    And free beer, that's a good way to get some people involved too.

    I think you could attract a lot more DIY Audio guys if you raffled off an Opal nugget ice maker this year....just sayin.

    Our sourcing guy is looking into what we could get from existing suppliers, we use insulation in quite a few products so we'll see what he comes back with.

    Yeah, call me paranoid. I am. I just have a problem with the thought of glass fibers somehow being blown out of the port and straight down my throat. I don't use FG at all and I will wrap Roxul in another material to keep it from shredding, etc. Since I found the Denim stuff, that's pretty much all I use. Or I will use it in combo with Sonic Barrier, which is also good, but not cheap.

    The UltraTouch Denim that HD sells can be purchased online for relatively cheap if you get the six pack of rolls for $36. Free shipping with a $45 order.

    This is my go-to lining for speakers. Great NRC rating, eco-friendly and no itch (as Ani pointed out). It's not advisable to use fiberglass for vented enclosures BTW, but I'm sure everyone knows that. I'm a bit cautious too on the mineral wool (Roxul) in vented enclosures, but there's more than one way to skin a cat. You can always put mesh over it, or a layer of Dacron, and old cotton t-shirt, etc.

    Menard's carry ultratech ultrasound denin insulation. A bit more expensive than fiberglass insulation but health friendly and non itchy.

    Roxul Safe"n"Sound has a great NRC and is usually available at both Home Depot and Lowes. I found that ATS is good, but expensive. Your material of choice should be Roxul or good ole Owens Corning. Denim insulation works well also and is eco-friendly, so that's another potential material for you.

    I've ordered from this place. They sell the "burlap" covering,too. Those 2'x4' rockwool bats would be perfect for what you're wanting to do.

    "Roxul" I bought a dozen of more from an insulation company in Nashville. They have different depths, but I bought 3 inch I believe. I'm sure they sell it in Lville. It looks like Metro Material, 84 Lumber in Jefferson, Home depot in New Albany, or Lowes in Clarksville, Ind. I bought the burlap at hobby lobby, with a 40% discount online.

Let me know, as I'm not retired yet, and work can get in the way.

    What is the material you have and do you know of a good supplier for it? Purchasing materials won't be a problem if I can get help identifying what to get and where to get it from.

If absorbers are the way to go maybe we could do some kind of group buy for materials and people could build some for home while we build some for the venue.
