Find a supply house that carries 4.5lb mineral wool. That's probably the cheapest (though not the easiest to work with) material to use.

Make some triangular chunk style absorbers for the front corners and finish off the rest of the wall with some 2" covered in cloth. You can DIY this pretty reasonably.

Where is Mineral/Rock wool usually sold? Home Depot or Lowes do not seem to carry it.

Try either your local insulation supply house or potentially a metal building supplier.

Where is Fontana?

We're about 60 miles east of Los Angeles in San Bernardino County.

We have the famous California Speedway (I don't know if you like races, but at least twice a year they have NASCAR, Indy 500 or some of those popular races ... I'm not into that, so I can't tell )

Re: New basement HT Posting progress photos

Well, closest KNOWN to you is

SPI
5301 Industrial Way
Fleetside Commerce Center
Benicia, California 94510-1026
707-745-4922
707-745-4987 FAX
800-359-3555

That'd likely be cheaper than shipping from anywhere else if you have to order it. I know they have what you're looking for though. Should be able to get 4 and 8lb. Should also be able to get 2" and 4" thickness in the mineral wool. I'm sure they run trucks to LA all the time.

I'm sure there are other places in the LA area that have it too - just a matter of finding them and what they'll charge you.

More pictures!

Didn't realize I was that far behind! I have been busy! This has not taken very long considering most of the work has been done by one guy working about 5 hours a day.

Doh!

Sorry about that. Looked at the wrong thing. Try:

Brauer Supply Co.
4260 Forest Park Ave
Saint Louis, MO 63108
(314) 534-7150

Ask for Liz in insulation. Tell her I sent you. She'll know what you're looking for.
