giant cut to fit closed cell stuff

I need it to stick in windows when the need arises but to be able to remove it and sit it in a corner. I don't need black paint, it would be nice if it is translucent to let some light in.

    Admittedly, I'm confused at this juncture.

    It took me a while to parse the title of this thread (which may be partly due to the earliness of the hour, and partly due to hypocaffeination). I finally decided that it was easier to just open and read it.

    Are you (the OP, that is) looking for sheet material? I mean, wouldn't that 3M heat-sealing stuff for windows be a good solution?

    This sort of thing:

    It's an extremely translucent black, I would say.

    oh, wait -- do you want it for sound deadening?!?

    I'd look at Grainger. If it exists, they ought to have it -- not cheap, but they ought to have it.

    Howzabout something like this?

    Heck, I'd be tempted to buy something like this just because, you know, it's called IMPACTO.

    He must be in a closed padded cell, sitting in a corner imagining a window, that he does not need to paint black.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    I think there's a song lyric in there someplace...

    As a quasi-academician, I know that Assistant Nonsense is the entry level, followed by Associate Nonsense and then, if tenure is granted, of course, Full Nonsense.

    More nonsensical than tenure in general is the Promotion and Tenure Advisory Committee at a particular college of the The University of Florida which will remain nameless. :p

    @afterburnt - just really heavy drapes on a rail where you can pull them back when you're not being a vampire might be the answer. This is what I did in my family room where one speaker sits next to a big window. Or I am I misunderstanding what you mean? If so, you need to speak to my wife, she would understand you.
    I started out with nothing and have most of it left.

    You guys crack me up, again. I want something to shove in a couple of windows to deaden sound but nothing permanent. I figured closed cell with it's bouncyness would work and I could take it down when I want to see the world ...ugh

    As implied above by @OleBoot, I think drapes would be a more practical - not to mention more aesthetic - 'solution'.

    I agree. It's good to have an open mind about closed cell stuff. And as for giant cuts, never, and I mean NEVER juggle chainsaws when they are running.

    3" thick fiberglass panels. Cut down to size and maybe screw some handles in them to easily take them down. This is what I did in my old room. No handles there though as they were permanent fixtures.

    Yes! I am having my son spray paint the Electric Lady Land cover on one of my walls. I have have him do that really grotesque King Crimson cover too.

    Skip is that stuff messy to cut?

    A bit. It isn’t that bad though. You definitely need to dress for the job.

    In the context of this thread, that last statement is too horrible to ponder.
