Thanks! An ugly mess next to the array just wouldn't cut it and I don't have a handy curtain to hide them behind

Looks very slick fluid - I am a little late to the game but wanted to mention that you will increase the absorption by keeping the sides open.

If waves are allowed to enter from the sides you effectively increase surface area used for absorption.

For me it worked quite well to have the array closer to that damping panel, as it took out first side wall reflections as seen from the listening position. I'm guessing that side wall reflection would hit in front of the panel as it stands right now (as seen if you put a mirror there from the listening spot). I'm guessing this was just a preliminary picture to show off though?

I considered doing that but decided against it, I wasn't sure I really needed more absorption. I could still do it on all the others but it's quite a lot more work, hmmm

The reflection is on the far left of the last picture, the positioning is not fixed yet but I did plan to put the larger width panels across the corners as shown to be bass traps. The original plan was to have another panel to the left for that reflection. It may work better to have the panels behind the arrays rather than across the corners to try and reduce the 140Hz null, time will tell as I will test both. But you are right it was a good position to show the scale compared to the array

I could always build more panels but then I really would be in a LEDE room

Nicely done.
How stable do you find that Bosch sliding compound saw on the folding stand shown?

Oh, and your shop is far too clean

Thanks, the stand is good but not quite as stable as on a bench, just needs a bit more care to keep things in line when doing sliding cuts. The saw throws a fair bit of dust even when hooked up to a vacuum so I tried the stand to make it easier to clean up, works well so far.

Ha Ha it didn't look quite so good a few weeks ago, I had to clean it up to be able to do some more work

Next one underway, I decided to put some holes in the side to try the idea of increasing absorption.

Then I remembered why I decided not to before

Dizzy from routing so many holes?
At least it reduces weight

I used the TCT holesaw I bought for when I planned to make the array baffle by hand, so no routing.

Definitely lighter I just hope not too wobbly when upright.
