New acoustic treatment options from Vicoustic!

by ct_acoustic_frontier July 06, 2022

Acoustic Frontiers is very happy to announce the immediate availability of Vicoustic's lineup in the USA! Vicoustic manufacture a wide range of acoustic treatment including absorbers, diffusors and combination absorber / diffusors. A lot of their products include real wood with a number of different finishes. We think they look great and could easily work in a multi-purpose family room as well as adding some architectural interest to a dedicated listening or home theater space. Vicoustic's diffusor line up is perhaps the best in the business. They make both 1D and 2D diffusors. A 1D scatters sound in only one plane - either horizontal or vertical whereas a 2D scatters sound in two planes. Their entry level diffusors are made of expanded polystyrene (EPS) in a choice of white, grey or black and are available in economical multi-unit boxes:  /><img class=Vicoustic MultiFuser DC2 - a 2'x2', 6" deep, 2D QRD diffusor. The DC2 is basically a RPG Skyline at 1/3rd of the cost! Perfect for ceiling use in large arrays and towards the rear of the room.
  • Vicoustic Trap Fuser - a 2'x2', 6" deep, 1D QRD diffusor. This comes in two 2'x1' parts which allows individual sections to be rotated allowing creation of very large diffusion arrays without downsides. The benefit of a 1D unit is that the sound energy can be kept in the lateral plane when placed on a wall rather than scattering it up to the ceiling or floor.
  •  /><img class=Vicoustic Poly Fuser - a 2'x2', 5" deep hemispherical poly that comes in wenge, white, nordik (a blond wood finish), cherry or light brown. Polys are great for use on sidewalls and they are acoustically 'benign' which means you can sit a lot closer to them than you can to QRD diffusors. The Poly Fuser comes in a multi-unit box and the rear cavity is damped with a layer of acoustic foam for additional low-mid frequency absorption.
  • Vicoustic PolyFuser QR - a 2'x2', 6" deep 1D QRD / poly diffusor hybrid. This is a very interesting product that is a QRD in one plane and a poly diffusor in the other. Available in black, white, light brown, nodik and cherry finishes.
  • Vicoustic MultiFuser Wood 32 - a 2'x2', 4" deep, 2D QRD diffusor. This one is made from solid wood and comes in black, white or light brown. It comes in two 2'x1' parts. These units look great, almost like a sculpture, and they work very well on the front wall between the speakers, next to the listening position on the side wall or on the rear walls.
  • Vicoustic MultiFuser Wood 64 - a 2'x2', 6" deep version of the product above.

    Room Correction: A Primer

    by Nyal Mellor July 28, 2022 0 Comments

    Much confusion still exists about what a room correction product does, what problems it can (and cannot) solve and therefore its 'place' in a modern high quality sound reproduction system. Part of the challenge of understanding room correction is that it requires a reasonable level of understanding of sound quality, acoustic science, acoustic measurement and psychoacoustics (how humans perceive sound). The majority of the articles I have read online or in print magazines do not cover the fundamentals in enough depth to allow the curious and committed reader a chance to understand room correction on anything more than a cursory level. By the end of this article I hope that you will have learnt enough to judge for yourself what room correction can and cannot do and how best to apply it in the context of a world class music or home theater system.
