    Hey Dustin, thanks for turning me on to the Rockboard. Excellent product. One thing I liked is it was dense enough that it's really easy to slice and still holds its form. I assume it's going to have the desired acoustic effect. Not really measuring before/after.

    I did 3 2x4 panels on each side wall and stuffed it thick in the back corners around my surrounds (11.5 x 20 room). I ended up taking some down because the room sounded too dead.

    You can always add back some “life” by putting a reflective material on top of the absorption stuff, scatter plates, diffusers etc.

    "Abfusion" GIK sells some models like that that have a CNC cut wood front over an absorber. They look nice.

    Dang! Nice work all around. Makes me wish I had a room I could do this to, but the house isn't built for it. But, you mentioned moving the 3 gang switches to the left. Good idea, but between that and moving the front row back - if I read that correctly - it seems like a larger screen would be called for. Is that in your plans?
