Did you find a local source for the OC703? I'd like to do some panels for my room at some point in the future, and wasn't sure where to look locally for the materials.
Keep up the good work!
Thx, the HT its a work in progress, and with winter here I'm trying to get the acoustics done by Feb-end, 3 more weeks...
Our log home built 2001-2002 by M59/US23 area, I know the log home you are refering to, I go by those on my way to Brighton Rec area for MTB riding.
If 2-3 people did a group buy then Home Depot might make sense for OC703/OC705,
but for individual buying ats acosutics is decent price and very convient (I used them)
other online place or local HVAC - they are there I just don't know them, good luck.
added acoustic changes for screen
This past weekend continuing with improving the HT acoustics, I put (6) sheets of 2" thick 2' x 4' Roxul Rockboard on my screen to make is a "dead zone" instead of a resonance/reflection zone.
Quote: This is a case of 6 pieces of 24 x 48 x 2 inch Rockboard 60 manufactured by Roxul. It is rigid mineral wool board similar to Owens Corning 705 at a density of 6 pounds per cubic foot.
I used Roxul Rockboard instead of OC705 because I am NOT going to cover it, so did not want itchy stuff.
This was on my "to do" list for almost 2 years.....finally did it this weekend.
This is on back of my DIY screen, there is a controlled 3/4" gap to the screen via the metal plates I added for supporting, secured the panels by suspended ceiling 14ga wire.
Final product done and secured, the outside portion has (2) 2" thick 2 ' x 4'pieces fitting, the inside 1 due to screen curve allows more on outside.
It's also with about a 3" air gap to the wall now.
screen hung, btw It's also 50 lbs heavier.....my wife complained I'm "slaving her" with all this heavy lifting.:
(that's my acoustic cloud I'm making just today, i was not there when I did the Audyessy re-run)
I immediately could tell improved bass, I've not taken REW plots yet, but I did re-run my Audyessy and it shows how its EQ is applied, look at the before/after for the center channel!
Yes, I was very careful about having my mic in repeatable positions as well for before/after check..
