Acoustic diffusers are used to treat echoes and reflections. Unlike acoustic foam panels that are designed to absorb sound waves at different frequencies, acoustic diffusers are designed to scatter sound waves.
Acoustic absorbers and diffusers both treat echoes and standing waves, but absorption panels will have a dampening effect while diffusion panels will maintain a more lively sound.
Diffusers are often used in combination with sound absorbing panels and bass traps in order to get the desired sound in your room. Small, modular size of these acoustic diffusers allows for placement between our 12x12" acoustic foam panels.
Where to place acoustic diffusers?
Acoustic diffusers are placed at the reflection points in your room.
For a recording studio the most common reflection points for diffuser placement are at the back wall or on the ceiling between the listening position and the sound source.

Below is a picture our awesome customer Ryan sent us of his spray painted acoustic diffusers. He needed them to be off white to match his room, and was able to do the job easily with spray paint! Check out this artistic paint design that can be applied to these diffuser panels.
