Dublin, OH | Kinetic Noise Control Inc. (Kinetics) is pleased to announce the release of VersaTune Low Frequency (VTLF) Acoustical Wall Panels, an addition to the VersaTune product line.
VTLF is an extraordinarily low-frequency absorber with bass trap style performance at 80 Hz. These panels remove 85% of reflections while limiting absorption in higher frequencies, all in a slim 2 1/8" thick panel. The result is the eradication of hard-to-treat low frequencies without over-absorbing the bright, higher tones desired in any performance space.
"It's been a long time coming that we've needed a panel that could absorb lower frequency reverberation," notes Ben Hickey, Kinetics Director of Dales for the Room Acoustics and Home Markets. "And now we finally have it with the VTLF. We're ecstatic about this release."
VTLF provides for optimal listening conditions through the reduction of excessive bass reverberation. The unique multi-density panel core boosts the absorption coefficient in the 100 to 400 Hz 1/3 octave bands to an average 0.70, much higher than even standard 4-inch thick acoustical panels. These low-frequency panels are identical in appearance to the existing VersaTune offering, allowing the designer to seamlessly intermix panels on the same wall.
