The BAD Panel (or Flatffusor) by RPG Diffusor Systems is a hybrid absorber/diffuser providing precise acoustic control in a compact panel.
If you’re looking to control both absorption and diffusion, the BAD Panel provides incredible advantages:
• A shallow profile compared with other diffusers.
• The flat panel design allows it to be easily hidden to blend in with any environment.
• Great value for your money (absorption and diffusion in a single, low profile panel).
The BAD Panel (formally called a Binary Amplitude Diffsorber) is a flat hybrid surface constructed from a porous absorber faced with a hard perforated mask, covered with fabric. The perforations form a binary pattern which has been numerically optimized to provide diffusion at higher frequencies, a combination of diffusion and absorption between 1-2 kHz, and pure absorption below 1 kHz. The brilliantly simple design is based on a mathematical process patented by RPG.
Thanks to the BAD panel you no longer need to add excessive high frequency absorption (which would render your room acoustically dead) to get a precisely controlled environment. Use BAD Panels to control reflections, optimize reverberation time, and shape the acoustical character of your room without sacrificing the liveliness.
