With all the Diffusers on offer from Acoustics First® these days, this gem is sometimes overlooked: the QuadraPyramid™. Here’s an install pic of a few in the ceiling of a control room at the University of the Pacific!
There’s a reason why various pyramidal diffusers have been used for decades. They work, and they work well! The QuadraPyramid™ is our own take on this classic design, using four offset pyramids to create 16 angles of reflection on a single unit. Also, when mounted directly to a wall, these diffusers can double as a ‘mid-bass’ absorber, like in the project studio below.
This install pic shows a fantastic mix of products: Sound Channels® Wall Fabric, Sonora® Panels and Cloudscape® Baffles. Note how the Sound Channels fabric is used on the lower portion of the wall. Using a fabric like this is a great way to efficiently treat a large area of wall and is durable enough to take a beating from basketballs, volleyballs, etc. This installation also includes Sonora Panels on the upper portion of the wall, along with a generous helping of Cloudscape Baffles in the ceiling. Installing ceiling baffles in a dense pattern like this really helps tame the reverb in spaces with high ceilings! On a side note, all three of these products have a Class A fire rating and are great choices for public spaces, where fire codes are of paramount importance.
Using light-colored acoustical panels can be tricky. Getting them from production, to job site, to final installation, all while maintaining their bright clean appearance takes much care. Here are some install pics from a job one of our dealers installed for a museum in Nevada. For this job Sonora® Wall Panels, covered in White Guilford® of Maine fabric, were installed along the upper perimeter of the facility.
A helpful hint for handling or installing lighter colored acoustical panels is to have some white gloves handy for the unloading and installation process!
Acoustics First® will be back in New York for the 2018 AES/NAB show, October 17-19.
So, if you missed last year’s show, here’s your chance to stop by the Javits Center (Booth 553) and say hi to Cameron & Jim!
We recently received these wonderful installation pics from our friends at Big3 Studios in Florida. They redid the back wall in one of their control rooms using our Aeolian® Sound Diffusers. In a couple of the pics you can also see our Model C & Model F Art Diffusors® (black) in the ceiling!
