

I remembered my question. I've got some light and white colored prints. Is it customary to paint the frames under these? If so what color? Should even the black print frames be painted? Would a piece of fabric (white or dark) be a better choice? Certainly more expensive tho.

I don't know how big of a deal it will be when it is all said and done, it may not be very noticeable in the theater.

Also, what color do you reccomend starting with, white, light, or dark? In order to "hide the crimes" as it were.

Bought a 5/8ths narrow crown stapler, and a bunch of 1/4 staples.

No need to paint under darker colors. Heck, even off white starts to become hard to see the frame, it is just the stark white that is the worst.

If you paint them, find a paint as close to the color of the white as possible. Or cover in a cheap extra layer of white or any other light color. The idea is to make the print be against a solid and uniform color, which is why the frame normally stands out.

Follow the stapling guide picture that I posted a few comments ago, and you should be good. I am a firm believer in getting as must of the wrinkles and creases out as possible first, and then when you go to stretch and staple it, hit it with more wrinkle release spray.

I did the backing fabric first for mine, then put the insulation inside towards the front, then wrapped with the print and stapled. There is usually enough give in the backer fabric to make any needed outward adjustments and of course you can press against the front image to push it back in if needed, but really it shouldn't matter which way you go.

Just go for it.

Since I did a few panels this week-end, and I remember to take some pics, here are some quick visual guide.

Set the middle of your frame as well as your print when you assemble them.
Start with the middle of each sides as explained a few time before.

What fabric did you use again? Looking at your images from your 1099 thread, it seems like either the frames were noticeably smaller than the front facing image, or there is a lot of stretch in the fabric as part of it wrapped around your sides.... Even the corner marks I added aren't in the corners.

You can see the corner mark and then what looks like the top (shown on the right side) wrapping around the side on this image.


And down the side of this one:


Any insight in how the fabric is currently coming and any adjustments needed would be helpful in making adjustments for the next person. Those look like they are 0.5 - 1.0 inches to tall and wide overall due to stretch or difference in frame size to image size.

Or I was just off horizontally 1/4”. Lol. Yeah the image is slightly off center. Chalk it up to inexperience. The guide marks were in the ballpark within 1/8” allaround. When I put the next one together I will take some pics. IMO the measurements were close. But realistically the frames could be slightly smaller too, maybe 1/16th of an inch. 1/8” max.

The fabric I used is whatever is recommended on this sight, sorry, off the top of my head I don’t recall.. the fabric on the back did stretch and the fabric with the image did not stretch per se other than to remove the creases.

There are zero creases the process worked incredibly well. So what did you think of the finished product. I am extremely happy.

I like the crisp corner work. Nice job. So many people get sloppy in the corners.

Overall it looks great too!

Posters finally up

Big thanks to @nickbuol for all the help with the images. Finally doing the finishing touches on my theater.

Info on my posters:

Size: 24"x36" & 36"x24"
Frame Depth: ~2.5"
Insulation: Rockboard
Hanging Type: French cleat (cut from 2x4)
Fabric: Basic Combed Cotton

Notes: I have stretched canvas frames before, including my 121" inch screen, but had some issues getting all the creases out of these. Probably should have done a better job ironing prior to putting them up. I ended up having to pull some staples and re-stretch some sections, they look okay now but I may tighten them up some more.

Do you guys know of any places that sells them already completed. I am hoping to find some star wars options. TIA.

With moving, military, full time job, and school just dont have the time to make one myself.

Several places sell them. I just did a quick google search for custom image acoustic panels and found some. The few at the top were www.audimute.com, www.acousticalsolutions.com, www.atsacoustics.com. I've bought my acoustical insulation from ATS Acoustics, but otherwise have no personal experience with any of them.

A 24" x 36" x 2" panel will run around $200 or a bit more plus shipping.

About $45 in materials plus the 60-90 minutes for someone not familiar with the (simple) process to assemble or $200+ from one of them, or maybe someone here will make you some with an even better depth of 3-4" even if just 2" of insulation (you know who you are... ) Not sure what they charge though.

Poor NickB... Every time my last name is spelled wrong, he gets a PM or a Mention alert....

So if you sent something to "NickBoul" it went to the wrong guy. (Since there is no NickBoul, AVS Forums just stops when it can't find a match, so that is at NickB...)

Resend it to me, "NickBuol" and I can respond.
