  • Picture panels

    Was telling my wife that I'm going to need some sound absorption panels for the basement theater, and told her I can make them... She said that she would like the fabric covering them to be pictures of the family. Has anyone out there done anything like this? Is this possible? She was saying black and white family pics would be cool and I kinda/sorta agree.

    Get this place out. I brought cotton panels from them a few years back and had no issues. They can customize the panels with a supplied picture plus the panel are made with cotton not rock wool or fiberglass.

      GIK is now offering photos on their panels as well.

      I've been really happy with my regular GIK panels, and these would be a nice way to have more WAF, but they are pretty pricey.

        This is EXACTLY what I'm looking to do only DIY. I'm thinking I can find a local place that can make a fabric type of cover from a picture I hand them and some dimensions to go over some cheapo DIY panels... FTW.
        We'll see. Thanks for the link, that looks good.

          That's the kind of thing I wanted 4+ years ago and couldn't find anywhere.

          I ended up doing some iron-on transfers of movie posters with a couple panels - basic avery iron-on transfers for ink jet printers, movie poster art found online, and a cheap sheet from Sears. The iron-on's are 8-1/2 by 11 - so multiple images per panel.

          I had some pics in the gallery at av123forum - but unless I'm blind, it looks like the gallery isn't working.

          Anyway - another "custom" option and definitely low-cost.

            Let me know how you make out. I also really like the idea of cotton sound treatments.

              Will do... I'm hoping they turn out cool and tie the room together whilst impacting thy soundage.

                  Something like this might work into a diy option. Don't know what your objectives are or the finished materials compatibility with that objective.

                  I could do a lot of things if I had some money.

                    Good stuff, guys. I'm doing a couple of DIY panels myself. Due to cost/time, I elected to go with some relatively expensive fabric from JoAnn's ($25/yard minus the 50% coupon :D). These artsy frames may be good options to go with in the future (although most are limited to 2'x4'x2", as opposed to larger sizes that I need for my LS6s - 2'x5'x4"). I thought about doing the art work myself, but didn't want to get too carried away with thinking about which fabric/paint combo would be the best for acoustics, what would be a nice picture to paint, etc. Alright, so I chickened out :D
