Products for home cinema

Modern trends in acoustics are perhaps most noticeable in the area of ​​households and home theaters. From the time when rooms were filled with large and heavy furniture, we have now moved towards minimizing everything from furniture to the number of items in the space. Therefore, the reverberation time in households and home theaters is increasing rapidly, which was not necessary to fight against in the past. It is therefore necessary to consider at least some options for minimizing this negative phenomenon.

The approach depends mainly on the listener's demands. It is easier for a listener who only requires echo suppression in the room to be able to communicate with another person without any problems. A more demanding listener, often a music lover, should of course resort to a more sophisticated solution. This is where the initial analysis of the spaces, measuring the level of noise and sound propagation, and calculating the precise amount and type of products needed in the space come into play.

Specification of Products Suitable for Application in Home Theaters:

  • acoustic efficiency at all frequencies
  • high design requirements
  • cost-effective solution

If you want to enjoy music and don't want to invest in an acoustic design, here are some tips for choosing and arranging a room for music listening

  • Try to choose a room whose proportions of individual sides will not form whole multiples
  • faviconChoose equipment suitable for the volume of the room. In this case, it is clear that sometimes less is truly a better option.
  • faviconPlace the speakers symmetrically to the listening axis at the same distance from the listener so that the individual axes form the sides of an equilateral triangle (stereo system).
  • faviconNever place the speakers directly against the wall; try to achieve a distance of at least 1m if possible.
  • faviconChoose acoustic elements for the room according to your taste (Akufon, Soundpix, etc.).
  • faviconChoose suitable curtains for the windows to prevent reflections from glass surfaces.
  • faviconEvenly distribute acoustic elements on the walls. If possible, maintain symmetry.

Using materials for home theaters is demanding in terms of aesthetic execution in connection with the final effect. It is not possible to prescribe the exact type and location of cladding, as each room is different. Similarly, the aesthetic visual requirements of the owner are also different.

Several Basic Tips for Designers

  • If we are trying to suppress the reverberation coming from surrounding walls, we have several ways to address this negative phenomenon. General solutions are offered by panels Modular, which can be supplied in various shapes, sizes, and with various surface finishes. If you want to emphasize the beauty of wood in the room, wooden panels Akufon can be used. An aesthetic option for wall treatment is the application of acoustic images Soundpix or walls imitating bricks Brick Stone. Another installation-friendly solution is the application of a silent wall Silent Tex. If we want to soundproof the home theater from surrounding rooms, we can use the product Soundshield or Sileum to increase the soundproofing of the walls.
  • faviconSimilarly to walls, there are several options for sound suppression in ceilings in household and home theater spaces. Among the simplest solutions is the application of Cassettes, which we offer in various shapes, colors, and sizes. An aesthetic option is the application of Clouds, which are simplified panels applied to the ceiling.
  • faviconSuppressing reverberation on walls and ceilings may not always be sufficient. At this stage, we can proceed with the installation of diffusers, resonators, and bass traps to suppress specific frequencies. For the suppression of low frequencies, we can use Modular Basstrap, Basstrap Corner, Basstrap Column, Resonator, or Resonant Panel.
