Control early reflections, flutter echo and help eliminate standing waves with the Primacoustic Stratus Broadband Ceiling Cloud Acoustic Panel! Place this above your console, listen position or other area where you want to reduce ambient sound and you will immediately notice a more controlled and intimate acoustic environment, larger sweet spot and reduced ear fatigue. Primacoustic designed the Stratus Broadband Ceiling Cloud to be used individually or to be linked with others to cover a wider area.
Primacoustic Stratus Broadband Ceiling Cloud Features
- Suspends over the console or listening position
- Attractive fabric wrapped glass wool panel
- Easy to assemble suspension hardware
- Eliminates floor to ceiling reflections
Attractive and very affordable, the Stratus ships in kit-form and is easily put together in minutes using a simple screw driver. The kit includes a 2 inch thick, 24x48 inch acoustic panel made from high density 6lb per cubic foot glass wool and suspension hardware. The glass wool is encapsulated with micromesh and the edges are resin treated to retain the minute fibres. For an attractive appearance, the panel is covered in an acoustically transparent fabric.
The suspension hardware of the Stratus consists of two light-weight aluminum rails and ‘L’ brackets that form a rigid frame around the panel. To hang the Stratus ceiling cloud, simply attach the included suspension wire to the frame. Hardware and fasteners for sheet-rock ceilings are included in the kit. Typically, the Stratus would be suspended above the console and clustered in an array spanning the width of your console and listening.
The Primacoustic Stratus absorbs sound energy by converting it to heat. Sound energy traveling via air vibrations penetrates the panel causing the minute glass fibres to vibrate and generate heat. This thermo-dynamic energy transfer effectively absorbs directional sound energy and prevents it from reflecting into the mix position.
By itself, the 2 inch thick glass wool panel is 100 percent effective for frequencies between 400Hz and 20kHz. To help control a broader frequency spectrum, the Stratus ceiling cloud panel may be angled to vary the air space between the Stratus and the ceiling. This allows the backing surface to also absorb reflections off the ceiling.
