ATS Acoustic panels / superb performers!!!

Well I just recently added a few absorption panels from ATS Acoustics (3) 2'x2'x4" & (1) 2'x4'x4". The build quality is outstanding & their fabric choices are pretty extensive. These new panels combined with my GIK monster bass trap (1) 2'x4'6" & the Echo Busters corner traps (2ea) have really put a smile on my face. It's so hard to believe what actually happens. The music just takes on a whole new presence, the bass is just so damn tight now I can hardly believe it. My friends actually checked to see if my SVS sub was on. They couldn't believe it either. The vocals & instruments are so well defined & the soundstage has taken on a whole new dimension. I'm telling you if you've never thought about treating your room - mistake - BIG MISTAKE!!! It has got to be the best bang for the buck you can possibly spend. Forget about new cables, IC's, power cords, just get involved with your room. By the way ATSacoustics.com is the most reasonably priced company I have found to date. They only do absorption panels but are working on bass traps. They also sell all the material for the DIY crowd. But for me they were so cheap it didn't make sense to go the DIY route. Just do it!!!!

Re: ATS Acoustic panels / superb performers!!!

What good is a good system in a lousy room?....What good is a good room with a lousy system...can't make chicken soup out of chicken SH*T. What good is a good system in a good room with lousy music? What good is a good system in a good room, with good music with BAD ears? What good is a good system, in a good room, with good music, with good ears, but a small penis?

WOW!!! What words of wisdom from the peanut gallery. Please, lay off the sauce before you ramble on with other senseless replies. Doesn't AA have a forum where you can join in?

I too have been looking at those panels from ATS.

I was wondering if you could confirm whether these panels have a wooden back or not and how did you fastened them to the wall?

thanks
Michele

Yes, they do come with a wooden back. They can also be ordered with an open back. They have 2 pre drilled holes & come with proper length nails that make them super easy to mount. I had them up in less than a minute. The construction is excellent & they do perform as advertised. Their fabric selection is also pretty good. Hope this helps.

Re: ATS Acoustic panels / superb performers!!!

My room is fairly large at 13x32ft. This is my set up so far. I have (1) 2'x4'x6" monster bass trap from GIK Acoustics, (1) 2'x4'x4", & (3) 2'x2'x4" absorption panels all from ATS acoustics & (2) corner traps from Echo Busters. The sound improvements were quite remarkable. I recommend you get started on your room. All panels are on the (13') front wall behind my main speakers

Cheers,
Phil

Pears, this is the most intelligent response I have ever read to one of DUP's posts. Forgive him. He has Wurlitzers and Van Alstines. Like Grendel, he wanders slavering in the moors, seeking bliss he can never know. I agree with you. Mess with the room first. But, the other stuff matters, too... The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single martini.
