Limp mass "curtains". Bass Traps

Limp mass "curtains".

A few years ago Michael, the designer of EMES speakers, sent me a pic of what he believed was a very effective & easily made bass trap (of course I've lost the pic!).

It was simply a series of 18mm MDF panels, approximately 3000mm by 1000mm, i.e the width of the small room, hanging from the ceiling, each one having some felt/absorber material glued to it (of approx 25mm thick). The distance between each MDF panels was approx 75mm. This is from memory.

So my question is, rather than build standing, corner bass traps, could I use a similar technique & hang a series of loaded vinyl "curtains" from the ceiling, each one having a wool/fibreglass blanket adhered to it?

Thanks,
Bob.

Philip Newel uses that approach.

See the front cover of his book (LHS wall, but is also used hanging from the ceiling).
