    I got a question for you guys. I'm being forced to get a single mattress for my music room so I can sleep in the room when my Wife is sleeping with the new baby (she does not want me to roll over on the baby) or vice versa. Are there any heavy foam single mattress beds that would also work and a...

    I'm thinking of connecting two 4x10" expanded foam pvc sheets together so as to cover my 9'4" tall by 11 foot wide wall as part of the visuals for a home flight sim. I'm concerned about adhesive residue creating imperfections on the screen side prior to priming and goo painting. Is there any...

    Hello all- I recently finished my IB setup in my house (6 18'' FICAR). Although I'm still working through some issues, the sound is amazing--except for one issue. My sitting locating seems to be the one place where I can notice a drop in SPL (db). No, I have not tested with meters or used REW...

    I've got a lot of echo behind my screen. I've got a false wall, that the screen hangs on. There is almost 2 feet of space between this false wall and the real wall. I'd like to know if covering the entire wall and floor behind the screen would help any? My front left, right, center channel...

    I have an older Sony speaker and the 12" drivers had rotted foam. I replace the foam with some universal stuff because there was no kit specifically for my application. The kit did list my speakers as a fit though. Well a couple months later I checked the job and the foam is peeling away from...

    I have some older Sony floor front speakers and the 12" woofers need new foam. The kits I have found don't have a dust cap and aren't calling for a new one to be put on. Is a new dust cap important? These are the retailers that I have found the kits through, any recommendations of one over the...

    We've talked about using various brands of closed cell expanded foam PVC sheets for making DIY projection screens in many threads here, I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread just for discussing these materials. These sheets are know by a number of names, and while there are subtle...

    Does 1" foam work for insulation in a speaker better that say fiberglass insulation?

    Hello Guys First post, read lots however I want to check a few things with guys who know their stuff. I have finally realised I need room treatment to get better sound - I want to do some, but it needs to be kept to its minimum because of the wife factor. This is going in our living room so...

    Will this cheap foam act as good absorbers to reduce the over liveliness of my room (plain brick walls and tiled floor)? Dimension of the whole piece is 90x90x7.5cm, density of 30kg/m3. The purpose is just to control slap echo and some simple absorption for HT purpose. I don't expect this to...

    We are asked frequently how our products compare to corner foam bass traps that you see all over the internet. To help give a fair comparison to our customers we purchased 16 2' foam bass traps and did testing in our lab at GIK Acoustics. To make it a fair comparison we used 8 GIK 244 Bass...

    Hi, I have a cabinet next to my listening position (couch), which is placed up against the rear wall. Without getting into a discussion about how bad a position this is, basically the cabinet forms a 90 degree angle with the rear wall right at the corner of the couch and causes some pretty bad...

    Hey guys. A friend has a pair of Cerwin Vega VS 100's and has foam rot along the bottom of the speaker. I have never done a repair on one of these but I am very good at fixing anything that requires attention to detail. He wants a repair kit in red to keep the traditional look of the CW...

    I just moved into a 2 bedroom, - the plan being 1 room is where my studio will be. I don't need this room to be the "perfect" studio - as research shows I'm far from achieving that. I do, however, want to fix some problems that I've been dealing with. So far, all I have in there is my new...

    I was looking to build a HT subwooofer, and one of the choices is a GR Research version of the rythmik audio servo sub using a 600 watt amp, and two GR woofers. The woofers looked like they had foam surrounds, I asked, and Danny says they do. Being the impertinent individual I am, I asked what...

    I am having difficulty getting foam panels and corners to stay stuck! I've tried 3M Super 77 and 99, applied to wall and foam. Waited for it to tack and then put in place. Stays stuck very well for a few days and then they all just pop off. I'm wondering if the propellant in the adhesive is...
