Improve the sound of your room!

Do you need acoustic treatment? Stand in the middle of your room, clap your hands, and listen. Hear that? That's flutter echo, reflections, standing waves, and other acoustic anomalies that will impact the quality of your recordings and color what you hear when you're mixing. Luckily, it's a common problem, and an easy one to solve, no matter how big or small your room is. The Primacoustic London 8 room kit is designed for rooms up to 100 square feet, and it tames the most common acoustic issues you'll encounter.

Primacoustic London 8 Acoustic Treatment Room Kit at a Glance:
  • Reduces early reflections for a cleaner sounding room
  • The cure for flutter echo
  • Not your average foam
Conquers a multitude of acoustic concerns

Most rooms in either commercial facilities or residential dwellings have parallel walls. These parallel walls are great for aesthetics and floor plans, but they introduce a world of problems in a recording or mixing rooms. The first culprit is primary reflections. In simplest terms, this is sound bouncing off of walls near the sound source. These reflected sounds recombine and phase cancellation occurs, causing comb filtering. Obviously, with phase cancellation, you're not getting a true picture of the sound, so your mix won't translate well on other systems. Primacoustic's London 8 room kit uses a quartet of Control Columns to tame early reflections. Positioned near the sound source, the Control Columns helps to "define" the listening area, making it easier to discern what is really happening versus hearing the reflections, making both mixing and recording easier.

The cure for flutter echo

When you clap your hands in your room, much of what you hear is flutter echo - essentially sound bouncing off the walls, ceiling, and floor. In a room this lively, it will be nearly impossible to add the right amount of reverb to your mix. The eight Scatter Blocks in the London 8 room kit are usually installed behind the listening position to help disperse flutter echo by absorbing some of the sound energy while allowing some of the energy to reflect back. This allows for a more natural sound at the monitoring position. And at Sweetwater, we know how important it is to have a true picture of what's going on at the mix position.

Not your average foam

Primacoustic London room kits are made up of Broadway acoustic panels. These panels aren't really what is conventionally called foam, as they're made from a high-density 6lb-per-cubic-foot fiberglass. This denser material provides almost five times greater absorption than typical foam. That equates to less foam on the wall and more absorption for a clean look and better sound.

London 8 Package Contents:
  • (4) Control 36" Columns - 12"x 36" x 1.5", w/Beveled Edges
  • (8) Scatter 12" Blocks - 12" x 12" x 1", w/Beveled Edges
  • (20) Surface Impalers
  • Anchors, Screws, and 1/4" Drill Bit to Mount Impalers

WOWWWW

Perfect for my room. I had to check several time to make sure that I didn't actually get new monitors. Seriously Night and day. worth noting: while it cleaned up pretty much everything in the room, it is not super effective on low end. seems like it tightened everything up but didn't really do any "trapping" so I think that will be my next investment. still; 10/10. great to install

Does the job

I used this kit in conjunction with sound treatment that I already had to complete the treatment in my new isolation room. It works well. I am very happy with it.

Primacoustic London 8 - Beige

The room treatment is just what was needed for our studio. Sweetwater, as usual, did everything in a professional manner. Always a pleasure to work with them!

Good Start; Easy to Install

My room is on the big end of the range recommended for this kit, so it doesn't make a dramatic difference but it's definitely noticeable and was worth installing. I hear more definition in my monitors than before when listening to the same mixes. You may still need bass trapping along with this, depending on the size and characteristics of your room. The kit is easy to install. You'll need a drill and a level but it isn't hard (and I don't regard myself as particularly handy). I wish Primacoustic would sell individual tiles or small lots at retail, in addition to these kits, as my room is probably in between the 8 and 12. It also would be great to see more colors. But I understand it's probably not efficient for them to do either of those and keep the price down.
