Soundproofing

Soundproofing, also known as sound blocking, refers to insulated materials that prevent the passage of sound. Soundproofing materials tend to be heavy, solid, dense and thick and it is a very useful solution when dealing with unwanted noise. Cinemas, TV and radio stations, as well theatres frequently have sound blocking systems within their facilities.  Soundproofing…

Bass Traps

A bass trap is a device that is used to improve the response of the low frequency in a room. Sound engineers and music producers often use bass traps to lessen the low-frequency resonance. They also employ them in large studios and small spaces to flatten the low-frequency response, as well as to reduce modal…

Acoustic Board

An acoustic board is an object made of sound-absorbing materials that are inserted between two porous outer walls. When the sound passes through the acoustic board, its intensity decreases. It’s worth mentioning that the production of heat energy balances the loss of sound energy. Acoustic boards are employed in diverse environments such as libraries, rooms,…

Reflection Filters

Reflection filters, also known as pop shield or pop screen filters, are devices that are capable of offering effective absorption of sounds. Reflection filters catch and absorb sounds that are received directly from the vocalist. These filters help reduce the amount of energy that enters a room, as well as the amount of energy that…

Ceiling Clouds

Ceiling clouds, also known as tiles, are a type of soundproofing device that is used by producers and sound engineers inside music production studios. Ceiling clouds are capable of delimiting spaces, as well as reducing reflected sounds in open environments. There are several types of ceiling clouds. Acoustical ceiling tiles are small and can be…

Helmholtz Resonator

The Helmholtz resonator is a device that involves a rigid spherical container with a small neck. In order to produce sound, the Helmholtz resonator is built in a specific way. Physically, this device has a small hole in one end and a larger hole in the other end. The Helmholtz resonator is named after Hermann…

Acoustic Fiberglass

Acoustic fibreglass is made of tiny particles of compressed glass and it is widely used as an audio insulation material; some manufacturers use recycled glass to produce it. Fibreglass is essential when it comes to soundproofing. To create fibreglass, a portion of sand is heated and then spun on high speeds. The most common forms…

Acoustic Foam

Acoustic foam is a lightweight material made from a mixture of polyurethane foam, polyether, polyester, and melamine foam. Acoustic foam is one of the most frequently used materials for soundproofing. Acoustic foam is a cost-effective absorber that is capable of making significant differences regarding the clarity of the speaker tone. When the setup is small…

Porous Absorbers

Due to viscous boundary layer effects, when a sound spreads in a small space, it loses energy. Energy is also lost when the sound moves through irregular pores and due to thermal conduction from the air to the absorber material. This effect is more noticeable at lower frequencies. Air is a viscous fluid, so the…

Membrane Absorbers

Membrane absorbers, also known as panel absorbers and diaphragmatic absorbers, use the resonant qualities of a membrane to absorb sound over a narrow frequency range. Membrane absorbers are made of pressed wood fibres, soft panels, as well as rigid or semi-rigid materials such as plastic. The panel will likely vibrate and produce sound waves when…
