Acoustics First has announced a new addition to its Sonora line of acoustic panels: the Sonora LFC – Low-Frequency Control Panel. While visually identical to a Sonora 4-1/8” High-Impact Panel at first glance, it’s the engineering inside the panel that makes it unique.
The Sonora LFC uses a multi-density fiberglass core construction and a dampened resonant membrane to focus its attenuation on the bass frequencies, even below 125Hz. This configuration “rolls off” in the upper bands so space doesn’t become “dead” from over-absorbing high-frequency energy. By emphasizing the performance of controlling low frequencies, less broadband absorption is required to balance the acoustic environment, and thus, there is more acoustic energy left for diffusers to enrich the listening experience. For controlling the bass without sucking the life out of a room, the Sonora LFC Panel is engineered for low-frequency control.
About Acoustics First
The principals of Acoustics First® have been in the acoustics arena since the seventies when they introduced industrial foam as an acoustic panel for recording studios. Back then, everything had to be built by hand since there were no off-the-shelf acoustic solutions. We now supply many types of acoustical materials including acoustical foams, fabric wrapped panels, sound diffusers, noise barrier materials, acoustical fabrics, bass traps, and ceiling treatments. Sound control materials are not only restricted to use in the recording industry but are used in many applications including Home Entertainment Rooms, Music Rehearsal Spaces, Industrial Noise Control, Court Houses, Houses of Worship, Gymnasiums, Dog Kennels, Schools, Restaurants, Museums and much more.
Acoustics First will make every effort to help you determine the right sound control materials for your application.
