RE: Query to Jon Refined

Based on what you describe, the fiberglass rolls would probably work better than the foil/paper backed polyester.

However, they might not work "twice as well" with an eye toward the price differences.

The idea of mixing them might be a good one, that way, if one is partial to certain frequencies, and the other to different ones, they get spread out a bit by using one of each in each corner.

The huge rolls of fiberglass WILL probably work even better, but they would be more applicable to deep bass, and the cost probably wouldn't justify the slight increase in actual perceived sonic performance.

Remember, when using the SQ&D bass traps, they operate on sheer quantity
of absorbing material, and how much is crammed into the roll (density). Added membranes that are layered inside the roll can add to deep bass absorption, but depending on how much compression is present, they may not add that much.
