Question DIY diffuser

There were a lot of good threads and info about diy bass traps and absorber panels. Any cool link or info on how to build cheap and effective diffusers?

With diffusors, cheap and effective are often mutually exclusive. heh

Cheapest diffuser I know: poly-cylindrical diffuser can be made of a single plywood board and place some rockwool so it won't ressonate.

There was a guy on Audio Asylum that built a replica of the RPG diffusor.

Also a friend of mine is taking blocks of styrofoam, measured an actual RPG Skyline and has covered his whole ceiling with them.

I once read of a guy who used a book case with a variety of different books in it. Not to sure how well it worked but hey, if it works it works.

Does anyone know of any DIY plans for a diffuser along these lines?

But I'd aim higher. Three inches deep is not enough for full-range diffusion.
