Acoustic Geometry in Chaska, Minn., announces the newest addition to its Acoustic Bass Management (ABM) product line, the CornerSorber, which is set to begin shipping in early 2017. These corner bass absorbers use Mass-Loaded Vinyl (MLV) absorption membranes in a cutting-edge design that mitigates low-frequency room modes for the most accurate sound reproduction in a room. This system can be used in many applications, including recording and mastering studios, video production and post houses, audiophile listening rooms, home theaters, live-performance and event venues, concert halls and auditoriums.
Created by John Calder and Mark Stender of Acoustic Geometry, the ABM CornerSorber is a bass absorber design that allows maximum pressure-zone room-mode reduction due to close-corner placement. The bass absorber is beveled on two sides and the top, allowing a pair of CornerSorbers to be set up three inches from, and parallel with, each corner wall, either vertically or horizontally, for the most efficient and effective reduction of low-frequency room-mode pressure waves.
Acoustic Geometry’s ABM system allows for a high level of low-frequency performance when using both CornerSorbers and Curve Diffusors, which also feature accurately-tested low-frequency MLV membrane absorption. The combination has a complementary range of frequencies that produces consistent bass-energy absorption from 50 to 500 Hz. The CornerSorber’s form factor of 24x42 inches, with a 6-inch depth, allows both a small footprint and either vertical or horizontal orientation. With the Curve’s smooth phase-coherent diffusion, the combination of Curves and CornerSorbers are said to evenly diffuse frequencies above 500 Hz and evenly control frequencies below 500 Hz.
Various finishes are available, including black-stained oak (stock), custom stain and paint colors, several wood veneers (including clear-finish maple, cherry, and walnut), leather and brushed aluminum.
