Custom Sonora® Ceiling Clouds in NY!

Here are a few new pics, courtesy of one of our longtime associates in New York. For this facility, they installed several arrays of our Sonora Ceiling Clouds, some of them in custom trapezoidal shapes! Sonora Ceiling clouds are often a great option in facilities with high ceilings, but limited wall space.

Tone Tiles® – Double take.


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!

Binaural Bob Returns!

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 – 2014

Season’s Greetings from Acoustics First!

DIY Gift idea using Tone Tiles

DIY Gift idea using Tone Tiles™ and some Creativity!

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™.

Got a really great vacation photo or family photo on your phone?  Most phones today have pretty decent cameras, and if you have the right photo, a local printer may be near you that can clean it up and print it onto one of our Tone Tiles™.*

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!

– Acoustics First

* Don’t forget to ask your local printer if they have flatbed printing capabilities.
