What is a sound absorbing panel?
First of all, let’s talk about a sound absorbing panel that is often used for sound quality improvement.
A sound absorbing panel is a plate-like material which literally absorbs sound and suppresses reflection. Using sound absorbing panels allows you to smoke incoming sounds, but it is sometimes scarce in sound insulation performance, so you need to be careful. Even if you want to enjoy the sound, even if you want to improve the uncomfortable sound, you can make a comfortable sound environment by using the sound absorbing panel well.
Sound absorbing panel useful in various cases
Sound absorbing panels are active in the following cases.
○ When you want to enjoy audio and music in your room etc.
○ In an environment such as an office where it is difficult to hear voices with miscellaneous sounds
○ Incorporate it as a measure when the echo sound of mechanical sound is particularly large in factories
○ To improve sound environment at teaching and educational sites such as music classrooms and schools
How to use sound absorbing panels for improving sound such as audio and home theater
Among the examples above, the sound absorbing panel is effective especially when you want to enjoy audio related and music. I would like to enumerate in what place it is effective to install sound absorbing material here.
○ Behind the speaker
There are various types of speakers, but the sound is distributed not only in front but also in all directions. When installing speakers, in most cases there should be things that will return sound, such as walls and windows behind. By placing a sound absorbing panel on that wall or window, you can eliminate unnecessary reflected sound.
○ Corner part of the room
Sound absorbing panels are very effective, especially at the corners of the room, as the sound tends to accumulate. It may be difficult to take measures against all sides, but if you take measures against only the corners where the walls intersect three, you can eliminate sounds like mixed standing waves.
○ Between the listening position and the speaker
For the same reason as above, installation on the wall between the listening position and the speaker is also effective. It is a place where I want to suppress as much as possible the sound that spreads out as it travels through the wall.
Besides, it may be good to prevent sounds from interfering with each other by installing them between speakers and speakers, or to take measures against the floor / ceiling to prevent reflection in the vertical direction.
