    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   Please don’t say soundproofing, if you mean room treatment – and vice versa. I’m happy more people are realizing the influence acoustics has on their listening (and viewing) experience. I know the room is the final component in all entertainment systems (and also the first component, if you’re a musician or recording engineer), and that message is reaching farther every day. So that’s good, right? As with all things, a little info can be dangerous.… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics has provided a key component of an innovative installation – known as “Silent Room” – at the 2016 South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas, which took place from around March 11 to 20. Those who have experienced South By Southwest know that it can quickly coalesce into a haze of noise over the busy 10 days, so Dutch artist Simon Heijdens created “Silent Room,” an anechoic space filtering out any sound or color. Located in the… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   It’s a truism in standards-testing industries: you can only test for parameters for which you have tests. In the acoustics business that means testing is limited to measurement values which have accurate and repeatable tests, like sound pressure. This is especially important when you consider that hearing – our system of ears and brain – is highly complex, and some sound-perception functions have no equivalent in current test methodologies. Or, put more simply, you can’t… View this story

    The Northeastern U.S. offers many beautiful churches, from Gothic-style buildings to old fashioned meetinghouses. But a true European-style cathedral like the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Waterbury, Connecticut, is a rarity. The demanding aesthetic and acoustical requirements were key reasons Peter Scandone, Jr., president of New Haven systems integrator PASCOM Sound, chose a Renkus-Heinz Iconyx Gen5 IC32-RN digitally steered line array as the heart of the new system. “I’ve been working in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception for… View this story

    Courtesy of Acoustic Geometry.   Because physical space – a room – is the final and often most influential component in any audio system, understanding the basics of acoustics is a great way to start improving the sound of your system. Whether you’re a musician, an audio professional, an audiophile, a home-theater owner, or simply interested in sound, knowing more about how acoustics work will be greatly helpful. The new video release is called “An Acoustic Primer”, it runs just… View this story

    Since 1833, Antwerp City Brewery’s De Koninck manufacturing site has brewed the famous “Bolleke” beer. The premises recently underwent significant renovations to open the facility to tours, creating a visitor experience in keeping with the quality long established by their brew masters. In late 2015 they opened an experience room to tell the story of their famous Belgian Beers, utilizing much needed acoustical treatment from Primacoustics. During the renovation process there emerged a hiccup in their plans and it had… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics has introduced GeoFusor, a new sound diffusor based on the geodesic dome pattern designed to address standing waves and flutter echo without removing acoustic energy.
