Which package is recommended to whom?
The issue which package should be recommended to whom often arises. Is it worth choosing the bigger package right away or is a smaller one sufficient?
How we are equipped with acoustic devices depends basically on our level of interest in sound – our passion – and on our budget.
To those who just started getting to know this area or have recently bought a new home theatre system and want to achieve a better sound or are curious what can be made out of an older device or maybe ask us for solution for a specific acoustic problem, we usually recommend the online or the basic package.
However, acoustics is usually addictive to the interested people thus based our experience many become returning customers over time. J
We recommend premium acoustic measurement to those who are well aware of the importance of the acoustics and are ready to do the next step toward achieving the dream voice.
Online acoustic planning
It is worthwhile to choose our online acoustic planning package in the following cases:
- if your home theatre room or living room is located at a greater distance from us,
- if you are interested in acoustics, the construction of your audio system is in progress and you would like to have some acoustic panels in addition to the purchase of the devices.
On the photos the room must be visible wall-to-wall. Please take photos of each side of the room where the furniture and other items of home decoration should be placed as usual. So, we can design and draw the necessary panels considering these items.
Beside the photos we need the following details for the planning:
the size of the room: height, width, length,
type of the walls – what sort of materials are they made of, e.g. plasterboard, brick, concrete,
we do not need a plan of the room.
We send a written draft of the result of the online planning and the placement of the acoustic items and give a detailed explanation on the phone. We also make suggestions how to lay out the proposed loudspeakers, the listener position and the furniture.
Basic acoustic measurement
Acoustic measurement is performed on site. We are able to measure in details the conditions of the room, its layout and the type of the walls. We are able to measure even essential data such as the reverberation time or the value of sound pressure of the loudspeakers.
Following the measurement, we calculate on-site what type and how many acoustic panels are needed to get the best sound experience possible with the performance of the existing audio system and the conditions of the room, using the acoustic items.
It is possible to consult on the individual ideas such as the colours and materials of the panels or hidden solutions on site.
The basic acoustic measurement usually takes one hour depending on the conditions of the room.

Premium acoustic measurement
Acoustic measurement is performed on-site with acoustic panels.
In the course of the measurement we are able to completely identify the acoustic problems and offer a solution for them.
The outcome can be tested for real on site equipped with acoustic panels.
The premium acoustic measurement usually takes two hours depending on the acoustics of the room.
To order the premium acoustic measurement package please contact us on the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please specify the exact the size of the room in the email: height, width, length, and type of the walls – plasterboard, brick or concrete. Please send us photos where the room must be visible wall-to-wall if possible. Please take photos of each side of the room where the furniture and other items of home decoration should be placed as usual.
With the photos and details we can identify and calculate the number and type of panels needed, before the start. We deliver these panels with a van to the location for premium acoustic measurement on the date agreed with the client and set up the necessary items in the room.
Why is on-site measurement with acoustic panels different?
On-site measurement for real in a room furnished with acoustic panels is part of the premium acoustic measurement package only.
I identify the problems also by ear with a set of test-music. This is my favourite music developed for testing the bass:
If you hear buzzing, growling bass while listening to music that means that the reverberation of the room cannot calm down quickly enough below 200Hz therefore you will hear a continuous growl. The other problem that may be noticed in these cases if there is no drum with proper dynamics. Only a half-hearted chug can be heard. In such a case there will be a huge dip below 150Hz. The worst case is when these two couple.
What can we hear at the on-site measurement?
In the course of the premium measurement we can test the intensity and phase of the arriving reflected sound, whether there is any reverberation or echo or other disturbing sound effect that may aworsen the quality of the sound – in the room furnished according to the preliminary plans, within the hearing of the client, in the room where he/she the most frequently listens to music or watches the screen.
When we managed to identify the acoustic anomalies of the room and get the most out of it upon acoustic measurements, then the best part comes: the listening. The customer can listen to his/her cherished system in an ideal acoustic ambience. In this case the usual scene is the non-stop satisfied nodding of the customer together with a smile coming over his/her face.
Of course, the result always depends on the actual conditions of the room, but generally our customers describes the changes produced by the acoustic treatment in the following way:
“Huge increase in spaciousness, cleaner sound.”
“Extremely sharp positioning of instruments.”
“The sound stage in front of us was flat before, but now it is surrounding us.” It’s like sitting among the musicians”
“The buzzing of the bass has gone, the bass became fast, detailed and dynamic”
I discovered new details in the sound and new instruments became obvious on my well-known records.
Do I need to purchase the panels which were placed during the measurement?
When the acoustic units are placed, we measure continuously the acoustic characteristics of the room. By this the customer can follow the effectiveness of the acoustic panels and the improvement in the acoustics of the room.
The measurement can be stopped any time if the customer is satisfied with the improvement in sound quality thus far, does not want to place more acoustic panels in the room or does not want to exceed the two-hour time frame included in the base package.
If we wish to enjoy the perfect sound immediately then it is worth considering to purchase all those acoustic panels by which we managed to achieve it in the given room.
Of course, it is possible to buy less panels at once and expand the assortment further later on. In case of a compromise solution we cut back the volume of the panels by the order of their importance.
If you decide to purchase further acoustic panels later on, we can only guarantee the sound which was achieved and heard during the acoustic measurement if you choose among the products of Perfect Acoustic! Panels of other manufactures can lead to completely different results.
What is not feasible on-site?
The only thing we cannot measure during an on-site acoustic measurement is the ceiling since we cannot take construction and installation works. During the measurement we place the absorbing panels where we need them in order to reach the most important goal: to measure the benefit we get by placing the panels.
Do we implement also individual ideas?
Beside their maximum effectiveness we also pay special attention to their aesthetic appearance when preparing our products. We also undertake to prepare custom made panels which fit the style of the flat and the taste of the client. Please let us know your individual ideas when we agree on the timing of the on-site acoustic measurement.
