Yea we're haywire!

We do this stuff everyday in our day jobs (both electricians) so getting close to the blade doesn't make us nervous.


Glad you like the pics! A big part of the project is getting to work with my dad.


more pics soon to come. (we're painting this weekend)

I don't see any hearing protection in that picture- tutt tutt tutt tutt tutt tutt tutt


Get some now, or in short order all that work you're doing won't make a bit of difference.

Actually, I was wearing ear plugs under my tuque). I work in underground mines and I wear them from the second I begin the shift right to the end.

Those frames look awesome!

But I am a little affraid of how much they will reflect. In any case, if you are using almost no acoustic treatment now, you are going to make a HUGE improvement. Looks like quite a project, but I nice and useful one at that.

If you need help, please let me/us know! But, it looks like you've got it under control!

Amen!

We did think of drilling holes (something like 1" to 1 1/2") on the side of the frames. Would that make a significent difference?


Any info is extremely useful!

thanks

Yes, using a hole saw may be the best thing in my opinion. Making your holes as large as possible while maintaining the integrity of the frame is something to keep in mind. Allowing the sides of your panels to absorb sound (breath) as well, will help maintain a good overall acoustical "balance" with your traps.

You might want to consider using a 1/4 inch round over bit on your router for better aesthetics though if making such holes. Just a thought..

I hope that helps. thumbsup

Ok folks,

This has been taking a little longer than expected but how the hell do you find the time to do this when you have a full time day job!!!


So the traps are painted Yeeeey!! and now what lefts is to build the frames that hold the fabric in place. 2 per trap!!


We build one to show.


Here's a shot with the 703 held in place.

Looking good Jason. I like the look of the blue/with the black fabric. What fabric are you using. Is that burlap? btw, do you happen to know Ray Poise? I noticed you are in Sudbury..... thumbsup

sorry for the late reply,

the fabric is regular speaker grill cloth.


It works like a charm! nice stretch to it.





We're mounting these up as we speak. So far the room's sound has changed dramatically. It's really weird to be in there since we were so used to a non focused environment.


The look is sick!! bass traps every single corner, every wall (mid/high absorbers)


wow!


pics soon to come.



Jason


ps: Acoustic treatment really works!! I can already hear the difference.

Hi Jason

I live in Toronto and was wondering where you bought the 703 from as well. I'm having a hard time finding it.

i built my own also, very easy. except i just wrapped the fabric (guilford of maine) around the frames eliminating the need to paint them.

Painting and building inner frames is a lot more time consuming!!



But, the way they look hanging up is breath taking

but less effective. i drilled holes in the sides of the frames (thanks to Glenn @ GIK Acoustics for the advice) that get covered by the fabric.

agreed



but to what extent?


looks vs. sound absorbtion (there's a comprimise there) although we also thought about the holes on the sides but we were too aheadi n the ball game to take that step.

They still changed the room's character drastically

thanks.

i was going to edge mine in maple to go with the rest of the furniture but Glenn suggested drilling the holes and wrapping, so i went that way.

i love these build type threads with pics, thanks for sharing.

Jason

On a 4 inch panel it will give you something like 50% more absorption if the sides are open..
But with all that said those panels look and I am sure will work great for you.. Great work!!!

Are you going to do a before and after test?
