Membrane Absorbers

What are Membrane Absorbers?   Membrane absorbers, also known as panel and diaphragmatic absorbers, utilize the resonant properties of a membrane to absorb sound over a narrow frequency range. Engineers typically employ unperforated, limp panels of wood, pressed...

Porous Absorbers

When sound propagates in small spaces, such as the interconnected pores of a porous absorber, it loses energy. This is primarily due to viscous boundary layer effects. Air is a viscous fluid, and consequently, the friction with the pore walls dissipates the sound...

Acoustic Foam

Acoustic foam   Next, to fibreglass, acoustic foam is one of the most widely used materials for soundproofing. It is a cost-effective absorber, and a meter-square area of such treatment covering each of the reflection points can make a big difference to the...

Acoustic Fiberglass

Acoustic Fiberglass in Soundproofing   Fiberglass has to be one of the best choices when it comes to soundproofing. It is useful to soundproof walls, ceilings, and floors in closed spaces like music production studios. Acoustic fiberglass as a form of audio...

Helmholtz Resonator

What is a Helmholtz resonator?   The Helmholtz resonance is named after Hermann von Helmholtz, who created a resonator device in the 1850s. He used to identify the various frequencies and musical pitches present in music and other complex sounds. Helmholtz...

Ceiling Clouds

What are Ceiling clouds?   Ceiling clouds (or tiles) are a type of soundproofing objects. Producers and sound engineers use them in music production studios as well as in other spaces to effectively reduce reflected sound in large and open environments as well as...
