HOW TO – Stackable sound baffles


Jim Robert made an instructable for stackable “gobos,” portable sound baffles for absorbing or reflecting sound for a reconfigurable sound work environment. He has the tutorial up on his website, too.

    Peg board holding in fiberglass? I would not want to breathe in whatever room that’s in.

    Great idea, I would certainly make this myself for my sound room, where I can store them when not in use. Great.

    However, the idea that the sound insulation is not ‘enclosed’ keeping loose fibres from falling to the air does propose a hazard. Even more problematic as these will most likely be tossed about….

    I would use a foam insulation on the interior, and create an irregular surface on the interior (like steps) stacking 2″ rigid insulation acorss the board. Any sound that enters the holes of the pegboard can further be discipated/canceled by the irrugular interior.

    Awsome job on your part none-the-less….
