I've no idea how many, or how large and deep, your makeshift traps we're, but others have already pointed out that controlling low frequencies with rockwool traps is not easy, and to be effective they need to be REALLY BIG AND DEEP.
So rather than buy rock wool and go to all that effort of putting wood etc together.....Im just going to buy a couple of traps from Thomann.
I dont know the Thomann traps of which you speak, but my advice would be: buy with care! There are an awful lot of companies offering 'bass traps' that perform very poorly. Check the absorption coefficient numbers for frequencies in the range you need to control to ensure the panel will do what you expect...
