UNDERSTANDING what you heard"
Room Acoustics
We have two different and distinct products utilizing the “Black Hole Acoustics”™ Mounting System. Our number one product is our down sloping units that work with our own “Best in the World” absorbers.
Secondly, we have a ceiling version our “Best in the World” absorbers.  The mounts attach to a common sheet rock ceiling easily. The ceiling units have the same scientific, proprietary slope that delivers DOUBLE the over all NRC and up to SEVEN times the low frequency absorption of other products when mounted in any corner as a Bass Trap. How well do they work as Bass Traps? Just look at the absorption chart to see real independent laboratory tests that prove it’s many times greater than any competitive product. Remember, it takes both thickness and mass working together to absorb low frequency energy effectively. Carpet has mass but no thickness. Shaped foam products can be purchased in thicker cuts, even triangular cuts to fit in corners, but they have no mass to speak of.
The “Black Hole Acoustics”™ mounting system is a new advanced science product, not the same old stuff that's been around for years and they work
TWO to SEVEN times better than any thing on the market at the most critical frequencies!
Down Sloping Wall Panels

Here we have our down sloping units that work with our own "Best in the world" absorbers. The  
NRC is 1.65 in the middle of the wall and can achieve amazing low frequency absorption when  
moved to either the wall to wall corner or the usually forgotten wall to ceiling corner.To understand  
what a down sloping unit is, simply look at the pictures on this page. That is the best way to describe  
"down sloping". The picture below on the left shows the absorbers in the wall to ceiling corner  
intersection and the absorbers below right picture shows the absorbers in the center of the wall in  
the church. One box treats a home theatre or recording studio with a 14' X 20' room. Two boxes  
treats a room that would be large enough to seat 25 people, three boxes for a room large enough to  
seat 50 people, four boxes to treat a room that would seat 100 people, and one box per 50 people  
after that. Remeber it's about how many the seating capacity would be not how many are actually in  
the room at the time. For more, on this see the installation and instruction page.
A box contains 8 specially built 2' X 4' x 1" acoustial absorbers, 8 patented "Black Hole  
Acoustics"tm Mounting Systems, all necessary mounting hardware, mounting instructions and  
placement.  
2" thick absorbers can be purchased in a 4 panel kit for extra low end absorption as well as 25%  
more overall absorption for  a NRC 2.05.
All you need is a screw driver. (A level, a tape measure and a screw gun would be nice.)
Side Sloping Wall Panels
Everything here is the same as with the wall system EXCEPT the "Black Hole Acoustics"™ mounting system except it is a mount that can slope vertical left to right or right to left interchangeably as well horizontal which creates a 2' x 4' wall to ceiling bass trap. This creates a new looking wall mount that can slope the panels towards the platform or stage on both sides of the room, OR you can simply mount them in any corner as a Bass Trap. How well do they Bass Trap? Just look at the absorption chart to see real independent laboratory tests. Remember it takes both thickness and mass working together to absorb low frequency energy effectively. Carpet has mass but no thickness. Carved foam products can be purchased in thicker cuts even triangular cut to fit in corners, but they have no mass to speak of. You absolutely can double ANY product by utilizing our mounts, but doubling some products is still not much. So our caution to you is to CHOOSE WISELY!

Using the same Rockwool core the Sloping Ceiling Panels and Hanging Ceiling Baffles provide  
excellent sound absorption in the upper ceiling area, fitting perfectly between high ceiling beams or  
joists. Baffles have twice the surface absorption area, offering high performance absorption in the  
standard size 2’ x 4’.
Sloping Ceiling Panels are available in 4'X2'X1" boxes of 8 and 4.  
2" thick absorbers can be purchased in a 4 panel kit for extra low end absorption as well as 25%  
more overall absorption for  a NRC 2.05.

A Box contains  the specially built acoustical absorbers, made to mount or hang from ceiling.

Ceiling Panels
Portable Acoustics
How? By utilizing a simple folding custom stand , and hanging from that stand four 2’ wide X 4’ tall
folding absorbersor.They raise up to 9 feet above the floor to catch the most important reflections
just above head height in the room.
Where? They should be placed at the back of the room evenly dispersed first and foremost, with a
few along the side walls at a wider spacing for total reflection coverage. Portable Acoustics units can
be placed across the back corners of the room to get twice the low frequency out of the room per
square foot as when they are placed in front of the flat wall sections.
How many? Four absorbers and one stand come in a box and these are made to use the same
formula as our permanently attached wall mounted absorbers. One box for a small room, two boxes
for a meeting room sized for 25 persons, three boxes for a meeting room sized for 50 persons, four
boxes for a meeting room sized for 100 persons, and one box more for every 50 persons after that.
Remember, it’s the capacity of the room not how many are in it at the time your treating for.
When? Right now! You’re wasting time on really bad and unintelligible sound. You don’t need to any
longer now that Acoustics in a Box’s “Portable Acoustics System” is here!
One Box has one stand and four absorbers.
Easily Portable to the Location - Folds out from a small box - Hangs on a high stand - controls a room for a time - then back into the box and back into storage again!

Acoustic Training
Perdue Acoustics and Acoustics In A Box are now providing acoustics training
in conjuction with InfoCom.
The lessons are approximately one hour. With the busy professional in mind, we have broken the lessons down into ten minute segments.
Which allows you to take the course at your convenience. Once you start a lesson you may pick up where you left off until complete.

Current Courses are

1 -  ACOUSTICS 001:
Speech Intelligibility in Architectural Spaces
1 RU. Certificate of completion will be awarded

2 -  Twenty Years of Acoustical    Advancements
.5 RU. Certificate of completion will be awarded

3 -
  Acoustics : How much and Where?
.5 RU. Certificate of completion will be awarded

About Us
Acoustics in a Box was initially created for one purpose only, to create the most
acoustics you could put in the smallest amount of  shipping and/or shelf space.
When we got through bouncing it around some of the greatest acoustical minds
of our day, we realized there were several needed products totally missing out of
the "acoustical work box" and many other products in existence that desperately
needed improvement. The retail acoustics market has virtually been unchanged in
40 to 50 years! The same old flat panels and carved foam that were used in the
analog era are the same old flat panels and carved foam used today.

  The design criteria was simple.... "Here are the issues people face in acoustics
at the entry level. Utilize everything you know and every product and supply on the
planet to  create a cost effective solution, no matter what or where those 
components come from." What you'll see here is the result of decades of
research, development, and creativity. You can believe in these  products AND
you can believe in the numbers on this website. They are the absolute truth in
acoustics. There is a LOT of exaggeration  in electronic and acoustic "claims" but
you won't find that here.  We'll shoot you strait and give you good information, so
you can get the job done right and know what to expect in the end result.
Purchase from our many partners with confidence. You're buying the  best and
the best value!!!
