Color: Charcoal Qty: 12 panels (6-nested pair) Size: 2” peak x 24” x 12” (1/2” base) Lay down the best tracks in your room with help from our SoundTrax™!!! This unique cut of NextFoam™ offers good performance for an unmatched price. The key to SoundTrax getting the job done is the peaks and valleys (and angles and depths and curves and…well you get idea) that offer absorption in the mid and high frequency range, but all that exposed area on each panel helps with refraction of sound as well. A little of this treatment will go a long way to cleaning up your sound issues. But, please remember that with the SoundTrax, while you get an awesome look from each panel, they are not cut to match exactly when installed side by side. We keep the price incredibly affordable on our SoundTrax panels because we make and cut them in really, really (we mean it) really large pieces. When they get further cut down to fit into the shippable box (so you don’t have to pay $50 more in shipping), it becomes nearly impossible to exactly match them back together. But really, why would you want to? You can increase the performance of the SoundTrax (and treat more of your room for less cost) by spacing each panel out. That brings each edge of the SoundTrax into play, which means more re-direction of the sound waves, more area showing to absorb, better performance, better room! And the best way to mount our SoundTrax studio foam panels is with a pack of NextTape adhesive tabs. Just cut the tabs into 1"x1" pieces and you'll be able to hang your panels! Search for NextTape before you check out! You'll be glad you did.

Okay, I'm no sound engineer. My sound guys helping with my room had a good laugh at my expense. I related my speaker foam experience and one of the guys replied "Yeah, I remember those speakers, they were JBL's that had those covers. I Loved those speakers! mine had red foam covers"
So it was a good learning experience. I got much better results (but more difficult to handle) hanging pleated drapes where I needed, to get the results I wanted. And also learned to purchase the densest and thickest sound panels I could find. Leave these things to cover your speakers if you ever loose your grill covers.
I'm not sure how anyone rated this 3 or 4 stars. It does nothing audibly. It doesn't even remotely deaden a "lively" room. I give it two stars because it looks good, is easy to handle and work with, and my order was filled promptly. It also did an ok job of insulating my cold windows. Maybe it should be sold as more of an insulator. Certainly not for sound.
I recommend this product to any potential buyer. After doing much research, I also recommend getting bass traps. In fact, if you have to choose between these or bass traps, get the bass traps first.
I got this for my home recording studio. They are the cheapest I found that also look nice and are new. I record a lot of acoustic instruments acoustic, electric and bass guitar, drums, hand drums, vocals, etc. I had a -61 ambient decibel reading on my digital meter when I got these. As soon as i scattered these around the walls in my room it dropped to -65 dB. -4 dB whole points on a room that I considered already pretty much silent. It is amazing how many noises are reverberating throughout your room and go unnoticed. I now notice a huge difference every time i walk into my studio. The lack of noise compared to the rest of the house is beautiful.
The are expensive for foam pads.. but considering my options if I want good quality sound treatment, they are worth it.
I also made my own bass traps because I could not find any for a cheap enough price. they cut the rooms ambient decibel reading all the way down to -71! So I would not recommend using only these thinner foam panels to treat a room. They should be used in combination with other sound treatment materials if you want to really control a rooms sound.
I should note that I also got a box of the Aurelex 12"x12" pads to test them and to scatter them randomly on the empty spots on my wall so that they would be more effective. I put the Soundtrax and the bass traps up first since they are bigger and take up more room. Later I added the Aurelex to the empty spots on my walls they also made a nice difference. niether brand really appears to have an advantage over the other, but I do like the swirl design on the SountTrax. Theoretically the extra surface area should adsorb more sound than the V ridge grooves I got with my Aurelex. But the Aurelex smaller size is really handy for scattering more randomly which should also be very effective.
