Panache and Acoustic Control
Product: 2 inch SoundTrax Acoustical Foam
Posted By: David B.
“My 2 inch SoundTrax panels really do the job and well, offering stellar acoustic absorption without looking like a memory foam mattress pad! Very dense foam cell structure seems to absorb better than some of the other products I’ve used, so much so, I’ve ordered a bigger kit! I don’t have to invest in art for my studio with these in it either:) Get ’em, the price is right and they work!”
64 square feet of 2″ SoundTrax 24″ x 48″ panels. PRO Studio Quality!!! Each panel is 24″ x 48″. You get one large box of 8 panels per box = 8 – 2′ x 4′ panels total = 64 sqft. Color is charcoal gray. You’ll enjoy a great performing product, but you won’t bust your budget to get it! The key to SoundTrax getting the job done is the peaks and valleys (and angles and depths and curves and…well you get the idea) that offer great absorption of the unwanted reflections. All that exposed area on each panel actually helps with the redirection of sound as well. A little of this treatment goes along way!
Photos 3 & 10 are 3 – 2′ x 4′ panels (24sf).
Photos 2 & 4 are 6 – 2′ x 4′ panels = 48 square feet
Photo 11 is also 6 panels, showing many of them “nested.”
Photos 1, 6, 8. and 9 show 2 panels. YOU Get 4X this amount
Photo 7 shows ONE 2′ x 4′ SoundTraxLG panel. YOU get 8 of these!
Photos 8 & 9 show 2 panels. NOTE that in Photo 9, the SEAM between the panels does NOT line up; Do NOT expect the pattern to line-up from panel to panel due to the way this product is manufactured. Installing the panels with a gap (Photo 8) is quite acoustically acceptable and usually preferable for greater absorption.
Photo 12 shows a SoundTraxLG panel and one of our regular size 2″ x 12″ x 24″ SoundTrax Panels (see other eBay listings in our eBay Store). It takes 4 of the small panels (2sf/panel) to equal one SoundTraxLG panel (8sf)
Q & A:
1. What is the difference between your regular 2″ SoundTrax panels and these 2″ SoundTraxLG panels?
The ONLY difference is the size of each panel. Our regular SoundTrax are 12″ x 24″ (2sqft) vs 24″ x 48″ (8sf) for the SoundTraxLG panels. The color, fire-rating, and performance (NRC = .75) are the same
2. Can I mix and match the 12″ x 24″ panels with the LARGER 24″ x 48″ panels?
YES…create a cool design with the two panel sizes. Per Photo 9 above, you should NOT expect the pattern of SoundTrax panels of either size to match up with one another. Check out our FrameTrax strips if you want to hide such seams.
3. Can I cut the SoundTrax panels to fit or decorate my specific room?
YES, all of our foam products can be cut to fit your room and your wishes. HOW? The best way is with a common electric kitchen knife and a steady hand!
4. WHY would I buy the Larger 2′ x 4′ panels vs. the smaller 2′ x 1′ panels?
a.) Ease of installation…if you are doing a larger space requiring quite a bit of coverage, it is easier and faster to hang the 2′ x 4’s vs. the 2′ x 1’s. b.) Decorative: larger panels mean less SEAMS and thus a cleaner, professional look if you are going to have treated areas that are at least 2′ x 4′ (old industry standard)
5. Is there any advantage to using the smaller 2′ x 1′ SoundTrax Panels?
YES: a.) In general, spreading out your absorptive panels will give you better acoustic performance, especially in smaller spaces and when you are NOT going to have a larger % of your walls and/or ceilings covered with tiles. b.) Shipping costs will generally be around 10% less expensive when buying our regular 2′ x 1′ SoundTrax in 24 sq. ft. (1 box) quantities. WHY…the screwy way UPS and Fedex charge for larger, lightweight boxes. AND c.) YOU want a quantity smaller than 48 square feet…see our eBay Store for 12, 16, 24, and 48 sq. ft. options. and d.) these SoundTraxLG come 6 panels/box in a LARGE box that is 48′ x 24″ x 8″ and may not be very transportable for you!
6. Why are your Prices so low?
We sell DIRECT to you...NO middle-man (Guitar Ctr., etc.). Other “cheap Charlies” do it by using inferior foam and all kinds of false claims they can’t substantiate. We use fire-rated foam that exceeds the specifications of the products we offered when we were at Auralex, and each lot of our foam is tested to meet fire and performance standards.
7. What if I am not sure what I need or where to install it?
SIMPLE…JUST ASK US! The best way for you to get the best solution is to see nextacoustics.com and take advantage of our RoomTune Free Room Consultation Service…upper right corner of our website homepage! Make sure you let us know if you know you want the 2′ x 4′ panels!
8. WHAT if I change my mind AFTER I win the AUCTION?
NO! Not Good! It makes it really hard for us to keep our costs down and prices low if we have to deal with this! BE AWARE: Per eBay rules, YOUR bid is a CONTRACT: Place a bid (or Buy-It-Now) ONLY if you are serious about buying an item. If you are the winning bidder, you are legally obligated by contract to BUY the Item = PAY FOR IT. To keep costs down for others, we will NOT honor REQUESTS to cancel bids. IF YOU do NOT know WHAT YOU are DOING, get help from someone experienced in using eBay…THX
9. How do I attach it to the Wall?
For larger panels, many prefer to use a liquid (water-based) adhesive like PL200 or the proper Liquid Nails. You can also use our FoamFast 24 Spray Adhesive per our website. 3M Super 77 does not work very well. THIRDLY, you can use our NextTape Adhesive Tabs. For 64 sq. ft., we suggest THREE (3) Paks of NextTape (see our eBay Store for discounts). and that each 2″ piece be cut into 1″ pieces so that you can use 8- 1″ pieces per 2′ x 4′ panel.
The wall surface needs to be flat and very clean for the NextTape to work effectively. NextTape is NOT suggested for ceiling treatment/placement.
10. HOW FAST are you GUYS?
SoundTraxLG will ship via UPS within ONE business day of receiving your payment! It is shipped via FedEx or UPS Ground…this is NOT Overnite shipping…we get it on the truck within the one business day!!!
See our feedback regarding FAST SHIPPING!
Product is fire-rated. Additional info at installation advice at nextacoustics.com
Still NOT Convinced??? WHAT???
See our 3300+ 100% Positive FEEDBACK on eBay!!!!
Soundproofing ??? NO! We only included it in the header to Warn YOU!!!
acoustic foam as “Soundproofing” knows little about acoustics
and is blatantly misleading you! Acoustic foam is primarily
intended to make your room sound better by absorbing errant, reflective sound
waves. To minimize sound transmission, you use construction
type products and not acoustic foam!!! An additional layer of drywall will be
much more effective to reduce sound transmission than any foams less than 8″ thick.
Shipping rate(s) are for the continental United States ONLY. We also do not ship
to APO’s. You must have a valid U.S. paypal account or a valid U.S. credit card
to bid (even if you have a U.S. shipping address).
For These LARGE (UPS Oversize #2 size) boxes, we do NOT offer shipping outside of the Continential USA.
Canada, Hawaii, and Alaska: SEE our other eBay Listings for our REGULAR SoundTrax products that ship in smaller boxes. UPS, FedEx and USPS actually make it possible and more economical to ship multiple parcels of smaller boxes than the LARGE box used for this product…it’s a CRAZY World (of Shipping!)
