Auralex SonoLite 1" Absorption Panel Introduction
Auralex announced their new 1” absorption panels at the 2011 NAMM claiming it was a cost effective solution to help eliminate flutter echo. This piqued our interest as a few months back we decided to change out the carpeted flooring of the Audioholics Showcase Theater system in favor of a high quality laminate.
We did this for several reasons:
- The builder grade carpets left much to be desired as the years wore on
- To liven up the room a bit
We knew there would be some risks in going from a flooring that acted like an absorptive membrane to one that acted like a reflector at high frequencies (the laminate). However, we suspected this could be controlled with a thick throw rug and pad at the primary first reflection point between the front speakers and listening area.
