About to  make bass trap measuring 2'X4' the thickness of the rockwool available is 50mm dapat ba pagpatungin ko ung 2 block para to make it 100mm mas effective ba ung makapal,

YES.  Only problem is 100 mm goes down only to a limited frequency range.  To build an effective bass trap that goes down to 60 hz., you need a lot of space. 

ok lang ba na lagyan ng 1/8 plywood ung likod ng frame na gagawin ko.

YES

When mounting the frame to the wall is there a standard height from the floor or kailangan nasa center ng floor and ceiling

Earheight.

It will not rattle, unless they are not properly sealed and you put a lot of low frequency energy into the room.  Caulk the edges well with silicon sealant.  Make sure it is sealed well.

Putting carpet as final finish on two walls and flooring will leave the room deficient of high frequencies.  Your room will be boomy.  You have to control the bass as well.  Carpet does not absorb low frequencies; absorbs effectively from 1 khz. up.

Hello acoustic enthusiasts.
Little by little, I managed to put up a simple home mixing or a vocal tracking corner(not even a room).
I was wondering what you're gonna do to treat the acoustics with very minimal budget. Being honest here. Or maybe you think nothing needs to be done. Sorry, budget goes to the baby po kasi.
I'm kinda ok listening to the audio through the monitors. I think di pa best ung napapakinggan ko.
The issue is kapag pumalakpak ka me sound na "toing". 
Sa picture nakalagay kung anong material ang mga walls. Wooden floor po as you can see partially sa pic. Plywood ceiling din. On the right side when you're facing the monitors ay ang remaining space ng room. Maliit lang. Mga malaki ng konti sa nasakop kong lugar. Bintana ang dulo. Ang acoustic treatment ko sa side na un ay ang sinampay. Haha.
Actually, sa likod ng chair pwede rin me sinampay. Kung maraming nilabhan.  :-D.
Pls. let me hear your thoughts. Thank you & God bless.

Try Ace hardware. But I'm not sure if they have the rubber type. they do have the foam type though.

Are the ones available in ACE HARDWARE enough for soundproofing?

I bought the Raven RP48 (6mm Height, P519.75 /5m) But i don't think this is enough. Baka po may iba pa kayong idea?

I think Raven nga yun nakita ko. Can't think of any na other than to go the DIY route by using rubber interiors sliced into strips or the rubberized plastic used in aluminum windows.

Yes.  Better not to move in.  You will spend a lot of money soundproofing.

Can anybody suggest a treatment for large glass windows in a room that's going to have a piano and amplified guitars?  Its our den.  Kid plays classical piano; Spouse plays in a band in his spare time; I have a pretty serious Hi-Fi habit.  50 sqm, 11ft ceiling, hardwood floors.  2 windows, both 10 ft W x 8 ft H, with smaller windows above them.  Double glass sliding doors in the same room, also 10 x 8ft.  Had looked at double honeycomb shades under thermal insulated acoustic curtains, but the cheapest shades are 750 per sq.foot.  A bit much.  I don't know about using Roman shades instead under the acoustic curtains-- but do we have the acoustic materials for a custom job?  The curtains can be imported in a set size, but the shades have to be customized.  I looked at Audimute, but they are too cumbersome to deploy. A more palatable version of mass loaded vinyl product would be great, but can't find any. Any ideas or referrals would be most welcome!

Not an easy feat.  Mass loaded vinyl is great as a sandwich between wall sheets.  Acoustic curtains?  They do not stop sound but absorb high frequencies.  The best is to cover your entire room, i. e., ceiling + 4 walls with gypsum walls, the X variety or the fire retardant kind because of its mas weight - good for stopping sound.  Then, you have to calculate the room's RT60 and treat the room based on your calcs and desired room response.  Otherwise it might be too damped or it might be bass heavy, with all the HF sucked in.  Then you have a big problem.  A bit expensive, cumbersome and problematic.  Then you have to put split type air con.  More cost.  Sound proofing and acoustic conditioning is not cheap at all.
