Has anyone here built bass traps in Toronto ? Looking to find Owens Corning 703 rigid fibreglass. Seems that its hard to come by ...

Can I use something else ?

The Owens Corning stuff is expensive if you can find it.

I used some ridgid glass from Ottawa Fibre That was $60 for a bundle of 5 2' x 4' sheets.

I don't think the 703 is expensive, maybe in Canada. I payed about $110 US for 12 sheets of 2" x 24" x 48" panels.

Just sourced out a place in Canada. Going to give them a call to see where the Canadian Warehouse is and see what the shipping fees are.

I just purchased some panels from them yesterday afternoon. Should arrive this week. I got some 2x4x2 panels in the microsuede fabric. Yes, I could have ordered the fiberglass and built it all myself..but this time, I just wanted it now and did not feel like building things.
I'll post my impressions when I get them later on this week.

Let me know how it goes Riker.

I won't be purchasing anytime soon as I am still in the beginning stages of my basement/ht reno.
