Make acoustic panels for your recording studio or home theater

Step 10: Hang the panels

Decide on the location of each panel on the wall.

For each panel, measure the distance you'd like to have from the top of the panel to the ceiling. Add this distance to the distance from the peak of the picture wire to the top of the frame (approx. 2 or 3 inches). Measure that total distance down from the ceiling and mark that point with a pencil.

Affix a 2" strip of clear tape vertically in the area immediately above the pencil mark. This will help keep the drywall/plaster from crumbling when you install the picture hook.

Nail the picture hook into the wall so that the bottom of the hook is in line with the pencil mark.

Hang the completed panel on the hook. Use a level straighten the panel.

Enjoy your improved room acoustics!

For some strange reason Stumbleupon brought me to this page. Not the beginning of the 'ible, but step 10?! Anyway cool ''ible! If you have the time and resources, you should post comparisons against commercial products, for interest's sake.

I just wanted to say that was extremely helpful and I will likely make some myself! I have a similar post about sound diffusion with poster board.
