    They Work Great - But Here's a Better Way to Mount Them

    I bought two sets of these to treat my new home studio, a converted bedroom. I promise I'll get to the panels in a second, but first a word about the walls and why I didn't want to use the supplied hardware.

    I just bought my condo and it took a coat of primer followed by THREE coats of paint to finally cover the depressing midnight blue grey on the walls with a fresh, light peach. Before that could be done, I had to have a full-wall mirror removed. So it was a pretty big, expensive, labor-intensive deal to get those walls to look good. Would I even THINK about putting 32 large screws with drywall sleeves into those walls? Nope! Someday, I'm going to sell this place and move onward (and upward, I hope) and there's no way I would be willing to yank out that hardware and then fill the gaping holes.

    The tiles and panels seemed lightweight enough for adhesive Velcro strips, but I wanted to be sure they would hold up for a long time. I ordered some Velcro Extreme Outdoor strips. They are STICKY and the Velcro holds like crazy. Now, we'll see if they stay. Hope so; I really don't want my pretty new wall riddled with holes!

    Oh...and as for the tiles themselves, there is very little reverb left in that room. A dramatic difference! The price is fair, too. Sure, you can save a few bucks making your own acoustic panels out of sheets of fiberglass insulation (YouTube has lots of videos) but that's messy and even hazardous work; you don't mess with fiberglass. After buying the fabric, insulation and adhesive, you don't save that much anyway. These are beveled nicely and are thick and tightly covered with linen-like fabric. They look clean and neat. I'm very happy.

    WOWWWW

    Perfect for my room. I had to check several time to make sure that I didn't actually get new monitors. Seriously Night and day.

    worth noting: while it cleaned up pretty much everything in the room, it is not super effective on low end. seems like it tightened everything up but didn't really do any "trapping" so I think that will be my next investment.

    still; 10/10. great to install

    Does the job

    I used this kit in conjunction with sound treatment that I already had to complete the treatment in my new isolation room. It works well. I am very happy with it.

    The room treatment is just what was needed for our studio. Sweetwater, as usual, did everything in a professional manner. Always a pleasure to work with them!

    Good Start; Easy to Install

    My room is on the big end of the range recommended for this kit, so it doesn't make a dramatic difference but it's definitely noticeable and was worth installing. I hear more definition in my monitors than before when listening to the same mixes. You may still need bass trapping along with this, depending on the size and characteristics of your room. The kit is easy to install. You'll need a drill and a level but it isn't hard (and I don't regard myself as particularly handy). I wish Primacoustic would sell individual tiles or small lots at retail, in addition to these kits, as my room is probably in between the 8 and 12. It also would be great to see more colors. But I understand it's probably not efficient for them to do either of those and keep the price down.
