Why are acoustic treatments important?
We spend so much time and money on the equipment, but often don't give the room itself any consideration.
Our perception of sound is a result of the interaction of multiple sound waves that reflect over the environment, and interaction between sound waves themselves.
When we hear a sound in a room, the first wave that reaches you is called the direct wave. As the name indicates, this wave has not interacted with the room, as it is directly from the emission source such as a loudspeaker. Next, you will hear the first reflections, that normally only reflect once. This is a first order reflection. Then, we perceive other sounds that are the result of numerous reflections from multiple surfaces. These reflection can be 2nd, 3rd or 4th orders, depending on the damping materials of the room such as curtains, rugs etc.
Reflected waves travel a longer path, taking longer to reach the listener. This can create an echo effect, in which we perceive two distinct sounds, caused by a time difference of over 80ms. This is what we want to resolve.
Artnovion offers many ways of improving acoustics. Absorption, where it removes energy from the room, reducing or eliminating reflections, or through diffusion, where incoming waves are scattered, distributing their energy over a larger area. Bass traps even out low frequencies by eliminating resonance.
