Once again, conflating the terms "sound absorption" and "acoustic treatment". These look good and sound fine, but they're very different concepts.

Just want to tell you, you inspired me, and have had a a towel hanging on my wall a year now. i skipped all of your building stuff, and just have an exact cut to lenght pole as long as your towel figure a way to keep the towel nicely on it, Then hang a towel on the wall. it works and gets you 80% there with 20% effort. (as per the rule) it is a nice patterned grey towel, did have to buy that thing, the pole i had allready, just stole it from a cleaning supplies. its amazing how much it cut the echo of the room, and i get why people hang rugs on their walls.

Just remember that fire proof materials should be used. Non fire proof sound insulation has caused many deaths. Look at the Station Night Club Fire.

Would the fabric used to cover the panel make a diffrence in the absorption of sound? Let's say I would try to use a painted canvas to diy this, would the density of the canvas fabric cancel out some of the rockwools absorption?

why would you do this in metal vs just cutting some 1x3 or 1x2 boards and wood gluing the joints together?

instead of insulation or foam, I've previously used bathroom towels. Get a load of them on sale, stack them together and voila, super sound absorption

Guys in case you are using insulating mineral wool please do it in your garage or somewere outside with heavy protection throughout your body, specifically eyes. Even if its new or old it doesn't matter, particles can still cause major irritation and sometimes even cancer if inhaled. Please be carefull!

I think cardboard is much better for this project. It's durable enough, much easier to find and cheaper, can be easily shaped and very glue friendly. Also, it discards the need for 3d printed parts.

Thank you for the inspiration! I tried to follow a made a few triangles. The worst thing was to get all the components from e-shop(s). I also decided to go for triangles with length of a=500 mm so I need to additionally cut ALU profiles. Also facing was kind of tricky for me, but the more I created the more I was skilled. Thank you again!

great idea for diy panels. Even owning a 3d printer, there’s no way i could get the materials to equal $5 per panel. more like $20-25 for a 16in equilateral triangle frame.

I like the idea of triangles. However, your corners are not sharp enough for my taste. Also, you are using the wrong absorption material. Foam and plain Rock Wool will not absorb as deep as high-density rock wool. You can buy this as near-solid sheets from both Rock Wool and Isover. Rockfon (not cheap) also sells these and they have acoustics graphs so you can see the performance. You can also add a little space behind the absorbers - it will let them absorb deeper frequencies.

Thanks for the video! Out of curiosity does the aluminium frame do anything other than hold everything? I would have thought that having metal would only make sound bounce around more.. Is it not possible to just sew a cover around the foam and hang it up? Essentially make wall cushions!?

Leaving an air gap btw. the panel and the wall would vastly increase LF absorbtion performance. Because of refraction and also getting quite more absorbing surface
