It looks like I’ll need to have my foam panels freestanding at my first reflection points due to some obstacles. Also, if I put a panel 90 degrees to my listening position on my right side, I’ll have no wall behind it. My questions are: do I need a backing board to the panels so I get some reflection back or just let the sound go through – especially on the one with no wall behind? Does a freestanding panel need thicker foam than 2”? Thanks.

D, Fill out the information in this link. I can not tell what you are trying to do. https://acousticfields.com/fre…..-analysis/

I have found that Studio Pro acoustic foam works best if wall mounted with an air gap between the foam and the wall. Free standing foam works but seems to be slightly less efficient than wall mounted foam . Try to wall mount that foam with an air gap.
