It is not a mathematically derived type diffusor like an MLS or RPG type, it is an empirically optimized/analyzed type (which can be just as effective, by the way).
What I can glean from the bits and pieces, the LeanFuser is a factor of 5 equal units high, each unit being 10 mm (of which they only use levels 0, 3, 4 and 5). Tim mentioned to make the imperial version of the LeanFuser, it would be acceptable to use 1/2" (approx 12.5mm) and that it actually worked better than the metric 10mm version.

Your version appears to be approximately 2X the LeanFuser unit height (or 2 x 10mm) given the available material depths (with a different height sequence).

LeanFuser - Yours (calculated from selected material)
50mm - 98.4mm (1.5" + .3" + (3 x .7"))
40mm - 80.9mm (1.5" + .3" + (2 x .7"))
30mm - 63.3mm (1.5" + .3" + (1 x .7"))
none - 45.7mm (1.5" + .3")
none - none
0mm - 0mm

Is this the correct interpretation (scaled by a unit factor of 2 and different height sequence) ?

LeanFuser Height Unit Sequence - 0, 4, 5, 3, 5, 4, 0
Your Height Unit Sequence - 0, 2, 3, 4, 2, 5, 0, 0, 5, 2, 4, 3, 2, 0

TIA

P.S. Debating on trying this one or a QRDude painted EPS version to experiment with.

Hello All;
being that I only have room for 2 diffusers, will "periodicity" be an issue with them side by side?

Thanks

make them not be the same distance from the listening chair or from either speaker

bwaslo,
My friend Irshad and I recently completed a pair of diffusers based on your design. We both are very impressed with the outcome of this project.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
I have attached pictures of the diffusers in Irshads listening room of the front and back walls. If their any other suggestions or improvements we can make let us know.

Finally going to make some of these.

I need to hang them so I will hear how the 2 inch foam board works.

I would like to use the same size board for everything - instead of the plywood on furring strips a 12.7 x 96 inches piece and the other pieces using 2.34 x 96 inches but using the two inches thick material.

Would this extra depth upset everything?

Don't know. Probably not a problem, is my guess (just a guess though)
