I would go with this method that is similar to GIK panels where you create a cavity with a wood frame that helps with bass trapping and allows for easily hanging panels like a picture frame.

You could also try Ready Bags which is fabric already sewn to hold 2 x 4 acoustic panels. They have mounts that will give a gap, but they seem kind of expensive and cumbersome.

I'll assume you've seen the ATS mounting kits as well, but just in case.

Bought a bunch of raw materials for some DIY sound panels and bass traps.

Got two 6 packs of these...

and a 6 pack of these...
http://www.atsacoustics.com/item--AT...oard--AB2.html

some of this stuff in sandshape circles to cover them...
http://www.atsacoustics.com/item--De...--DFabric.html

and some of this stuff in black for the bass traps...
http://www.atsacoustics.com/item--Bu...ide--1009.html

got some of these to hook em' to the walls...
http://www.atsacoustics.com/item--Ro...-rotofast.html

Not doing frames. Going to use the spray adhesive to mount the fabric to the boards for the walls... and mount them like that with the hardware. I think frames would be a waste of time for me and would add too much complexity :crazy: My plan is to use the owens corning 703 look alike stuff and make 6 easy does it panels.

With the remaining 12 panels I'm going to make some easy does it bass traps gik tri-trap style. I'm going for something like this in the black.
http://www.gikacoustics.com/gik_tri_trap.html
4' X 8' panels... cut em' in half for 4 ' 4's. Cut them on an angle and I have triangles. So each panel will be 4 triangles. 2" thick each... 8" per board, 6 boards. I'll get 2 four foot tall tri-traps with 12 panels. Use the spray from 3M to hold them together. Thats the plan. Easy as I can fathom. My mother is actually going to help me with the aesthetics of all this, and she is pretty detail oriented. I'll post some pictures for sure when I'm done. Should be done wednesday night. I'm excited.

Got the panels and mounting hardware in today... but they didn't ship the fabric. I cut up some rockwool into triangles and stacked em in the corners... just can't finish the job w/o the fabric. I'm going to have to delay this til maybe next week.

Got some of the fabric in... ATS giving me the jerk around with shipping this stuff. Everything was "in stock" when I ordered... I got the panels monday, the mounting hardware tuesday, half the fabric wednesday.
Still waiting on the black fabric for the tri-traps, you'd figure out of everything I ordered, they'd at least have the black fabric in stock.

Finished 6 panels and 1 bass trap. They look pretty good. The panels do anyhow. The bass traps are big ol' son of a bitches. I haven't mounted the panels yet, but I'm thinking of doing 2 on the ceiling and 4 on the walls. The wife isn't too happy about putting them on the ceiling... but I let her get new landscaping today ;; So its my world.

Listening to this room now that its treated acoustically is a totally different experience. Everything seems more controlled and detailed. The highs do seem a bit more dull, and the lows more controlled... But I can tell that now better equipment will really make a difference. Unfortunately I think treating the room is going to cost me a fortune... cause I'm probably buying an amp really soon... then speakers again etc ;;

ATS sandshape circles fabric is pretty sweet. Better than anything I put my mouth on and blew at jo-ann fabrics. I felt like a idiot in there.... What do I need to run REW? Do I need a microphone? What kind of Mic do you recommend? Not wanting to spend alot here.
