The principals of Acoustics First® have been in the acoustics arena since the seventies when they introduced industrial foam as an acoustic solution for recording studios. Back then, there were neither acoustics companies nor any off the shelf acoustic materials. Everything had to be built by hand. Since then, many choices have appeared – Pre-manufactured acoustical panels, thermoformed diffusers, and many single solution room kits. While kits are convenient and give reasonable results, they can’t possibly be an exact match for your room. Just as no two snowflakes are alike; no two rooms sonically the identical. When it comes to room acoustics, there is no ‘one size fits all’. All rooms are different, so we have created the PhaseFOAM™ acoustical system to allow you, the designer, to tune your room the way you want it to sound. more
