Vicoustic room treatments
Vicoustic aims to improve the listening experience by improving room acoustics. Designers of HiFi loudspeakers put a great deal of effort into eliminating colorations and unwanted resonances in their products only to have poor room acoustics re-introduce resonances and time effect distortions reducing clarity, focus and realism. Vicoustic's absorbing and diffusing products are far more sophisticated in design and achieve results far exceeding homemade glass fiber and fabric attempts. The R&D department at the Lisbon Portugal base accurately tests and measures all the products at different frequencicies in a resizeable room that uses a 4-ton mechanical movable wall. The "controlled test lab" can be configured as a low frequency resonance chamber, a reverberation chamber, or an anechoic chamber. The combination of innovative designs and rigorous in-house testing makes Vicoustic a distinguished leader in acoustic treaments. These are serious acoustic treaments and as such are used in domestic, professional and public environments by leading corporations such as Microsoft, Sony, BBC and ITV, Facebook, SAE institute and many others.

Is it worth spending money on room treatments?

Room treatments are not just about perfectionistic measurement and intellectual analysis. How do you feel in an empty room? What about the effort needed to follow a conversation in a modern cafe with hard surfaces and no acoustic treatment? The more work our brains have to do to make sense of direct sounds from the reflected ones arriving very quickly after is tiring. So while generally most people are going to spend on the gear, even a modest amount of room treatment will add value to the listening experience and even the most expensive gear will only sound as good as the room. A few well-designed and well-placed panels can make a big difference. Vicoustic products are affordable becuase you can start off simply addressing first reflections and then move on to bass management as a next step.

These will certainly help but can only go so far, particularly in rooms with large hard surface areas of concrete, brick and glass. These items only absorb a certain band of frequencies, are not particulaly good diffusers and have little, if any, impact on bass because they are usually in the wrong place. You probably won't find many common items to go on the ceiling!

Bass traps prevent build-up of standing waves in rooms which not only cause uneven and out of control bass energy buil- up, but also mask dynamics and details of the mid and treble energy. Managing room acoustics affect how we perceive sound at all frequecies. Take a look at the range of Vicoustic products in the drop down above.

What about digital room correction systems?

Some home theater receivers might equalize out the most prominent bass frequencies in the listening position at one instance in time, and adjust the overall tonal balance of speakers. but adjusting the duration and amplitude of bass frequencies during the prolonged reverberation time of the standing waves built up in the room over time is another matter. They can not control sound once it has left the speakers. Clarity, focus and soundstage are all influenced by room effects over time.

Why Vicoustic?

Vicoustic products have a high level of fire retardancy and the striking visual designs are available in many different wood finishes and fabric colors. The consulting team design service offers computer simulations indicating the optimal position for the most appropriate products for a very reasonable fee. Done right room treatments will make your speakers dissappear allowing you to listen to music with less effort while hearing more of what is going on.
