What is the goal of acoustic treatment?

The goal of acoustic treatment is to control reverberation in order to improve the acoustic quality within the space for a better listening experience, more pleasant conversation or calls, and more. This can be achieved mainly by using sound absorption or diffusion, with the right materials and placement. 

What is acoustic treatment, and why is it important?

Acoustic treatment involves the strategic placement of materials to control sound reflections, absorption, and diffusion within a space. It is essential to create an optimal acoustic environment, improving clarity, reducing noise, and enhancing overall audio quality.

How can acoustic treatment benefit my space?

Acoustic treatment offers several benefits, including the reduction of unwanted echoes, noise control, improved speech intelligibility, enhanced music quality, and the creation of a comfortable and balanced acoustic atmosphere tailored to your specific needs.

What are Some Common Acoustical Problems and How to Solve Them?

Acoustic problems arise when a room has more hard, reflective surfaces than absorbent surfaces. Sound waves bounce off these hard surfaces and produce an echo, making it difficult to understand speech or discussions. This issue is present in all manner of spaces, including offices, cafeterias, lobbies, museums and galleries, and restaurants. Acoustical treatment, however, can alleviate these problems.

How does acoustic treatment differ from soundproofing?

While soundproofing aims to block sound from entering or leaving a space, acoustic treatment focuses on optimizing the quality of sound within a room. Acoustic treatment manages reflections, absorption, and diffusion to create a balanced and pleasant acoustic environment without necessarily isolating the space from external sounds.

What types of spaces can benefit from acoustic treatment?

Acoustic treatment is versatile and beneficial for various spaces, including recording studios, home theaters, offices, restaurants, auditoriums, conference rooms, educational institutions, and residential spaces. Any environment where sound quality matters can benefit from acoustic treatment.

What materials are commonly used in acoustic treatment?

Acoustic treatment employs a range of materials, including acoustic panels, bass traps, diffusers, acoustic ceiling tiles, and acoustic fabric. The choice of materials depends on the specific acoustic challenges of the space and the desired outcome in terms of sound quality and aesthetics.

Is DIY Acoustical Treatment Possible?

While it's possible to do acoustical treatment yourself, hiring a professional has many advantages. Improving acoustics requires careful inspection of your space and consideration of the quantity, quality, and placement of absorbent materials. A professional can execute the right plan before purchasing or installing any materials, ensuring the best results for your space.

How Long Does it Take to See Results of Acoustic Treatment?

The effects of acoustic treatment are instant. Acoustic material absorbs sound waves like a sponge, so you will notice the change immediately. Acoustical treatment can last for many decades before needing to be replaced, providing long-lasting benefits, but painting over or covering the material can make it reflective and therefore ineffective. Choose acoustic surfaces that are not painted or covered, so that air and sound can be trapped inside them.

What Factors Should Determine the Level of Acoustical Treatment for a Space?

When determining the level of acoustical treatment, consider the space's use, desired results, and aesthetics. If the space is for music recording, podcasting, radio broadcasting, or anything that requires a specific level of acoustic clarity, err on the side of more acoustic coverage. For a cafeteria or a hotel lobby, less coverage is acceptable, and a balance between aesthetics and acoustics is necessary.

Can Acoustical Treatment be Modified if Needed?

Yes. Acoustical treatment can be removed or reinstalled if necessary. However, please contact our team if you want to relocate an acoustic installation.

Do You Offer Warranty or Guarantee for Acoustic Treatment?

Yes. Please ask your project manager for more information.

Are There Any Maintenance Requirements for Acoustical Treatment?

Acoustic panels require minimal maintenance, but they can be dusted. Major damage like water damage or spills must be assessed by professionals to determine the necessary repairs.

Acoustic Treatment Demonstration

In this video New York Soundproofing demonstrates the dramatic difference before - and after - installing our acoustic panels. This acoustic treatment project was at the Galaxy Visuals video studio - a state-of-the-art video studio in Brooklyn, NY.

The video room was turned from acoustically unusable to sounding exceptional! 

When our clients moved into the space, there was so much echo they couldn't do any video shoots with decent sound, or even understand each other speak.

New York Soundproofing to the rescue! We installed acoustic panels that matched the space and could fit in an area that is outside of the camera frame for a fantastic result.

This is only one example of many where we transform an unusable space into a great-sounding room fit for recording, listening and more.
