IMO get it professionally framed, keep it out of the sun, display it prominently, and find something else to provide room treatments.
Treatements of the room sometimes actually are not related at all to room acoustics or even to RFI/EMI. Room acoustics and RFI/EMI have both been covered up the yin yang like forever, especially room acoustics. What hasn't been covered much at all is Morphic Fieids and how to get rid of the darn things. Of the products I sell related to room treatments only a smattering actually deal with room acoustics. The rest deal with what feng shui generally refresh to as "negative energy." Flying Saucers for Windows may or may not deal with RFI/EMI, I'm still collating. But Blue Meanies, Green Meanies, Quantum Temple Bell and Morphic Message Labels categorically DON'T fit into the room acoustics category or the RFI/EMI category.
no goats no glory
So...Geoffkait...I have to admit I have no idea what you're talking about. That doesn't mean much, b/c I barely understand much going on around me anyway. Are you being funny, or is there something else to tuning a room than taming runaway frequencies, isolating our electronics from vibrations, and proper cord placement? Is this all feng shui stuff? I'm generally familiar with the idea, but affecting sound quality???...that seems a stretch. But then, I would have thought fancy cables and isolation were voodoo until I experienced the effects myself. Always good to keep an open mind...at least for a while.

OK, fair enough. Lol Here are some intermediate level room treatments that might make more sense that have been controversial to varying degrees. Shakti Hallographs, Shun Mook Mpingo Discs, Marigo dots for windows and walls, crystals for room corners, walls and windows, Golden Sound Acoustic Discs for room corners, SteinMusic Harmonizer high frequency air molecule accelerator, Ultra Tweeters, Sugar Cubes and other tiny bowl acoustic resonators,
Geoff, don’t you have a product which would improve the sonic characteristics of his fantastic poster? If not, get on it.
Oh, now I get it. You guys are actually serious about this. In that case all the OP needs to do is cut the poster into the appropriate size squares and paste the squares onto the squares of the Skyline diffuser and place the Skyline diffuser between the speakers. Thus, the poster will appear as a flat surface to the listener AND act as a diffuser. Problem solved!
But in case this point wasn’t made before, 1 single panel won’t do much in a room, unless it’s right next to your head.
As part of a system of 6-10 panels, each does a part of the work. So as part of the entire room treatment, you may want to just keep the poster, and may be use museum quality plexiglass to cover it. It will be lighter than glass, look 99% as good and be a little less reflective. Compensate for it’s reflections by adding panels and diffusion elsewhere.
Art panels make the most sense when you are getting a series of them made. Like, if you had a set of movie posters printed, then you could set up 4-6 art panels and they'd look great.
So, I went the easy route. After a quick study online, I headed down to my local art supply and bought a 3x5 foot panel of 1/2 inch black foam board ($12) and a can of spray adhesive (appropriate for photo paper $7). Laid everything out on a flat area. Rolled the poster up on a 2 inch round sleeve. Sprayed the whole board and let it set for about a minute. Started unrolling and used a plastic spreader knife (4 inches wide) and went to work unrolling and pushing out the bubbles. I trimmed the excess board away and hung it on my wall with 2-sided tape. Perfect!? Well, not quite. My wife was the first to notice that the direction of the apparent sound on the photo was opposite the sound coming from my speakers. Could have put it on the opposite wall and fixed that, but a pesky thermostat complicated that idea. Oh well. But it looks great, and I'll get to enjoy it tonight when my buddy comes over for a listening session. May have to turn it up a little extra loud tonight to get the full effect!
Thanks for all the input.
