    Building Acoustic Panels at Low Cost

    This is a project I've wanted to do for a while. I just ordered some wood and insulation for delivery from Home Depot here in the USA to make 8 acoustic panels, each 23" x 47.5" x 3 5/8" (~60 cm x 120 cm x 8.8cm) It turns out that making eight panels is a sensible and economical number of...
