QRD® 734 1D Wood Sound Diffuser
The phase grating surface of the QRD® 734 is designed to provide a more uniform sound field through mid and high frequency diffusion while the natural wood construction of the unit limits the amount of sound energy that is removed by absorption. It has become a classic shape in architectural acoustics; from its birth in 1987 it can now be found in church, theater and recording studio spaces all over the world. Its wide bandwidth, low cost, and broad selection of finishes also make it a logical choice for music education facilities, auditoriums and performing arts facilities.
The QRD® 734 is available in a wide variety of finishes, including wood veneer, laminates, melamine coatings and painted surfaces. It is designed to fit into a standard, reinforced T-Bar grid; more often, it is flush mounted to a wall or ceiling with the included mounting cleat.
Interfering reflections that degrade speech intelligibility, gain before feedback, and music quality can be controlled by absorption and/or diffusion. When absorption alone is used to control reflections it creates "dead" sounding spaces that lack the benefit of late order reflections which can greatly enhance the acoustic performance of a space.
The QRD® 734 is first and most applied sound diffusing panel in the world. Rather than remove the energy that strikes key surfaces in a space, the QRD® preserves the energy by uniformly distributing the energy back into the space. The onset of diffusion for the QRD® 734 occurs at roughly 320 Hz.
