If you have sprinklers installed, hanging from the ceiling will not be a wise option, as they will block the action of the sprinklers. When choosing the size, you must consider cost-to-effect ratio by correlating it to your space.

When do You Need to Soundproof
If you are the owner of a large space that you use for a business like a
restaurant, gym, club, or factory, then your property will have lots of material
like glass, brick, stone, wood, metal, granite installed in it. These are usually
designed keeping the functional and visual appeal in mind; however, what is
often ignored is effects that each of these elements can produce on the overall
acoustics of a room. Unless you are ready to compromise with the look of the
room by covering some surfaces to absorb echo, sound absorbing panels are
your only refuge.
How to Choose The Best Soundproofing Panel
To bring down the echo levels in a room designed and decorated with a
specific view, the best option will be to install PVC baffles on the roof. These
can be either adhered to the ceiling or left hanging from the joists. If you have
sprinklers installed, hanging from the ceiling will not be a wise option, as they
will block the action of the sprinklers. When choosing the size, you must
consider cost-to-effect ratio by correlating it to your space. These panels have
to be such that they either accentuate the overall look of the room or blend in
smoothly with the decor.
Installing The Panels
Once you have made a choice on the type and quantity of panels that you
need, the next important question is finding a place to install them. Acoustical
sound absorbing panels do not have to be strictly limited to roofs. If you have
found a panel that compliments your interior well, you can get creative with
the placement. Surprisingly, you will notice that these panels will work with
the same efficiency, no matter the place of installation. Most people would
advice covering the hard surfaces first, as these act as reflective surfaces for
the sound energy and create an echo.
