Auralex pArtScience AudioTile ShockWave tames the acoustics o a room to help you capture and reproduce high-quality audio performances. AudioTile does all this while offering eye-catching designs that make any room stand out from the rest.
While AudioTile's coolness factor is high, there is still plenty of science behind the art. Varying thickness built into each patent-pending AudioTile delivers excellent broadband absorption, while the design patterns act as a unique means of blending absorption, diffusion, and reflection for optimum acoustical balance tailored to any room.
As AudioTile's tessellated panels are spread out, broadband absorption is maximized and the areas of exposed hard surface provide high frequency scattering. By doing this, several major goals are accomplished: providing a room with good low frequency control, creating a very tight sound in areas where drums or amplifiers might be placed, and simultaneously offering a nice reverberant sound in upper areas where overhead and/or ambient room microphones would be placed.
This design approach can give a room a very natural-sounding ambience while controlling undesirable acoustical anomalies. AudioTile is perfect for a wide variety of aesthetic and acoustical environments. The result is a well-controlled space essentially void of reflection issues, but which is not a "dead space", and a frequency response with minimal low-frequency modal concerns.
For voice, it can yield a "locked-on" fundamental of the voice talent- no hollowness, or resonance - simply a clear-open response. This is exceptionally suited for today's broadcast standards that require the highest quality mics, mic preamps and processing. And there is still more science behind this great product: AudioTile uses the proprietary Studiofoam formula. It's the same formula that tens of thousands of customers have entrusted to deliver Studiofoam's superior durability and Class B flame retardancy for the past 25 years.
Back to the art part: AudioTile designs are fun and exciting and the possibilities are almost endless for you to create one-of-a- kind designs that fit the "personality" of your room.
For installation, AudioTile requires Auralex Foamtak spray adhesive (sold separately, - see #422605), which allows you to remove the foam later. For more permanent installation use Tubetak (sold separately - see #422606) or Tubetak Pro liquid adhesive applicators (sold separately - see #472436).
1 Foamtak covers up to 96 square feet.
1 Tubetak/Tubetak Pro covers up to 24 square feet.
