Just understand it is not suitable for putting in front of a speaker. You'd want to go to the FR701 series for that purpose.
What do you mean by in front of a speaker ? First reflection points ?

Re: GIK Rec Rm. recomendation.

Sorry. I meant literally in front of it - like for a false wall, grilles in columns with speakers behind, etc.

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

UPDATE

2 244's under window and two 244's on right.
3 242's "in a cloud"

Things sound a LOT better !

The new panels seem to be built better than the 4 older 244's on front wall and front sides . I don't like hanging them with picture wire , they distort from the weight of the panel.

Is there a better way to hang them or should I try and place metal strapping behind them to stiffen them up ?

The "cloud " is 1 3/4 " from the ceiling . I'm going to try and get it closer to an inch. Would it help to add 2" of 703 to the top ?

Re: GIK Rec Rm. recomendation.

I wouldn't bother with the 703.

The panels should not be distorting when hung. If you prefer something else, you could use Z clips.

Why would you not bother on the 703? If I left a 1 1/2 " gap from the ceiling , wouldn't they be similar to a 244 or are 244's over kill on the ceiling?

They bow in and the fabric does not look as tight . I may try what you suggested or "d-ring " hooks .

Thanks

Re: GIK Rec Rm. recomendation.

You asked, I gave my opinion. For the cost. You could add an inch I guess to fill the gap. Not sure how much it will really help to trade 1" of 703 for 3/4" less spacing. Probably about a wash.

Re: GIK Rec Rm. recomendation.

I was actually thinking 2 inch 703 since I already own it. If I cut it a little short around the edge of the "cloud " you would not notice it . It still could have a 1 1/2 " gap (or more ) to the ceiling ?

The d- clips work great . (one on each side an inch from top)

Thanks

Re: GIK Rec Rm. recomendation.

Bpape ,

Does your opinion change going to 2 inch ?

What should be my next move ? Replace 244 's behind front speakers with monster bass traps or put monster bass traps on the front corner side walls were the 244's are ? I could do both down the road .

Thanks

Re: GIK Rec Rm. recomendation.

2" would be a definite benefit.

Not sure going from 244 to Monster behind the speakers will give you any gains in frequency response though it would add additional LF decay time control down to around 70hz.
