I am trying to design an enclosure but can’t decide on the material. Priority of course is soundproofing, but at the same time the unit will be in a room in the apartment that occasionally may be used by guests so it has to look pretty.
Transparent enclosures would be pretty, but will it hold sound better than Mdf or plywood? The latter also has the option of gluing soundproofing materials on them which is not practical for transparent panels. Can anyone with glass enclosures share if the properties of plexiglass et al is good enough if cost isn’t an issue?
Added detail: I plan to use aluminum rails (ie misumi frames) for the frame as I don’t trust my carpentry work enough to make a symmetric box, and slide the panel in the slots in the rails.
