Had a little time today and after much debating about what to do with the package of Safe 'n' Sound I decided to go with the original plan and put it on the front wall.

First step was to make some fasteners to hold the stuff on the wall... I had picked up some nails with plastic rings on them that were 3" because 4" weren't available locally - and I also picked up some 4" drywall screws. A little bit of effort and I had some fasteners that would hold the 3" Roxul on and have enough length to screw into a stud.

It went up pretty easily... worst part was wearing a mask, safety glasses, and gloves! I ended up going back after screwing into studs on each panel and added some extra nails in the middle to keep the panels from sagging.

While I had things apart I used my old main speaker stands combined with my center channel stand to raise the center up a bit - tweeter is at the appropriate level now...

Hung speaker fabric over the Roxul to keep it from flying around and to make it black behind the screen again...

Ended up with one and a half extra panels... so I cut some triangles (width of the panels) and ended up with a 2 foot tall corner trap! I just have to make some sort of frame to support it. Right now I just used trash bags to cover them and stuffed it into the back corner on the riser.

Didn't listen to it yet... got busy playing around with creating scenes in the room on insteon and controlling them with an Echo Dot... I'm not expecting any kind of dramatic change, I just wanted to get that package of Roxul out of the way ;)
