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.

  • (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

Perfect!

I couldn't be happier with the London 8 Kit! Easy as can be to install and wow what a difference in sound. My studio room is very small but these did the trick! Plan to get another set for where I record percussion in my room. So worth every dime!

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.
3.5/5

Works good for the room, install was a pain

I'm in about a 10' by 8' by 10'H room, and the treatment works well deadening the space a bit, but the installation was unnecessarily painful. There was no drill bit as stated, so I had to run to the hardware store, and the screws and anchors were poor quality. I stripped every screw I put in whether I did it by hand or drill, and I bent half of the anchors trying to get them into the wall. Overall the install took twice as long as it should have.
