Home stereo systems and other audio enhancements to your home can give you and your family an incredible experience for movies, music, and watching television. Your stereo system may not be as optimized as it could be. Spending time and money to craft a high-end system will all be overshadowed if the room that it is placed in is not properly outfitted for acoustical optimization. Ensuring that there is not only high-quality sound being produced, but that the room that it is being produced in continues to contain and enrich that sound in high-quality, is essential. Acoustic Geometry knows about creating acoustically optimized spaces in your home. Take a look at some of the things you can do to ensure that your home stereo system is in an environment that can help it perform at its best.
Make Sure Your Stereo Is Set Up Correctly
Before working on the room itself, make sure that when you are installing your new stereo system, it is placed in the optimal position. There are many articles online to help with small adjustments that can make your speakers work better, or, you can work with the company that you bought the system from to ensure proper installation. A general rule is to make sure that speakers are pointed towards the listener with 2-3 inches of space between them and the wall to reduce sound reflections. The speakers should be toed-in, pointing at a point directly behind where the listener/viewer will be sitting to enjoy the system. Additional placement of subwoofers surround sound towers, and other augmentations to a stereo system should be set up to help add depth and layer to the existing speakers.
Prepare The Room
Before diving into the actual nuts and bolts of materials that help acoustically improve the room, there are simple things that you can do to help the space itself be more acoustically friendly. For example, reducing the number of hard surfaces in the room where sound can reflect off of. This is important, especially if these surfaces are in direct line with the initial output of the speakers. This can include windows. Acoustical Curtains can provide a barrier from interior sound reflection, as well as preserve the acoustic integrity of the room from outside. Another simple way to make sure that a room is ready for a home stereo system is looking below your feet. Hardwood floors are beautiful, but they can cause problems by reflecting sound around a room. Considering placing your home stereo in a room that is carpeted, or placing a carpet on the hardwood floor, can help absorb and diffuse some of the echoes that a room naturally might produce.
Acoustic Materials For Better Sound
Once the room itself has been looked over, filling it with materials that will aid in producing a globally better sounding audio experience will elevate your home stereo system. Sound reflecting off surfaces can create echoes in your home, reducing the quality of the stereo’s sound. Installing diffusers breaks up sound, and prevents reflections from giving high-quality audio an echo. Curve Diffusers are a great way to create this effect in a room. They come in several sizes for any size room and can be customized to match the aesthetic of a room.
Additionally, utilizing absorbers to make the room sound larger without creating Echos helps bolster your stereo system’s performance. Fabric-Wrapped Panels and clouds for walls and ceilings are easy to install and make any room they are utilized in elevated acoustically. Other solutions include Silk Metal Ceiling Tiles to help with acoustical ceiling issues and acoustic wall art that not only looks fantastic but helps the room sound fantastic as well. While all of these solutions can be applied individually, Acoustic Geometry has put together Room Packs, which feature all of these noise-reduction and acoustic solutions in one convenient place. Choose from a variety of options that fits your specific needs, from the basic Home Room Pack 1 all the way up to the Pro Room Pack 12.
