AT screen: What should be behind?

Dedicated Theater Design & Construction - www.avsforum.com
I finally decided to go for an AT screen to place my LCR's in one parallel line behind the screen. I have got THX Ultra 2 speakers for direct wall installation (Jamo D600) so they should be fine to do the job!

I am planning to go for a woven screen from Screen Excellence (from my research built alike to Seymour on the American market) so I understood that I have to sound proof the area behind the screen not to get unnecessary reflections. In my naive mind I thought just build an easy fake wall the size of my screen, attach the speakers to the wall and damp the rest inside of this wall with Basotect or anything similar.

When I researched a bit more I found the idea of baffle walls and their advantages where I have to admit I could not really get all the benefits versus my initial idea of just a fake wall! Further I could find some very nice examples of baffle walls and their design in Google but honestly dont have a clue how to design it. To me it looks like a big grid of shelves which is damped to the back wall, speakers cutouts are left open anything else covered first with MDF and gypsum and finally with a 1 inch layer of sound proofing material. Is that all to it? How do I design the shelves which are not occupied by speakers.

Help most appreciated!
