I finally finished the structure and I'm looking for advice on acoustic panels for the wall.I was thinking maybe three on each sidewall about 3 x4 ft. made out of a 2x2 frame cover it with fabric and fill it with
some type of sound absorbing material.Any suggestions on it or anything else to make it better?

GIK acoustics sells them cheap if you cant make them yourself. I recently purchased some and they help the sound tremendously.

Talk to Bryan Pape on here. Very helpful.

You may take some measurements with REW and some waterfalls to see what your problem areas are.

That would help anyone making recommendations to you.

#1 Broadband bass absorbers in the front corners.

#2 Completely deaden the front wall

#3 Reflection panels as you described. Try to get a full 2" thick if only doing 3 panels per side.

Fill material would be 2.5lb-4.5lb mineral wool, 3lb fiberglass board, or 3lb acoustic cotton.

The room looks relatively long and the speakers relatively close to the front wall - pretty much the same 2" material would be appropriate.

Bryan, to deaden that wall does that mean I need to completely cover it or will panels work?
Sorry for all the questions i'm not even a novice yet.:huh:

No problem at all. You can do it however you want as long as it's dead. If you do panels, it will just take quite a few of them. You want it completely covered.
