He is not, Nhan is in Frisco Mark....maybe we can run out there weekend after next, I am in Chicago next weekend....one night after work would be possible also...wait a minute, maybe you guys should do this without me, that's more like me, avoiding work! :applause:
Haha! You guys are more than welcome to drop by whenever. Maybe while we work on the LS6s, we can put Art to work with mounting my DIY acoustic panels I'm working on

I figured I'd keep them simple and cheap for the first go-around. I'm wrapping the entire panel with some nice fabric I found at JoAnn's. Looking for some insulation like Owens Corning 705 right now. Do you know of a local carrier? I can always order it off the internet, but would like to use someone local if possible.

Here's the trace of one of the LS6s. The panels-in-the-making are in the background.

I'll check with our guys at work tomorrow on the Owens Corning 705, although if Mark reads this tonight he may know...

The panels in my room we just used big velcro patches on all four corners and glued them to the wall and the panel, worked pretty easy....mine have no wood in them though, spray enameled the edges to make them more rigid instead of wood framing....

Cool....thanks much. I'm making these bigger than normal (2'x5'x4"). I guess the owens corning fiberglass will be 2" thick. Gives me some room to work some rope lights into the back of the frames

If you can't find any acoustical material for your panels locally, here's a real good internet source. http://www.atsacoustics.com/cat--Fib...ards--106.html

I bought the Roxul AFB mineral wool for my DIY corner bass traps, as it is 1/3 the price of OC 705, with very similar performance. Great bang for the buck. They also have Roxul Rockboard if you need more rigid stuff. ATS also has very affordable ready made acoustical panels, with free shipping with a purchase over $300. I bought some of those too last fall and have been pleased.

Thanks. I'll keep that site in mind re: the Roxul product.
