Wall Of Trap??

I'll be setting up a new room soon and the wall behind my desk is currently a window and an extra door. I plan to frame that wall and hang drywall and I'll have another door on the side. I was originally going to hang the drywall and put up treatment making the wall 'dead' while the wall opposite will have a diffusor.

I recently thought to just fill that frame with roxul and cover it with burlap and or pegboard instead of drywall. The dimensions of the room are 14'w X 17'L x 10'H. This would be pertaining to one of the 14' walls.

So what do you think? One 14' X 10' wall behind the mixing desk as dead as possible or drywall and a bunch of bass traps? It'll probably be the same amount of money either way.

Yes, I agree that is your best solution.

Thanks Ethan! What do think is better - pegboard or burlap as the covering?

Agreed, and sorry I missed answering that earlier because it's important!

Yes you really want to avoid pegboard on the front of a panel.
