sE Electronics announce new acoustic treatment product range.

sE Electronics announce new acoustic treatment product range.


The sE Electronics International group have launched a new brand of high quality, professional room treatments, Ghost Acoustics.

sE have built a reputation over the last 4 years for very high quality microphone products, manufactured in their state of the art facility in Shanghai. The company has long had ambitions to move into other areas of manufacturing with their own product brands and GHOST is the first of these. The sE group has a strategy of defining brand identity with discrete product groups, hence sE Electronics brand has only microphone related products, and this new brand has been created for acoustic treatment.

With the same philosophy of attention to detail, original in house (and not OEM) design, and producing exceptional quality products for only mid-market prices, the new acoustic treatment range addresses project studio, rehearsal, pro’ and consumer markets with its innovative, simple and highly effective designs.

At launch, the GHOST range will comprise 5 products in a choice of 2 colours, Charcoal Grey, and Light Grey. The central building block for the range is a 2’x2’ absorber built around a steel inner frame. The construction is layers of highly compressed glass fibre (100Kg per cubic Metre), with layers of Aluminium foil which help ‘break up’ lower frequency wave forms. These layers are covered with a fully fire ******ant fabric and the whole structure is bound with a brushed Aluminium frame, which both allows diffusion and looks great!

The products are all fully fire ******ant, unlike the many foam based solutions on the market. Another huge advantage over foam products is that the GHOST absorbers will work much more efficiently to absorb low frequency information as well as HF.

The mounting system is also novel to this type of product, but incredibly simple. Each ‘absorber’ ships with a metal frame which screws onto the wall. This frame has a series of mounting-heads onto which the product can be easily hung.

Each 2’x2’ ‘absorber’ has two tubes running through it which allow the product to be mounted quickly and easily on a solid steel base with Steel Rod attachments to form ‘Gobo’s’ for recording guitar cabs, drums or vocals. Each stand can stack up to three 2’x2’ traps, and they are designed so horizontal, angled walls can be built also. So, when tracking, you can remover the panels from your studio walls to use as Gobo’s or to form a full height vocal booth. The same panels can then be re-mounted in seconds for mixing in a properly treated room.

Equally, the system is so portable that it can be transferred to rehearsal rooms to help with instrument separation… the possibilities become limitless. And because the product is fully fire ******ant, it can be used in public buildings (unlike most foam products) like schools, churches, music colleges etc.

In addition to the standard 2’x2’ product, GHOST are releasing a 2’x2’ Wedge for side wall absorption/diffusion, a 2’ x 4’ flat panel for wall mounting behind the main monitors, the Gobo steel base and rod set, and a corner bass trap.



In summary:

Fully fire ******ant

Full range absorption

Easy to mount

Portable

Multiple applications (Wall treatment/Gobo/Vocal Booth/Instrument separation etc)

Very high build quality – brushed Aluminium finish

Great Looks

The final piece of the puzzle is price… A full room kit including corner bass traps, Gobo panels, wedges, flat panels and the Gobo base will retail at under £1200 inc vat, only a fraction more than simple foam products!

Product is due to ship April 2006

And to be pedantic it's spelt wrong the first time !

But I spoke to them about the Ghost stuff a couple of months ago and it sounds like it'll be very cool, so it should be worth the wait.

They look pretty ineffective. Their NRC seems to peak at around 0.50. Buy dense fiberglass insulation 3X24X48 inch (like 705 or Rockboard 60) and you'll get an NRC of around 1.00 that'll start to taper down at around 250 Hz, but it will still greatly outperform the sE traps below that. And it'll cost you much less. I'm not sure why anyone would buy these.

I suggest DIY

Fiberglass + a little wood for a frame + 'breathable' fabric = high quality broadband bass trap. There is lots of info around here on ways to make them. If you want to absorb low frequencies, the thinner your panels, the denser the fiberglass should be. In thicker panels, less dense can absorb a broader range of frequencies. Google the porous absorber calculator for more info on that. Check out Ethan Winer - Home Page and RealTraps - Home for basically everything you need to know about acoustic treatment.
