Building a High End Listening Room 3: QRD67H – Hybrid Diffuser

We finished a third step towards a perfect listening space. A hybrid acoustic diffuser now covers almost the entire ceiling. We tried to make a photo of it, but even a wide 10mm lens could not capture it in its entirety.

QRD67H – Hybrid acoustic diffuser

This will disperse unwanted acoustic reflection and without absorbing too much acoustic energy inside the space at the same time. There will be more spatiality and perceived openness to the sound.

Size:   6.7 x 4.5 m
Number of segments: 3015
Segment size: 10 x 10 cm

Along the outline of the ceiling diffuser, there are two separate sections of LED lighting.

On the front walls of the listening studio, there will be placed two hybrid diffusers we are currently preparing in our workshop. A detail is shown below. Segments made from acoustic foam are covered with a thin layer of real oak wood treated with natural oil.

Taking in mind the acoustic parameters, for the floor, we chose a high quality carpet with high pile (11 mm) made of polypropylene fibres.

The upcoming article is going to bring a comprehensive look at acoustic measurements following the individual steps of acoustic treatment, including subjective evaluation of the sound. Stay tuned!
