DIY bass trap advise

Will this stuff work for a 24" corner bass trap. I was planning on 8" to 10" thick with a 2" to 4" air gap behind. They will be floor to ceiling.

Sorry if the pics didn't come out well. It is 4" mineral wool insulation. I can't find 703 or 705 anywhere in kc.

Should I just buy them from gik? I heard heard mixed reviews about the diy traps. I am willing to give it a try but if it is a waste of time...well...you know.

Bryan will shoot straight with you about your needs. You can PM him or call him & discuss your needs. He has some really great solutions. It will help if you can measure your room with REW first. That will give him real data to work with.
