are my measurements right?

okay, i am buying foam paneling to help with should dampening in my room.. i am not the best at measuring so i need assistance..

 

my wall (from trim to trim, height) is 6.66666 (repeated) so buying 6 foam panels (12x12) would cover (almost) all of it

 

now, the pack i am buying is 48 pieces (still 12”x12”) so it is 48’ total.. now, there are 2 walls i wanna partially cover

 

so, i wanna put 48 panels evenly distributed on my walls, 24 on each

 

i wanted to find out how many feet (panels) i could go outwards in each direction (left and right) 

 

since i will buy 48, and my wall can fit 6 in height, 48 / 6 = 8

 

then i need to find out how many feet in each wall length wise..

 

so 2 walls, meaning 8 / 2 = 4

 

so with 48 panels, i can have 4 columns on 6 on each wall, equaling 8 total columns (4 x 2 = 8) 

 

then going up and down

 

so 6 x 8 = 48

 

so on both of my walls, i can cover 24 square feet of paneling on each..

 

 

 

 

did i do this right?

Seems right.

 

My suggestion: If you have limited panels, not enough to cover the entire width of the wall, you have 2 ways of installing them:

 

1. Concentrate around where the sound is going to be loudest - make the panels dense and close together right where your TV or computer is.

2. Space them out evenly across the entire wall (Eg: Your wall is 12 feet long. You have 4x tiles to place width-wise. You space the tiles out every 3 feet).

 

Option 1 is good if you're doing streaming or something and want to limit noise coming out of your room. Option 2 is good if you want to limit noise coming into the room.

 

You may want to try both, and see which appears more effective.

 

Alternatively, if you have a lot of the 2 walls not covered width-wise, you could take one of the 6 vertical tiles, and move it into the horizontal. (This would change from 6 tiles high to 5 tiles high - use the saved tiles to spread the width wider).

That might be fine. But I would also test spreading them out to cover a larger surface area of the wall, with small gaps between them.

 

By spreading them out, you'll reduce the amount of sound that just bounces around your walls.

Yes - though by how much depends on the specific variables, including how loud/echo-y the room in question gets.

not very echo-y, in fact.. i’ve never hear an echo.. the longest wall is 11ft, then i think 8 ft.. then 7ft tall i think.. i’m not sure..

 

but out there are 2 beds, a closet, 3 huge cardboard boxes, a tv stand, and a tv
