When you’re thinking of a project that involves a critical listening space, whether it’s ground-up new construction or an upgrade to an existing facility, it is always wise to start with acoustical planning. While acoustics may seem to be simply gluing some sculptured foam to the walls in a finished room, there is much, much more to it than that.
With new construction, bringing MediaRooms on board at the very beginning will pay you great dividends throughout the life of your room.
This is because we are then able to calculate the resonances of your planned room and
adjust its dimensions so that the resonances are distributed as evenly as possible in the frequency domain. It’s much easier and less expensive to do this in a CAD program, when you
can easily wipe the slate clean and start over.
It is a time-intensive process, but the extra effort is well worth it - it practically guarantees your room will sound good.
We repeat this process over and over until the best combination of dimensions is found. And once this is done, you almost have to work hard make the room sound bad!
So email or call MediaRooms today for the best acoustical expertise.
When you’re considering upgrading an existing room, you’ll do yourself a big favor when you bring us on from the start. MediaRooms can provide an Acoustical Analysis that will spotlight the anomalies of your room. Using this data, coupled with our knowledge and experience, we then design the best plan to do what needs to be done, avoid what is not needed, and save you money by going directly to the best solution.
This will protect you from wasting your money and efforts on fixing “problems” that may not need fixing, installing the wrong acoustical devices (perhaps in the wrong place), or using dubious products from music stores and equipment sellers that may not do what you think they will.
And if a sales person insists they know all about acoustics, consider this: If they know so much about it, why are they working in a music store ? After all, what kind of acoustical advice can you expect from someone who sells picks, plug-ins and pianos?
