The Primacoustic Nimbus is an acoustical device that suspends above
the recording console to control early reflections, flutter echo and
help eliminate standing waves that cause resonant peaks in the critical
mix position. Once in place, you will immediately enjoy a more
controlled and intimate acoustic environment, larger sweet spot and
reduced ear fatigue.
Basic, attractive and very affordable, the Nimbus ships in kit-form
with all the mounting hardware needed to quickly install. The kit
includes a 2" thick, 24" x 48" acoustic panel made from high density
6lb per cubic foot fiberglass and suspension hardware. The fiberglass
is encapsulated in a micromesh and the edges are resin treated to
retain the minute fibers. For an attractive appearance, the panel is
covered in an acoustically transparent fabric. Available in one of
three fabric colors.
The suspension hardware consists of four pannel anchors, four
ceiling anchors and a generous amount of tie wire. To hang the Nimbus,
simply attach the included anchors and adjust the height with the tie
wire. Hardware and fasteners for sheet-rock and wood ceilings are
included in the kit.
The Nimbus absorbs sound energy by converting it to heat. Sound
energy traveling via air vibrations penetrates the panel causing the
minute glass fibers to vibrate and generate heat. This thermo-dynamic
energy transfer effectively absorbs directional sound energy and
prevents it from reflecting into the mix position.
By itself, the 2" thick fiberglass panel is 100% effective for frequencies between 400Hz and 20kHz (see the acoustic absorption chart).
To help control a broader frequency spectrum, the Nimbus may be angled
to vary the air space between the Nimbus and the ceiling. This allows
the backing surface to also absorb reflections off the ceiling.
