View Full Version : acoustic ceiling tiles

Does anyone know of any links that would have pictures of home theater rooms with acoustic ceiling tiles? Not the foam but something wrapped in fabric. I wanted to do this in my room and wanted ideas (and something to get the wife's approval before I start). She agreed to a curtain but wanted to see some examples. I know some of you have wrapped fiberboard etc...
Thanks for the help!

I've done exactly what you mentioned. Just took some acoustic ceiling panels and wrapped them with cloth using a glue gun. It looks cruder than commercial products out there, but all things considered it works pretty well. Also, note that I suspend them off of a picture molding under the ceiling line. Anyway, check the links below.

Some of the links in my gallery post (look at comment #3) describe what I tried out with the ceiling panels.

Here are some sources for buying more finished looking and professional acoustic panels (w/ pics)

Thanks so much for the reply. I'm anxious to get started on this. If I can figure it out, I'll put a picture on here when I'm done. I just finished a riser and added lights under it, and will have a large curtain up by the end of next month. This is my little project after the wife and kid go to bed. Last night I just decided to "enjoy the music" and I fell asleep in my chair 5 minutes after I sat down.
