    Very nicely done! Love the fabric.

    I'm inching closer to getting my HT done and that fabric looks like it would go with my color scheme really well. Not much longer and I'll be ready for room treatments.

    Looks very good, I have to get some corner treatments made to finish up our room. Treating the room makes a HUGE impact on your sound, kinda like cables and wires, hearing is believing. Good job!

    First up is a picture of how I hung them on the wall. I spent a lot of time thinking about the best way to do this and this is what I came up with:

    I bought some 1"x1" square dowel rods and cut them down into 6" sections. I then glued two to each board, 6" away from the top and bottom edge. I then cut down a 1-1/8"x1-1/8" plastic corner pieces (not sure exactly what they're called, its outdoor trim found at Lowe's) into 9" sections, drilled two holes in each, and screwed those into the wall at the same heights around the room. After putting one up on the wall, I realized I really only need 1 brace on the wall to hold them well. This allows me to easily take down the treatments if the need arises. It also got them 1" off the wall like everyone recommends.

    On the other side of the room, I have a shelf that houses all my media. I really don't want to get rid of it, so I tried to find a way to incorporate it in where I could still use the panels. I essentially used the same idea and rested the glued-on dowel rod on the top shelf. The beauty of this is that, although it looks weird in place, I can easily move them up on top of the shelf when they aren't in use (for the WAF).

    Here's the rest of the room:

    Its "done". There's still a few things I need to do to them, but the jist of it is done.
    looks good Bro.

    I've been reading up on panels apparently the premade side panels are 2'x2' and behind mains are 2'x4' or larger.

    I'm planning to make 1' triangles for the upper 4 corners, stuffed w/ 3" layers of Roxul rockwool.

    panels directly behind mains and center I would like to be 18" wide X 36" high X 3" thick ?do you think this will be to small?

    panels on the side wall will be just a tad smaller than 2' X 2'

    planning a wooden rear wall difusser. 20" X 20"

My ears became so accustomed to the sound over the last 9 months that any tonal change would be initially upsetting.
    You know some of the pro sound engineers think that the audiophile types are nuts for buying nice gear cables, etc and not dealing with the room. Very nice work you put in here on this project. You talk of the highs being a bit forward and even bordering harsh at times....I've heard it a several times about Usher and the reality is that the tweets have very good dispersion and don't roll off as hard off- axis. So the sound bouncing/resonating off the walls is going to cause issues.

    So, its great that you got the room in order especially if you plan to do the upgrades to them Ushers. Would love to hear your system...if you would.... but no plans to be down that way. However, I keep hearing that there is opportunuty down there in the BIG T!

    Nothing right now. I did layer some of the smaller ones in the corner, but it isn't the right material. I'll treat them eventually, but it will likely only be after I add some beefy crown molding to the room.
