How To Build Jon Risch’s DIY Acoustic Panels

Oct 11, 2022 My Blog

Jon Risch’s Do-It-Yourself acoustic boards have changed my framework more than some other change and part overhaul. Subsequent to setting the boards at my listening room’s initial and diffraction reflection focuses (two behind the speakers and four on the sidewalls (the two boards nearest to me really sit in armchairs since I can’t move the seats far removed)) I heard these enhancements. Since that underlying listening meeting I’ve had blended results from Cds played in my Trailblazer DV-47ai and Taddeo Advanced Antitoxin II: certain frequencies and instruments are excessively easygoing. I’ll eliminate the Taddeo and check whether I get a similar extraordinary exhibition as from my Airtunes playing MAX tore Apple Lossless tracks.

Peruse on for my tips and deceives to develop these boards yourself and save to 90% over business acoustic boards.

Materials required for 6 17×48 inch acoustic boards:

  • Home Store: 24 feet R-25 Protection (15 in. wide and 8 in. thick)
  • Home Store: 16 4 foot long 1×4 sexually transmitted disease sheets
  • Home Store: #8 2 in. Screws (I purchased oneself penetrating kind so I just needed to bore subset pilot openings in the long sheets of the casing, the more limited sheets to the screws with no parts)
  • Home Store: 9/16 Staples (you want the long staples to overcome the many layers of texture and batting)
  • Texture Store: 10 yards 4 oz. 100 percent Polyester Batting
  • Texture Store: 10 yards Burlap (let your life partner Acoustic panels assist with picking the variety, then, at that point, she can’t say anything negative later)

Devices required:

  • Power Drill/Driver
  • Corner Tight clamp (spend something like $8, the $3 one broke when it contacted wood, which cost me one more excursion to the home store)
  • Staple Firearm (you will staple like a lunatic on this undertaking so be certain and get a decent staple weapon, I killed my Dark and Decker Powershot partially through the venture and needed to purchase another one that actually had sticking issues, so don’t utilize a Powershot, get a pleasant Bolt weapon)
  • Miter Hand Saw


Wood Edges

  • Match 4 ft. studs for length into 6 sets
  • Take 4 most exceedingly awful studs and slice down to 12x 15 in. lengths with hand miter saw (or table saw), make 90 degree cuts
  • Take a little piece of 1×4 and mark profundity at one or the flip side of 4 ft swaggers
  • Drill 2 counter sunk pilot openings at each end in the undeniable off region on the long sheets
  • Utilizing a 90 degree corner bad habit, butt up a short and long post. Drill screws through the pilot openings into the short board. Rehash for the other long and short pair. You currently have two “L” shapes.
