Product Description

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.

Ease of Use
Just what I needed!
Your general opinion of this product.
I bought three panels and installed them myself without any help in my studio that has a 12 foot concrete ceiling as well as exposed air ducts. I lowered them down to between 7 and 8 feet above the floor, which meant I had to go to the hardware store and purchase longer wire for the wires that came with the panel are too short. I don't consider this an issue in any way. A extremely worthwhile purchase in my particular situation.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
These panels are well made and superior to foam-type material. They look better too!
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Since I did the installation myself and by myself, it took about a full days work that included drilling holes into a 12 foot concrete ceiling. It was worth it.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
These panels created a far better listening environment for mixing. I would include a longer wire option.
How is the tone?
The sound changed instantly and for the better at my sitting position in front of my near field monitors.
How has it stood up over time?
I imagine they well last a long time due to the aluminum frame they are surrounded by.
