acoustic panels????

I've been reading about building my own acoustic panels. its sounds like roxul board 60 is a better choice than roxul safe and sound. I have seen this at my local HD store roxul 410004 comfort board IS 1.5x24x48. is this the right stuff?
for making acoustic panels.
thanks

I've done a bit of research on this and am thinking 1.5 inches is way to thin to be much good. You'd probably need to have 3 layers to start impacting your sound. I've looked at this thing a bunch of different ways, and am of the opinion that, done right, you won't save too much $$ by building these yourself. There are several quality vendors that make a great product, many on this board. They'll guide you toward doing it right, at the best possible cost. You may want to save up $$ and do a few at a time.

from what i have read roxul fibre glass board is better than safe and sound.I don't know why I would have to use 4.5 inches of it as jaybeez says. I thought that 1.5 inches of fibre board would be better than 4 inches of roxul safe and sound. help me please
here is a link to the product

What are you making them to absorb? 1.5 of that material isn't going to do to much. 4" of safe n sound isn't going to do to much due to soft density of the material it's best best is to capture low frequencies, but 4" won't do to much in that area. 1.5 would be cool, but making them atleast 3" to capture high frequencies would be best cost to space ratio. While making them 6-9" would probably work best for catching the lows.

How deep are you making the absorbers? At 4" thick the Roxul 60 is better. At 7" Safe N Sound is better.

I do not recommend absorbers less than 4" thick.

I have built a 10x10 room room in my basement which have 2 walls of cement. I built new wall 2inches of the cement walls. I put Roxul safe and sound in all the walls and the ceiling. I will be using the room for mixing and recording vocals. I'am putting carpet on the cement floor. I'am wanting to build some accoustic panels for the room.
I would like to make the panels like only two inches on the wall. What Roxul product can I use.
Thanks for the help

Glue, Staples, Wall Hangers, etc. = $3
Total Cost = $29

I can buy these pre-made (and better than I can do) for $50 locally. So, while technically the materials for home-made are cheaper, I estimate a minimum of 2 hours to put each one of these together. Which means my time (which I have none to spare) would be worth About $10 / hour. That isn't enough pay for me to take on building these things. I put 10 in my room. I could have saved $200, but would have had to find 20 hours to put them together.
