Deciding on acoustic foam

Post by misteron » Mon Dec 22, 2008 1:55 am

Choosing between 4 pieces of this or 8 pieces of this.
Either would cover about the same area.

My aim is to absorb as much freqs as poss, knowing that I will need bass traps to get right to the bottom end.

Which would be better?

If I give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that Deadhookers are some brand of acoustc foam, will I be horrifically disappointed by the google results?

rigid rockwool (fiberglass) panels have a greater freq absorbtion than way overpriced acoustic foam. For the same price as a few panels you can treat a whole room and it works better.

The down side is you have to cover them with fabric (DIY).

Yweah look for a mineral fiber board/rockwool reseller in your area, or someone who makes panels. (RIGID FIBERGLASS)

You don't want to spend more than $60 per 2'x4'x4" panel.
