Acoustic Sound diffusers are designed to scatter or disperse sound waves, thereby reducing standing waves and echoes to improve sound clarity. Diffusers (or Diffusors) are typically used in critical listening environments like recording studios, control rooms, music production and live music rooms.
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.
Acoustic diffusers are used to treat echoes and reflections. Whereas 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.
