Heya guys im gonna need a lot of materials to DIY build them myself for a small to medium sized room (unsure measurements yet, gonna move in soon). I'm looking at like minimum 8 inch acoustic panels 14 inch by 8 inch rectangles, at least 6 of these (first reflection points at the sides, and a cloud absorption panel at the ceiling, 2 each). No doubt the acoustic material will be the most expensive so I wana get this out of the way first. I'll probably just wrap them up in breathable fabric and do the wooden plywood frames myself.

To be clear; I just wana know where I can get acoustic materials like Owens Corning or Rockwool (or any other suitable materials for that matter) at wholesale prices since I'm probably gonna need quite a lot to make them into 8 inches (to absorb the low frequencies 100Hz and below).

You don't want rockwool in a breathable fabric in your room. It makes incredibly irritating dust. My parents house has it as roof insulation and I have to wear a mask and gloves to go near it.
You can seal it in plastic and still get the absorption.

Bass will go straight through a thin plastic sheet, like a plastic bag.
