DIFFUSORS: WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR
When it comes to the number of diffusors to be installed, there’s not much that can go wrong. For the sound propagation in a room, it’s practically impossible to install too many of them.
You cannot over-dampen a room or make it worse with diffusors. Most diffusors can be mounted directly on the wall. Many of our diffusors are glued directly to the wall. Heavier models can be mounted using the included mounting hardware.
When combining several acoustic elements while developing a room optimization concept, it’s best to avoid repeating a “chaotic pattern” too many times. For example, if you install too many of the same elements next to each other without changing things up, you’re creating a static pattern. This is undesirable (especially for large areas), because the reflections cannot be broken up homogeneously due to the larger distances. A combination of different diffusors, variations in their orientation or – even better – alternating diffusors and absorbers helps to solve this problem effectively.
With one-dimensional absorbers, you can achieve a two-dimensional effect by rotating every other diffusor by 90 degrees. This creates a two-dimensional structure that disperses the sound not just to the left and right, but also towards the ceiling and floor.
