Squares are by far the most versatile RoomTunes product. Measuring 12"x12”, the Squares are perfect for spot-treating any hot-spot or "Pressure Zone" in the room. Squares can be used as singles in the upper corners of the room, mid-seam or even major corner placements of the room. Squares can also be used in control patterns, which provide the absorption of a much larger panel without visually dominating the room. If you need to tame a very large room, we recommend using XLTs in combination with Squares for best results.
Squares can be used virtually anywhere in the room to absorb extra energy and balance the room's acoustical character. Squares are often used on the front and/or rear wall in patterns, for maximum flexibility and control. For listeners using taller speakers, Squares is excellent for control of dispersion in the vertical plane. Squares can also be used on the sidewalls, ceiling or even behind the listening position, anywhere more space and depth is desired.
Roomtunes Are Different
RoomTunes are not hard edged products, there is no frame, in appearance they more closely resemble pillows. This is done on purpose, having no frame removes potential resonance and maximizes in-room absorption. Many acoustical panels on the market are made from compressed fiberglass, RoomTunes are not. Compressed fiberglass, although good at absorbing certain frequencies, is quite resonant when hung on a wall where the panel may “sing” along with the music. RoomTunes do not resonate, delivering higher performance and a cleaner, clearer sound, despite being smaller and lighter.
Roomtunes On The Wall
RoomTunes come with clear push-pins, which are the best way to fasten them to the wall. They can also be fastened to the wall using Command strips (not included), a new hook & loop style connector created by 3M. Similar in function to Velcro, Command strips are much more powerful than either Velcro or similar adhesives with greater holding ability and the advantage of being quickly & easily removed without damaging the wall. Command Strips are a big step beyond old-style Velcro whose adhesive left walls colored; pushpins definitely provide the most secure and flush-to-the-wall attachment.
