KINETICS® STEALTH

2D Diffuser

STEALTH Diffusers are 2D (two-dimensional) diffusers that scatter sound energy horizontally and vertically, thanks to the random elevations and varied patterns of STEALTH’s surface.

STEALTH Diffusers expand the listener’s sound field for a more enveloping experience.

STEALTH Diffusers are installed in a Kinetics StretchTRAK system or other stretched-fabric acoustical systems, where they disappear from view.

ACOUSTIC BENEFITS

  • Scatters sound energy into the room by controlling harsh, specular reflections
  • Improves sound clarity and uniformity throughout the listening space
  • Adds a sense of spaciousness and balance in critical listening rooms
  • Expands the sound field for a more lifelike listening experience
  • Improves speech intelligibility
  • Controls flutter echo on parallel walls

STEALTH Diffusers are manufactured in a black thermo-molded, rigid copolymer material to provide cost-effective diffusion for home theaters, home studios, two-channel rooms, and other critical listening environments.

STEALTH Diffuser dimensions are 20-1/2" W x 44-1/2" H. They can be oriented horizontally or vertically. They are available in three thicknesses that fit within 1-inch, 2-inch and 4-inch stretched-fabric acoustical systems.

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES

STEALTH Diffusers are installed on walls and ceilings, according to the acoustical room design. Although installation is typically done by Kinetics-certified StretchTRAK system installers, STEALTH Diffusers can be installed by following the guidelines below.

  • Tools and hardware needed
  • Utility Knife
  • Construction Adhesive
  • Drywall screws (length)
  • STEALTH 1 (1-inch)
  • STEALTH 2 (1-1/4 inch)
  • STEALTH 4 (2-1/2 inch)
  • Mounting
  • Mark the surface area where the diffuser will be placed.
  • Apply construction adhesive on the back of the diffuser, where contact will be made with the wall or ceiling.
  • Run drywall screws through the face to hold in place while adhesive cures.
  • If necessary, diffusers can be cut with a table saw or sharp utility knife to fit an appropriate size for the intended area.
