What type of insulation behind AT screen?

My first theater... I read somewhere that it is advisable to put Corning 703 on the wall behind the projector screen. I do not have access to rigid and would like to go cheaper. What else can I use and how thick should this stuff be?

Mineral wool is a bit cheaper if you can get it. I generally recommend 2"

Re: What type of insulation behind AT screen?

The only thing I see is Roxul, Safe n Sound, 3" thick. Is this considered Mineral Wool?

Also, thinking about gluing it to the wall with Upholstery Spray, contact cement. What do you think?

I used the Roxul 2" think per Bryan, and it worked out great. I also covered it all with black commando cloth.

OK, great. I picked up the 3" stuff today, that's all they carried. I'll need to find some black cloth, I'll check the local fabric shops.

That can work but Duvytene is like a black hole. That's what pro's use for photography.
