In acoustical foam, quantity matters more than shape. This is because the softness of the foam provides no reflections on its own - it simply absorbs. So cutting the foam into pyramid or wedge shapes only reduces the amount of foam available to absorb sound. The UA-WPB's solid foam base gives the maximum amount of sound absorption in the smallest possible space.
Maximum High Frequency Attenuation
The UA-WPB-12 catches more of the upper-mid to high frequencies to help focus the front-end of your space, preventing phasing, comb-filtering, and other interferences that can blur stereo imaging and lead to bad mix decisions. Use the UA-WPB-12 around your mix position to eliminate bad reflections while still providing for a tight and full bass response.
Controlled, Not Dead
There is a tendency when treating a space to simply "deaden" the environment by completely covering surfaces in absorptive materials. But this is not the best approach to critical listening. Better is to have the right balance of live and dead surfaces, so as to create a room with a controlled response to sound. Using the UA-WPB-12 in combination with other Ultimate Acoustics products provides the range of surfaces needed for precise room tuning. This gives a much more realistic, pleasing and productive reference situation for mixing, tracking, or just plain listening!
