If you want specific product as Factory Outlet, you just have to be willing to wait a bit. If you want specific product as B-Stock, you might have to take a factory tour and bring a hammer

From the couple books I have read: Below 200-300hz the walls become less effective at blocking sound transmission. Room modes are thought to be augmented by bulking up walls, as you allude to, but they are best dealt with by dimensions and bass tra

Some notes on the room size... A "square" is an acoustical nightmare. 1 Foot difference in length or width will make a difference (pun intended) in the acoustical performance. Staggered Stud Wall is what Catbrat is mentioning with the 2

Is it too late to suggest something other than square (18x18) for the room dimensions ? IIRC the room would be large enough that the dominant room mode would be down at 30 Hz but it would still help a bit if you could get length and width to be diffe
