ASI's Acoustical Room Kit Review on Action On Film
Independent Filmmaker and Director Del Weston reviews the Acoustical Room Kit from Acoustical Solutions.
Acoustical Room Kits come with the perfect number of decorative sound absorbing acoustical wall panels for your small, medium, or large room in ten standard colors, ready to ship in 2-3 days. This easy to install product is ideal for improving sound intelligibility in mixing rooms and production studios.
Acoustic panels will reduce room reverberation and flutter echo, which improves the sound quality and increases speech intelligibility. A room with enhanced acoustics provides a much more functional and productive space. There is a simple method you can use to determine if your room would benefit from treatment. Just stand in the room and clap your hands. You will quickly notice if sound is bouncing or fluttering throughout the space. Most rooms are constructed without acoustics in mind. They have parallel walls with lots of flat, hard surfaces. In an untreated room, conversations and sound will reverberate and rebound throughout the space, generating garbled, harsh sound. This makes discussions, conference calls, and mixing or listening to music difficult. Installing acoustically absorptive panels will prevent the sound from reflecting and bouncing around the room.
The acoustic panel and room kits are manufactured using a high density, 6-7 pound per cubic foot acoustical fiberglass board. The fibrous core material acts like a sponge to trap sound within the material. Friction between the fibers and the air cause the sound waves to lose their energy and do not reflect back into the room. The fiberglass core is stylishly finished with an acoustically transparent, 100% recycled fabric that is bonded to the core to provide a superior long lasting finished product. Once installed on the walls of the room, the panels will look as good as they sound.
