Took me and the wife a day on the weekend but looked very natural when done. The one bad thing is that we rarely charge them up and wouldn't want to leave UV lights on during a movie. With the fiber optic we could leave it on during the movie without it becominga distraction . Yeah around my front of my baffle wall I used black velvet so that was the plan if I went optic. How did you go about building your panels and what was your cost to area covered. Mine would be around 14 by 20.

The panels were construction styrofoam and Felt. I did try velvet at first but it was not the easiest to poke hole through. IUt was a little tough to work with in that way. The Styrofoam, felt, 3m spray glue, cost maybe 500$ CDN in total. My area was 6.5 x 20. So 5 panels, worked out perfect with 1.5 feet cut off one end. In your case, for OCD sake, I'd do two 7 x 4 panels per run, with 5 runs. So 10 pieces (assuming 4 x 8) of Styrofoam/wood/drywall etc total.
I'd FULLY recommend the stuff like I have with the foil backing if you go with the styrofoam, It's MUCH more ridged than the non backed. Even the blue or pink outside wall stuff would be awesome and ridged. Your prices will be way lower than mine assuming you are in the US, since my materials are close to double the cost.
