It's not the only one I can get, they also sell 3, 4, 5mm, etc and I can choose between chipboard, osb, mdf.

I think the chipboard is less dense.
Maybe 3mm will be better as a core because it's more flexible and will have less mass per m2. What do you think?

Also is it better to design the width of the panels in a way that they interfere with my measured frequency responce?
i.e. the fλ/4 and 3fλ/4 falls right on peak frequencies, and fλ/2 on dips?
Of course keeping a variation on sizes.

Not really necessary. I just try to make them as large as I can fit in. As the saying goes "size matters"...

Good news, searching for the right chipboard as an alternative, i did found the actual think I need!

It's homasote indeed!

The company selling it renamed it to "insulite", here in Greece, that's why i couldn't find it!

They are out of stock for the 12.5mm, but they got plenty of 10mm sheets, so I will go with that!
