There’s no doubt that acoustic treatment can dramatically improve the sound of a room, but it’s rare that it makes it look dramatically better. GIK Acoustics are seeking to change that, though, with their new Impression Series of acoustic panels and bass traps.
The Impression Series panels are designed to creating an even balance of low end absorption without losing high frequency presence. The rigid plate not only gives the panel a stylish appearance but also helps reflect/scatter high frequency content in the room giving the proper balance needed.
GIK offers the Impression Series panels in five designs: Bubbles, Checkerboard, Gatsby Arches, Mod Geometric and 3D Cubes. There are three standard sizes available — Square (24” x 24”), Narrow (12” x 48”) and Rectangle (24” x 48”) — and three levels of absorption: two-inch, four-inch and six-inch. The final option is the finish, which is available in wood veneer, black acrylic and white acrylic.
The Impression Series panels are intended to be especially effective in any space where speech intelligibility is compromised or the room has too much reverberation and is too loud.
“We understand the appearance of conventional acoustic panels may not appeal to everyone,” said Glenn Kuras, President of GIK Acoustics. “That is specifically why we developed the Impression Series to have a visual as well as an aural impact. We are proud to offer a line of acoustic treatments that are not only superior at controlling the acoustics of a room, but will transform the look and aesthetic of a room as well.”
The Impression Series will make a public debut at The NAMM Show in Anaheim.
