    Prob better for someone more experienced to post, but for what it's worth: I made some cheap DIY bass traps out of rock wool, some cloth and wooden planks (you can get batt's of rockwool at any hydroponic shop) and I'm going to order these in, you could probably make them yourself cheaper but it seems to be a not bad price.

    Ready Traps™ 2” High Frequency/Noise Absorption Panels (Set of 3) Ready Acoustics, LLC - Afforadble, Durable, and Stylish Acoustic Products - Bass Traps - DIY! Solutions - Mounts - Insulation [RT422] - $219.99 : Ready Acoustics!, Hear - Sound - Bette

    you got it right stay away from the acoustic foam... auralex is a great product top of the line acoustic foam...true enough

    but foam doesn't take care of the frequencies need to tame sound correctly ...
    ready traps... gik acoustics room kit #1 is only $550
    GIK Acoustics. Acoustic Panels and Bass Traps.

    if you're handy you can diy bass and absorption panels for super cheap..
    I'm not handy so I can't mess with diy

    Sometimes people need to make the mistakes themselves. But rockwool works wonders

    yeah I didn't know any better and spent close to $600 on auralex and marketek foam products which I still have ....
    planning on using them though in my new setup most rockwool traps are 2" to 4" I'm going to use auralex foam and marketek foam making them 6" thick and using in for second reflection point and my front wall will be 6" check out this thread for my sketches... I can't wait to grab up GIk products but will have to use auralex lenrd bass traps along with gik tri traps and 242 absorption panels till I can completely switch them out

    This probably been posted 600 times but...

    Ya you can still use them to help block the room sound out of recordings.

    What would work best in an open room just to absorb the sound coming off the walls nearest to the mic?
