  • Thank you for the inspiration! I tried to follow a made a few triangles. The worst thing was to get all the components from e-shop(s). I also decided to go for triangles with length of a=500 mm so I need to additionally cut ALU profiles. Also facing was kind of tricky for me, but the more I created the more I was skilled. Thank you again!

  • I like the idea of triangles. However, your corners are not sharp enough for my taste. Also, you are using the wrong absorption material. Foam and plain Rock Wool will not absorb as deep as high-density rock wool. You can buy this as near-solid sheets from both Rock Wool and Isover. Rockfon (not cheap) also sells these and they have acoustics graphs so you can see the performance. You can also add a little space behind the absorbers - it will let them absorb deeper frequencies.

  • Leaving an air gap btw. the panel and the wall would vastly increase LF absorbtion performance. Because of refraction and also getting quite more absorbing surface

  • It needs to be said that you can go over board by putting up to much and completely killing any liveliness that your room may have, so don't put up to much you just want to tame the amount of reverberation in the room and not completely kill it. Nice vid as usual.

  • I wanted to be able to experiment easily for the space I was working in. So, I used bed sheets (clean and washed) to spray glue the foam "v" squares onto the sheets. Then I mounted the sheets with the attached foam squares on the walls around the space. I believe it helped quite a bit because they also have a little space between the foam and the walls to catch the sound passing through twice as several have mentioned here.

  • Thanks for this! I had to make a quick sound studio at home for my daughter who needed to record video audition songs for music school. I didn't have time for this type of project. But, now that we are done I can go back and make several of these panels to replace the not very pretty standard foam "v" shaped squares I used. Have a great day!

  • Why even start with aluminium framing? You could make an easier frame with cut plywood. Frankly, why do you even need to bother with the frame in the first place? Surely you can just cut some rockwool or foam, stick some long nails on each end, then cover it in fabric. You should be able to attach them to the wall with the same effectiveness. Use a hollow rod and a washer even to get right distance. Is it all because you just want really sharp corners on triangles?
