I am in the final stages of converting a 22'x15' room into a dedicated home theater.

Acoustic panels, bass traps, ceiling panels, corner panels- the room will have them all!

Problem 1:

My wife's ONLY request is she wants art placed on the rear wall.

She basically wants to hide 2" foam inside the frame of whatever canvas art piece we purchase. How horrible of an idea is this? How will it effect room acoustics? How 'bout hanging a tapestry over acoustic foam? I have even considered making my own art (using Artsorba canvas). Good idea? Help...


Problem 2:

One of the side "walls" is actually a large sliding glass door.

What would be the best way to treat this area? Custom-made curtain? Heavy curtain? Bass trap near window? Furniture? Panel above sliding door?


Thank you in advance...

Could always do something like this on the back wall:

I just put curtains over my sliding glass doors, but then again, I didn't go all out on acoustic treatments. I only treated behind the screen wall and at the first reflection points.

Auralex also offers some interesting design options. They have a section where you can upload your images. http://www.auralex.com/sonicprint/


The large sliding glass door is another problem, that is for sure. If bricking over the door isn't an option
then heavy curtains might be next. You would want to be sure to address light spilling around the edges of the curtain.
