The ‘Long View’ of Sound

Good acoustic spaces allow better non-thinking, emotional reactions to sound and music. There’s a moment early in the movie “Men In Black” – after a big green alien has put up ‘all his hands and flippers’ (and was then blasted to goo) – where an older, tired-out Agent D says to Agent K “They’re beautiful,… Continue Reading →

A Great Deal(er)!

It’s great to be a Pro! Acoustic Geometry, the Premium brand in acoustic products, has a limited number of retail dealers that qualify as Audio Professionals. Why? Pro audio people searching for real-world solutions to acoustical problems would rather deal with people who really understand their unique businesses. And that means the companies we want… Continue Reading →


Huge Huge Gains…

We hear from Doug, a happy customer. Doug, who very recently purchased (from Full Compass Systems in Madison, WI) and installed four Curve Diffusors (2 Medium, 2 Small) in his already-absorber-treated control / recording room, sent us this email: “First Impressions of my AG’d [Acoustic-Geometry’d] room: Thanks John!!! A giant thorn has been removed from… Continue Reading →

Everyone Seems To Agree…

On the importance of treating the First Reflection Points (but – with what?) Acoustics, like other human endeavors, generates opinions by the roomful. It’s normal and expected; there are also rare instances of opinions becoming facts via scientific research, and the concept of the “First-Reflection Points” (FRPs) appears to be headed for wider acceptance. A… Continue Reading →


Testing 1, 2 – Is This On?

Acoustical testing is a baby that can’t yet speak. It’s a truism in standards-testing industries: you can only test for parameters for which you have tests. In the acoustics business that means testing is limited to measurement values which have accurate and repeatable tests, like sound pressure. This is especially important when you consider that… Continue Reading →

Acoustic Panel Install Video

Let’s get practical! At Acoustic Geometry, even though we like to think of ourselves as deep thinkers (after Beer:30PM, anyway), we’re occasionally called on to do something practical. This is the case with our latest video release, “Acoustic Panel Install”. It’s not a metaphor-rich trip through acoustical scenery, just four minutes of how to place… Continue Reading →

Forward to the Past

The future of acoustic treatment goes back to the ‘40’s. The 1960’s are often regarded as rock’s finest decade, producing music that became the template for much of what followed. The recording studios in which this iconic music was created were mostly live-sounding rooms – the trend toward very dead-sounding rooms didn’t start until the… Continue Reading →

The Perfect Sound Image

Even the best mix won’t work with some speaker placements. Once upon a time, back in the big-dang vinyl-record-label era, I was one of two mixing engineers on a big-dang album project with a huge-dang artist. We had the luxury of working in a recording studio with a vinyl-disc-cutting mastering room down the hallway, so,… Continue Reading →

Speakers and Acoustics – A Marriage Blog

How is the topic of “room acoustics” similar to the spouse of the Vice-President of the United States? They’re both important but very rarely thought about. But the Vice-Prez and spouse are a married couple, and they influence each other considerably – just like speakers and acoustics. However, this being a contentious political year, I’ll now… Continue Reading →

What are “Acoustic Panels”?

I understand, I really do – we all want the simplest-possible solution, we’re all bombarded by TMI (too-much-idiocy-information), we all need less, not more. So we revert to the “Easy Button” (great ad campaign!), and say to the salesperson/consultant/acoustic-buddy that we want “acoustic panels” to fix the sound in our rooms.… Continue Reading →
