From time to time, we have folks who require a good dose of sound absorption for their space, but desire a less intrusive look than that of ‘standard’ acoustical panels. For situations like this our Tone Tiles® are often the perfect solution. Although these panels are paintable and printable, when left in their ‘unfinished’ state they have a soft white color which is very subtle and tends to blend in well with many different environments. Here are a couple of pics from a recent ceiling installation.
As you can see, the panels almost disappear into the ceiling!
Back in the summer of 2015 we had a good time stuffing a bunch of our Model D Art Diffusors® into an empty storage closet and making a bunch of racket. The results were recorded, with the help of our friend Binaural Bob and the resulting data provided some interesting insights.
Well, Binaural Bob is back! This time we had a larger room than before (10’x9’x8’), and experimented with wider variety of sounds and treatment options. While this is obviously not the same as a controlled laboratory test, it does have a certain ‘real world’ flavor that’s relatable.
For best results, turn off any compression/effects and listen on headphones.

Season’s Greetings from Acoustics First!
Acoustics First would like to offer this Do-It-Yourself gift idea to all of our readers this year.
If you’ve got a creative painting habit, give a customized gift that not only shows your creative talents, but also helps to improve the sound of the room!
Above is a festive holiday painting on one of our 1’x2′ Tone Tiles™.
Want to go a little bigger? We also have 2’x3′ Tone Tiles™ in Stock.
A Second Idea is to get a photo printed on a Tone Tile™.
How about “posting” that photo to the “wall” of your living room, and have a great conversation piece as well as improved acoustics – at the same time !
Season’s Greetings and Happy Gift Giving!

For Immediate Release
Acoustic First Ceiling Tiles get a face lift for the perfect fit to any application.
Acoustics First® has expanded their line of acoustical ceiling tiles allowing you to dress up any ceiling grid with a generous number of finish options. The legacy line of Sonora® ceiling tiles includes fabric faced ceiling tiles in either the standard square edge or a tegular edge that reveals below the grid. These tiles are available in a multitude of fabric colors and can be utilized in a wide range of applications to provide an upscale ceiling system that looks as good as it sounds. If you are looking for the absence of color, there are now two white options. The Sonora® UltraWHITE facing provides a basic smooth white finish while the Sonora® Nubby tile provides a texture white appearance. White ceiling tiles are an excellent choice for areas where a seamless look is desired and maintaining a room that is both bright and vibrant. Alternatively, if your application requires the ceiling to disappear, a black scrim version is also available. These black scrim ceiling tiles are a popular choice for public theaters, home theaters, restaurants or any application where a dark ceiling is desired. Additionally, choose from either a PVC faced or encapsulated ceiling tile if your application requires a wipe-able surface for resistance to liquids and dirt. Test labs, animal shelters, restaurants and similar facilities may require their ceiling tiles to be cleaned on a regular basis. In addition the ample amount of absorptive ceiling tiles, Acoustics First® also carries a wide range of diffusive ceiling tiles including the patented Art Diffusor® Model C and Model F.
