Here's a tip - if you want only a semi-permanent installation discard the included Tubetack caulk and get some DAP Seal 'n Peel. [...] Holds these up just fine, and will peel away without damaging the paint or drywall should I chose to remove them.
I'm going to disagree with the reviewer who recommended using DAP Seal 'n' Peel, though, if you want to preserve the paint behind the foam. Seal 'n' Peel will hold these panels up, but it will also leave stains. Instead, I suggest you buy some foam board (several brands, sizes, and quantities available here at Amazon), glue the Auralex panels to the foam board, then hang the foam boards as you would a picture.
There are several benefits to this.
1) No stains, of course.
2) Since you're almost always going to be hanging these 1x1 squares together in arrays, it's much, much easier to get them straight and square by gluing them up on horizontal foamboard than gluing them one by one to the wall, where they're going to want to slide. Let gravity work for you instead of against.
3) It's also easier to then get these foamboard-backed units to hang straight on the wall (or at angles, if you prefer), by using good ol' picture-hanging technology.
4) If you wanted to get fancy, you could frame the foamboard-backed units.
5) You could also suspend the units from the ceiling or from curtain or picture rods, so there is space between the back and the wall, which will give you a bit more low-frequency reach.
By the way, just so you can plan accurately: these squares are not actually 12" x 12". They're 11.75" x 11.75". Hard to believe they lose an entire .25" cutting this stuff, so I'm not sure why they're so far off.
We live near a busy street and my wife works nights/sleeps days. The traffic noise was relegating her to the couch, so I thought a long while about soundproofing the bedroom to help her out. The problem is that most soundproofing windows are extremely expensive and I didn't have a lot of jack to throw around, so then I got the idea about soundproofing with foam building the "picture frames."
I went online looking for pretty much precisely this material, and everything I was finding was hundreds of dollars. Imagine my surprise when I ran into this batch of 32 for $59! I jumped on it!
Well, I couldn't be happier. When my "picture frames" are in place (and they're held in by magnets, so it's really easy to just *click* and take them down to let in the sunshine) - the bedroom is like a TOMB. When the really big buses go by you can kinda feel the vibration in the house but the room itself is so quiet it's hard to believe. This stuff worked so well, I'd actually pay full price for it now, knowing how effective it is.
Although, I do need another shipment cause it just dented my small space of a room.
I had to pull the foam down and convert my studio to a nursery, and when i pulled the foam, the tubetak decided to take CHUNKS of drywall with it. I've spent the last 2 days patching holes in the drywall so i can repaint.
A review below mentions hanging on foam board.. This would work fine, or you can also use "handy panel" from home depot. Its like a giant sheet of balsa wood.
I'll buy this kit again when I have enough room to rebuild a studio or theater.

They do help to limit the sound you make. But they do not help with outside noise very much at all.Published 14 months ago by Parker
Simple but fantastic solution to enhanced audio. Placed on wall behind speakers, brings sound forward. Don't care that much for the appearance but worth it.Published on July 2, 2013 by KimberlyLO
