If you search the thread a bit (not easy) you will find several very good discussions of this topic and even some pics.

Guitar Center actually has some decent prices on sound panels. I was surprised to see it, but I guess they aim for the home studio market and so you can get whole packages for $600. Seemed like a decent deal, but I did not price out each part.

I think Menards carries the insulation board, similar to Owens Corning 703, at least visually it looks the same.

Newkid. Whats important is the density. As long as its 3lb/cu.ft. or more it will perform the same. Mineral board is an equivelant as well. You might also look for other manufacturers. I found stuff from Ottawa Fibre locally.
