Advanced Acoustics Wave Studio Starter Kit - Small
What's In The Box?
Each Small Wave Studio Starter Kit contains 24 Mini Wave Acoustic Tiles and 4 2ft Wave Bass Traps. The 12" Mini Wave Acoustic Tile is a product which is precision CNC cut at our facility in the UK. Contained in a box are 24 individual acoustic foam tiles which are sized 305mm (12") by 305mm (12"). The acoustic tiles will cover a total area of 2.23sqm (24sqft). The Mini Wave Acoustic Tile has a peak thickness of 60mm. That combined with the huge surface area this profile generates results in superior absorption from the lower mid range frequencies upwards. The profile of the Mini Wave Acoustic Tile allows for a number of different layouts depending on your preference. The dimension of the bass traps are 305mm (12") wide and 610mm (24") long. The overall width of the face is 430mm. The exclusive design of the Wave Bass Trap means that there is huge surface area to catch and absorb errant soundwaves. The 2ft Wave Bass Trap is effective down to 40Hz. These acoustic kits are shipped out in boxes completely uncompressed form to allow you to install them immediately upon receiving them. This studio treatment kit is available in either Mid Grey or Dark Grey.
What Are The Benefits?
Our Advanced Acoustics Starter Kits are complete room packages designed to be a starting point for the treatment of a given space. The bigger the room, the more kits you'll need. All the products are available individually so you can supplement the kit with an extra pack of tiles or a few extra Bass Traps if you need them.
The Mini Wave is a precision cut acoustic tile which matches perfectly with our very popular Wave Bass Traps. The profile of this tile is unique and offers huge surface area when compared to other profiled tiles of the same size. The Wave Bass Traps are one of a kind. We spent a considerable amount of time developing, testing and perfecting this profile.
We think this is one of the most striking and impressive looking bass traps on the market and they match perfectly with our Mini Wave Acoustic Tiles. With the Wave Bass Traps form follows function, the design isn't there to just look good. The profile we have developed increases surface area without removing excessive volume and mass.
Bass Traps are vital for any studio design and should be one of the top priorities of studio design. Once effective bass control has been installed standing waves are minimised and low end build up is brought under control. Low end energy congregates in all corners of rooms so by placing effective bass traps in the corners you can reduce the detrimental effect this has.
By installing small clusters of the acoustic treatment tiles in a random orientation around the room at first reflection points or other key areas you will increase acoustic clarity and remove unwanted distortion. These acoustic studio foam tiles work hard at controlling mid to high frequencies to help remove echo and control reverberation.
Care is taken in optimising size, profile, foam cell structure and foam density to present a product that offers high visual and acoustic value. Durability is high on our list of priorities too, we manufacture a foam that won't crumble and turn to dust and won't change colour as soon as you've mounted them.
Where Can I Use Them?
There are a wide range of applications for our acoustic products including:
- High End Professional Studios
- Home Studios
- Rehearsal Rooms
- Home Cinemas
- Dedicated Listening Rooms
- And more
Installing our acoustic foam tiles and bass traps included in this kit is very simple. The first step to take is to work out your preferred layout of acoustic tiles and bass traps. Do a sketch on paper first to make sure that the layout looks right and you have enough acoustic foam and space for your planned design. It is best to have small to medium sized clusters of acoustic foam tiles evenly distributed as opposed to one huge cluster of tiles in the middle of a wall.
Once the acoustic tiles and bass traps are mounted to the wall or ceiling they are hard to remove so it is important to get the layout right before you begin. Once you have a sketch of the layout you plan you can then mark up the wall with the layout. You can either use pencil, masking tape or lasers to layout the design on the wall or ceiling.
When mounting the acoustic foam to the wall or ceiling apply Advanced Acoustics Contact Adhesive to both the back of the tile or bass traps and the mounting surface. There is no need to heavily cover the acoustic foam or wall with adhesive, a band of adhesive around the perimeter of the tile or bass trap along with 50% - 75% coverage of the rest of the acoustic tile or bass trap will be fine. Use the same equivalent amount on the wall. Avoid overspray on the product and the wall so that adhesive can’t be seen when the tiles are in place. Masking Tape on the wall will help with this. If you do get webbing overspray on the tile, don’t touch it, allow it to dry, in most cases you will be able to peel the adhesive off.
We would recommend that you install your Bass Traps first. You can re-confirm that everything is going to fit and look right before continuing with installing the acoustic tiles.
The adhesive we supply is solvent based so we recommend that you keep all doors of the room and any windows open whilst completing the installation.
If you prefer to have a more temporary installation of acoustic tiles you can mount the tiles onto 6mm MDF or ply to create panels of acoustic tiles. These panels can then be hung on the wall using a D-Ring and picture hook for a damage free installation. If fitting them to a ceiling then 4 mirror plates would be required.
