The foundation of our design process is based around the science of acoustics and advanced computer modeling to predict the reverb and decay time combined with the frequency response over time. Our philosophy is to remove the unwanted energy or redirect reflections into diffuse fields, or absorption that is targeted for the frequencies that are overly responsive and create even room response. The model will show all the modal behavior and areas that must be treated.
We then create a targeted plan to address the response and create an even and balanced room, using a large range of products which have all been tested and modeled to be able to combine the treatments and see their results. The starting point is to combine the panels, bass traps, diffusers and absorbers, that are based on a predictive model, until the model shows the desired result. The treatments are chosen to match the visual finishes, and based closely on the clients budget. As with most things, the more you can spend the better the performance and nicer the looks can be.
When we complete the project we field test the rooms, and can compare to the predictive model. Over time we have found exceptional results of nearly 97%.
