Diffusers are used to treat sound reflections (also called echoes) in rooms. They are an great alternative or additional tool to complement sound absorption. Diffusers do not remove sound energy, but can be used to effectively reduce distinct echoes and reflections. The use of sound absorbers only can cause a dead sounding space, which can sound unnatural. Diffusers are used to control the sound in the room, while still leaving a live sounding space. The difference of the sound in a room, with properly placed diffusers has to be heard to be fully appreciated but suffice to say once you've worked with them, you'll never be happy without them again. Uuuuh, yes ... that's a good thing.
What's The Big Deal
Q-Series Diffusers work well visually, as they can be tiled to achieve the overall desired size. They create a great looking space, especially if they are off-set with contrasting background colours & used together with some of our absorbers.
Q-Series Diffusers are team players & work well alongside our sound absorbers such as the:

Where Should They be Used?
✪ Broadcast Studio's
✪ Home Cinema Rooms
✪ Hi-Fi Rooms
✪ Music Performance Venues
✪ Radio Stations - in the live rooms
✗ Closer than about 1,5m from the listening position.
Where Should't They Be Used?
✗ In the corners of a room. Rather use a bass trap or S10 Panel here to control the low frequency nodes which typically occur in the corners of small to medium sized rooms.
✗ At ground level - there's simply no point
✗ Where they could easily get bumped
✪ 600 x 600mm
✪ They are provided with a wall bracket for mounting - it's a simple DIY task.
How are They Installed?
✪ We offer installation in many areas of the country - check with your sales consultant. This could be particularly useful if the diffusers are only a small part of a bigger installation, which is typically the case.
