Why are both absorptive and reflective panels offered?
Absorptive panelsMinimize reflected sound in the room. This results in clearer dialogue and tonal balance. Have you ever been in a theater and were unable to clearly hear the character"s voice or surround effects? Learn why this happens.
Reflective panelsAre intended for sound waves to impact and reflect the sound rather than absorb the sound back into the room. Most people only hear about "absorption" requirements for a home theater, but a fully treated room where acoustics are completely controlled will contain both elements to allow for a more immersive movie watching experience. Get the back story.
Why would I use 2" deep absorptive panels instead of 1"?Two-inch thick panels absorb a wider frequency of sound then one inch thick panels. One inch panels provide acceptable absorption for the average range of sounds, while two inch panels extend to lower frequencies. Two-inch panels do not stop bass from leaving the room. WHY NOT?
How do I know where to place my panels within a room and what kind to use?With the diversity of speaker systems available today matched with different shapes, sizes and surfaces of a proposed space it is challenging to offer specifications without first examining the elements as a whole. Acoustic Innovations can provide helpful consultation of Harmony panel placement, assuming the room dimensions, seating area, speaker types and placement are documented for review.
