DIY bass trap questions! Help please!

Hi guys I've got 2 bass trap questions

1. If I am making 4" deep bass trap panels for my living room where I want to track and mix is it worth the extra cash to get oc 705 or is 4" of 703 sufficient?

2. I was going to cover it with a layer of cloth or burlap. Is this oc stuff safe behind only a layer of burlap? It's not going to kill me?

3. Anyone have any ideas for how you like to hang them?

Thanks!

4. As far as construction goes-- I was thinking I'd use 1/4" plywood or Masonite board as a backing, put the 703 or 705 on top of it, and wrap it up with fabric-- glue the fabric to the backboard. But they will be straddling a few corners-- am I wasting the air space between the trap and the wall by using a backboard like plywood or Masonite board?

Fiberglass is safe enough behind burlap. It's main problem is as an irritant. Some folks use a layer of cheesecloth under the burlap, especially when working with rock wool - which is nastier stuff in my book.

Bump.

Room size: L 7' x W 4' x H 7.5'

All walls and ceiling space are covered with either 4" OC703 or 4" OC705.

My question is-- I have not trapped the wall/floor corner junctions at all-- is that going to be an issue?

Also, do I need something in there less intense than 703 and 705 for high frequencies or the bass trapping is all encompassing..

Thank you
