Thanks Glenn.

One more question:

If I place the bass traps flat on the wall, do they need some type of gap behind them? Right now they are attached to 2" strips which actually gives them about 1.5" of a gap. However, the wood will be nearly flat against the wall (no sound or air can get behind except for whatever gap is behind once the hanging hardware is attached... wire and/or D-hooks or both) so I'm not sure if this qualifies as a gap.

Oh yeah, just so you know... I decided to go your route of taking the foil off the backs of the panels used just for absorbers. I took your advice on the room you found treated with the foil on the backs and once you removed it, it improved the room drastically.
