    Hello all,
    After moving my HT into a new room and installing a dedicated circuit, I'm ready for more tweaks! I've seen the instructions for DIY room treatment panels, the only problem being I'm having a hell of a time finding the 2'X4'X4'' fiberglass I'm supposed to use.
    So, if you can't tell me where to buy this in the Chicagoland area, tell me what you think about using panels for drop ceilings instead. They are, after all, made of fiberglass and can get quite dense.
    Of course I'd attach them together, frame them, and cover them with cloth.
    My Equipment, FYI
    Arcam DIVA AVR 100
    Arcam Alpha 10 P
    B&W CDM 7NT (bi-amped)
    B&W CDM CNT(bi-amped)
    B&W LM1s (surrounds)
    Panamax 5100
    Toshiba 5700
    Sony Vega XBR 36''
    Transparent interconnects
    Tributaries 12 gague speaker wire

    you should be able to get fiberglass at any homedepot type store, but its ususally 23"x47", which is obviously an inch shy on both sides. It should come in varying thicknesses too...
