We offer 3 different mounting solutions which are included at no additional charge with every panel you purchase.
- Wall mounted – Comes with two metal brackets and mounting screws. One bracket attaches to the top back of the panel facing down, and the other to the wall facing up. The panel then rests comfortably on the wall bracket. We also include a 1 inch rubber bumper that screws to the back bottom middle of the panel, and rests on the wall, giving the panel a 1 inch air gap. This allows for the RGB LED light to be seen around the edges and also helps absorb more sound.
- Cable mounted – Comes with eye hooks that screw into the top of the panel, and two hooks that screw into the ceiling, as well as 1/16th inch metal cable and crimps. This is a little bit more complicated to install because you have to measure out the distance from the ceiling to the top of the panel and cut all the cables accordingly, but looks classy when it’s done right. This option is best when you are hanging panels in front of windows and doors and cannot use the wall mounts. Please be sure to measure the ceiling hooks so that they screw in 3 inches away from the wall. This ensures that the panel will hang with a 1 inch air gap off the wall.
- Ceiling mounted – Regular panels come with 4 hooks that screw into the 4 back corners, 4 hooks that screw into the ceiling as well as 4 short chains. C64 ceiling clouds come with 6 hooks that screw into the 4 back corners as well as two in the back middle (for additional support), 6 hooks for the ceiling and 6 short chains. We recommend you consult a contractor when hanging C64 ceiling clouds to ensure the panel is anchored properly into wooden support beams beneath the dry wall. This will ensure that the weight of the panel is supported and won’t come crashing down.
* We DO NOT recommend you hang C64 ceiling clouds directly into dry wall as most dry wall will not support heavy weights. PSY Acoustics will not be responsible for ANY damage or injury that results from improper installation.
Room acoustics describes how sound behaves in a space. If the room has no sound absorbing surfaces (wall, roof and floor), the sound will bounce between the surfaces and and will not be heard accurately. This is because the listener hears both the direct sound and reflected sound waves, simultaneously. This causes “standing waves” in the room which translate to spikes and dips in the overall EQ curve of the speakers. The result is an inaccurate representation of the sound, and typically causes the listener to make poor mix choices.
Make no mistake, our products aren’t just for show, they’re PROFESSIONALLY designed studio grade acoustic panels with an NRC rating of 1.10. All of our panel cores are made of a 3.5 inch thick, non-toxic material called mineral wool (which in most cases, performs better than standard fiberglass cores). When the sound wave penetrates the core, the sound energy through friction is changed into heat. The residual sound that doesn’t get absorbed on the way in bounces off the back wall and then back through the panel a second time for even more sonic absorption.
