At this week's Musikmesse 2011 (Hall 5.1, Stand D43—the ICM booth), Auralex Acoustics will launch the Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series, its first line of acoustical products made from 100-percent ecologically friendly bamboo. The new line comprises the WavePrism, WaveLens, QuadraTec, Peak Pyramid Diffusor and KeyPacs.
“As a green alternative to traditional hardwood, Auralex’s new Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusor Series is the perfect addition to any recording/listening space that requires absorption treatment,” says Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex Acoustics.
The Auralex WavePrism is designed to eliminate flutter echoes and other acoustical anomalies without removing acoustical energy from the space. Its closed box design configuration disperses sound evenly to create a more consistent listening or recording environment. The WavePrism is sized to drop into a suspended ceiling grid, or can be wall mounted using mechanical fasteners.
Auralex WaveLens’ open-boxed design scatters and redirects acoustical energy. The WaveLens can be beneficial in numerous applications as it can create a “large sound” in a small room, as well as optimize existing absorption panels by redirecting the sound energy.
The QuadraTec’s unique tiered design promises excellent scattering properties, resulting in a warm, musical character to the dispersed sound. The nested pair offers two diffusion tools that, when used in combination with each other, are said to result in a more spacious feel in any room. The lightweight design allows QuadraTec diffusers to be placed in suspended ceiling grids or attached to wall surfaces with mechanical fasteners.
Auralex’s Peak Pyramid Diffusor is optimized to provide high-quality sound diffusion while also doubling as an effective bass trap when filled with absorptive material. These lightweight, sturdy pyramid-shaped diffusors are sized so that they can be easily dropped into a suspended ceiling grid or installed onto wall surfaces using mechanical fasteners.
Auralex Keypacs Star
Auralex designed KeyPacs to be mounted to the face of absorptive panels such as Auralex’s ProPanels or Studiofoam. These panels are designed to tune absorption treatment to be more effective in the low and midrange, without killing off the higher frequencies, to yield a room that is well balanced across the frequency range. KeyPacs are available in three configurations—9 Hole, Bubble and Star.
Finally, Auralex states that its Sustain Bamboo Sound Diffusors can be helpful in achieving LEED certification, specifically in the Materials & Resources category.
