ACOUSTICS & THE CHALLENGES
Apr 7, 2016
Beneath the bowels of Ber Street
Here at Martins, we’re always looking for new ways to improve our customers’ listening experiences in store. And we have something pretty nifty up our sleeves.
Below one of our demo rooms is an old flint walled cellar dating back many moons. But we were encountering an issue with sound - particularly lower frequencies - dissipating through the floor into the cellar, reducing the audible bass in the demo room.
To fix this issue, we got our in-house custom installation team to take a look. They decided to install two layers of dense rockwool insulation (200mm) and reinforce the flooring with akros. This would give us a rock-solid floor with zero flex, and complete insulation from the room below.
When they were done, we set up a hi fi demonstration, and the changes made a marked improvement on the acoustic properties of the room; it was worth every penny!
Don't take our word for it though. Customers are always welcome to come in and have a listen for themselves. Our demo rooms are available for you to listen to any of our products Monday to Saturday.
