    having read this months HCC mag i have noticed in the featured home cinema they have used panels on the walls to cut down on sound reflections and offer a (small?) amount of noise dampening.
    have any of you guys tried this?

    Am currently building a load for my cinema.... i built in pretty serious cavity stud walls all round to cut out low frequency resonance , but this does not really help to control errant high frequency refections so after some testing I decided to panel the walls at intervals.

    The panels are of different thickness and are all intercahngable.

    My walls are:
    10ft (screen and rear wall)
    14ft (side walls)

    at the moment the panels are 2ft x 6ft

    They are of wooden frame construction filled with studio grade 2" thick very dense acoustic foam.

    the frame is then to be covered with cloth (when i can choose it!)
