Thanks! Please allow me to explain a little more about the considerations for the design.While filling the entire 6" (15cm) with absorbent material would outperform a 4" (10cm) panel with 2" (5cm) air gap, it would be difficult to hang. If you're designing panels to be hung off the wall like picture frames, some air gap would always be present. Anyway, wWe had seriously considered making 6" panels instead of 4" panels, but decided against it due to space constraints.Also, rigid fiberglass was chosen over rockwool because we read that quite a few people had rockwool panels sag over time. It's been 3+ years since these rigid fiberglass panels were built and they are still holding up well :)
For me it worked. Spins well. Needs to keep a distance between straw and rear part of fan.

Fair enough. I just think both sides should be mentioned when talking about an air gap. using roxul over 703 is usually cheaper as well. - Florios
A 6" panel def would not need an air gap. But most DIYers use A shallow depth frame to match the roxul, and mount them flat on a wall. I totally agree an air gap on a 6 is thick enough that you don't need it and it will def outperform 3.5-4" Panel. - AjP79
this is not true. It's dependant on thickness of pannels and density. For example if you use roxul safe n' sound at 6" of depth flush mounted, it will out preform a 4" deep pannels with a 2" airgap made out of a denser material. Regardless great design here.
Nice Acoustic Panel a Design!I like how you placed the acoustic insulation panels flush with the face of the frame, creating the airgap required all from within frame itself. As most absorbers that are DIY most do not account for the air gap making them almost non absorbent. Nice Job!!.
The Acoustic Insulation in the front on the face isn't a common practice for wall mount absorbers, But..... Is extremely effective as it creates the required airgap to make the acoustic panel as a whole very effective. No Airgap=Minimal absorption, 1" or Greater Airgap for a wall mount 2x4 Panel will be Very effective
I made this and it doesn't spin at all. You can't use a flat fastener.
