    I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but foam really doesn't do much in the frequencies you're going to have problems with.

    If I were you, I'd cut a corner in that room (something similar to this SMALL VOCAL BOOTH design, stud the interior and fill it with 4" 703.

    That "cut corner" filled completely with *SOFT* (not rigid for a change) fiberglass is going to make a rather huge difference...

    But save the foam for packing things.

    11ft.. No To High Thats Higher Than A Regulation Basketball Goal..a Regulation Goal Is 10FT... You Want It 6.5Ft-7Ft ..You Want To Build It With A Thick Cardboard Like Material.. Then Fill The Whole Thing With Soundproof.. You Can Find Soundproof You Need Real Cheap On Ebay.. I Buld A Whole Room For 1500 The Material I Had Around The House I Jus Spent 1500 On Soundproof..8Ft Celling Is Absurd Cuz Most PPls Room Is 9.. The Cellin Needs To Jus Fit Over The Walls If You Use Cardboard.. I Had To Friends Holding The Walls Then Put A Celling Over It.. Cutting The Edges Off.

    11 feet would be a decent size for the *SHORT* wall in a vocal booth...

    It's the 5-foot part that's killing him. 11x15 makes a nice booth...
