Live Playing Room Bass Trap Questions

I have some Corner Bass Trap questions that have probably been answered many times before, but I am still confused ;-)

Along with 18 - 2" OC 705 panels offset 2" from the walls,

I am planning to make 4 corner Bass Traps in my live room which is 15' x 40' x 12' high.

To stay within budget, I thought that I could make simple 2' wide x 8' tall frames out of 2" x 2" wood covered in fabric and use those to hide triangles of insulation filling the corner.


1 Is this a good design?

2. Should I use OC 703 (or some other OC or Rockwool product that would be more effective or as effective but cheaper?)

3. Should I use OC 703 FRK as a first layer facing outward into the room and fill the rest of the triangle with OC 703 unfaced or another product cut to fit?

4. Any other tips that would keep me in this budget but work better?

I will also have 10 - 4' x 4' x 8" gobos filled with OC 703 with one side covered with wood and one side with fabric out on the floor separating musicians at all times.


here's a diagram of what I'm planning
