big difference?

Hi, I have just got my first load of rockwool and im starting with my wall/wall corner traps.

I was wondering if there is a big difference between building 4" thick panels and placing them in the corners with slight gaps as seen in many studio's, similar to Ethan Winers house? (not sure if it was HIS house) is probs my best way to explain.

Or

Doing same thickness panel but making them from floor to ceiling as one panel with no gaps?

I hope this gets my point across as im not sure on the correct terminology.

Thanks.

^^^ I can't tell what you're asking, but traps that straddle a corner should be tight into the corner with no gap.

I think that is what he was trying to say.

You always want to cover as much corner area as possible.

sorry maybe this should clarify...

The second and third photo's down on the left hand side of the screen (minitraps and corner mondo traps), the panels (bass traps) are not from wall to ceiling as one panel and there is visible 'gaps' where you can see the corner behind the panel. Is there a massive difference between having e.g. 2 panels in the corner rather than building one panel that goes from the floor to the ceiling?

Hope this clarifies what im saying.

Thanks.
