    Haha! You guys are more than welcome to drop by whenever. Maybe while we work on the LS6s, we can put Art to work with mounting my DIY acoustic panels I'm working on :yes:

      I figured I'd keep them simple and cheap for the first go-around. I'm wrapping the entire panel with some nice fabric I found at JoAnn's. Looking for some insulation like Owens Corning 705 right now. Do you know of a local carrier? I can always order it off the internet, but would like to use someone local if possible.

      Here's the trace of one of the LS6s. The panels-in-the-making are in the background.

        I'll check with our guys at work tomorrow on the Owens Corning 705, although if Mark reads this tonight he may know...

        The panels in my room we just used big velcro patches on all four corners and glued them to the wall and the panel, worked pretty easy....mine have no wood in them though, spray enameled the edges to make them more rigid instead of wood framing....

          Cool....thanks much. I'm making these bigger than normal (2'x5'x4"). I guess the owens corning fiberglass will be 2" thick. Gives me some room to work some rope lights into the back of the frames :)

                If you can't find any acoustical material for your panels locally, here's a real good internet source. http://www.atsacoustics.com/cat--Fib...ards--106.html

                I bought the Roxul AFB mineral wool for my DIY corner bass traps, as it is 1/3 the price of OC 705, with very similar performance. Great bang for the buck. They also have Roxul Rockboard if you need more rigid stuff. ATS also has very affordable ready made acoustical panels, with free shipping with a purchase over $300. I bought some of those too last fall and have been pleased.

                    Thanks. I'll keep that site in mind re: the Roxul product.

                      Nhan,

                      See if you can find an commercial building material supplier like this one near me.

                      LINK


                      I just picked up six 2" thick 2'x4' Johns Manville equivalent to the OC 703 panels for a total of $69 for a friend to make some panels this week. I don't think you will need the OC 705, which is more expensive. Good luck and I hope you can keep the sale local.

                        Nhan,

                        There is a place in Plano where I bought my Insul-Shield Product Link sound insulation but only available in 4X100 rolls. The good news is I have a good bit left over so I'll give you a good deal on some of it.

                        I can also help you with taking off your LS feet if you still need help with that.

                        I was going to see if I could come over some night this week to try my new grills on your Mini Strata anyway. I can bring the insulation along.

                        Let me know.

                        Mike

                          Lou I am looking forward to building these panels and hearing how they change the acoustics of my room. Then we can share in this thread our results.

                              Thank you Ray for creating this new thread.

                              Here are some good links to visit and bookmark:

                              When you choose a fabric, please make sure you do the "breathe test" or as Nhan likes to refer to it as, the "blow test." You should be able to breathe normally through the fabric. Your reference would be speaker grill material.

                              Peace and later,
                              Lou

                              PS Nhan, I will take pictures of what Mark and I do this week.
