Acoustic Manufacture is a company specializing in the production of acoustical elements, born from the audiophile passion of the founders.
From listening rooms and home theater systems by recording studios and rehearsal rooms, to conference rooms and auditoriums… wherever applied our acoustical elements, effectively improving the acoustic environment. Standard offer including affordable priced, proven designs. Of course, it gradually augmented by developing new designs.
From the point of psychophysiology of hearing, good dispersion of acoustic waves in the room is one of the most important factors to improve the sound quality. Diffusers must be made of materials that will allow her reflection to ensure effective dissipation of sound waves . So if the structure is made of sound-absorbing materials, their effectiveness drops down suddenly. This applies especially to all kinds of pyramid foam diffusers, made of styrofoam, xps, etc.
Schroeder diffuser is the first structure having a dispersion closely described mathematically. Its operation is based on an appropriate summation of reflected waves with different phases of the rigid surface. The best sound dispersion is obtained by placing the diffusers in the points first sound wave reflection. They help to reduce the reverberation time, eliminate flutter echo and comb-filter effect . They doesn’t absorb sound too much in the room, keeping his acoustic liveliness . The modular design of the diffuser allows them to any compilation.
1D diffusers operate in 180 degrees in one plane (horizontal). The range is related to the scattering geometry of the system. Lower frequency range corresponds to the depth of the slot and higher frequency – its width. Number of wells of the diffuser has an impact on the diffusing factor – the more slots means better.
The terminology in the name
The first symbol before the slash indicates number of so called wells. The second symbol after the slash indicates the approximate width of the body in centimeters. Additional word basic means budget version (with a thinner frame made with plywood instead of wooden).
Example: 43N 1/120 basic = 43 +1 wells / width of 123 cm, a budget version
Diffusers, whose construction diffuse sound waves semicircular, in two ways. Recommended especially to place in the points the first reflections behind speakers, in front of the listener. Lower frequency range corresponds to the depth of the slot and higher frequency – its width. Number of slots of the diffuser has an impact on the diffusing factor – the more slots means better.
The terminology in the name of the body
The first symbol before the slash indicates number of so called wells. The second symbol after the slash indicates the approximate width of the body in centimeters. Additional word basic means budget version (with a thinner frame made with plywood instead of wooden, with narrow choice of colors).
Example: 19+1/120 basic = 19 +1 wells / width of 122.5 cm, a simplified version
We are happy to design and create diffusers tailored to your listening room both acoustically and visually. We are able to design and make the system in any dimension and color.
We propose concrete solutions, the choice of the type and characteristics. Consultation service is free for customers who order the set of diffusers in our company.
Units made to order are only slightly more expensive than standard. For example: simple modified panels 1D (in height) may differ only amount 5-15% from the standard price. Please contact us.
Standard color palette
Please, specify the number when ordering. It is possible to order the body in a different color, but it may change the delivery time and the price.
Note: The colors on the picture may differ from actual due to differences in screen settings, technique (screen is gloving) or the specific response of the particular wood varnish. In case of doubt, you can order and receive samples of the chosen varnishes.
When it comes to complex room treatment Acoustic Manufacture panels are simply as good as it gets ,both sonically and visually. But industry and private users already know that. You will see them everywhere on the major audio shows.
