    Well, that too. It should probably go in the "Studio Build" forum. But, also, be prepared to get a lot of opinions concerning foam for acoustic purposes, most of which will be negative.

    little bit offtopic but best way would be selling the foam and building some bass traps few useful links:
    http://mysite.ncnetwork.net/resqg90a/id31.html
    http://webpages.charter.net/jdgeisen.../BassTrap1.htm

    if you search around here you will find out quickly why foam is bad.

    1/4" masonite hardboard from your local Home Depot.

    Glue the foam to the panels (whatever works out for the squares, usually 2'x4')

    Best glue I've used is Arlene's Foamtastic from any crafts store. Cheap and holds great.

    Hang the hardboard panels like pictures on the wall with removeable tape picture hangers.

    (Then of course you're going to learn that just hanging foam panels on the wall won't help you out...)

    But broadband panels (and plenty of them) will.

    Or even bags of R32 stacked in the corners.

    But foam only works at absorbing high end. 95% of the problem with your room is low end. Foam will only make it 100% of the problem.

    Can you put up picture hooks?

    If so, glue (spray contact adhesive) a CD to the back of the foam, towards the top and centered. Hang the assembly on the picture hook using the hole in the middle of the CD.

    Cheers,
