Speaker maker Equator Audio has a new supporting product for
its speakers, an acoustic treatment panel.
Called Francis Buckley/Equator Sound Abatement Panels,
they were developed with Grammy-winning Engineer/Producer Francis Buckley.
The panels are made of cotton rather than fiberglass or
synthetic foam materials.Also different
than common acoustic treatment panels is the size. Rather than the typical
2-foot by 4-foot panel, the FB/E panels are smaller at 1-foot by 2-foot. This
allows them to be more easily placed in a project studio. They are 2 inches
Equator says the panels have a noise reduction coefficient
of 1.05 and a sound absorption average of 1.04. They come four to a box, in
black. Price: $149.
Buckley has produced a video about the panels.
