Thanks to Saltwater for finding and posting this vid in its own thread. I think it belongs here as well. It demonstrats room treatments better than any vid I've seen.

Here is a great vid about making ceiling/sidewall absorber. The real cool thing is how he is attaching them. Very clever. The rest of the vid is normal "how to" on making panels.

That's amazing! I knew sound absorption panels would have an effect but I had no idea to what extent. There is nothing subtle about it at all. Thanks for posting the link.
