Materials Needed:

  • Pre-wrapped Acoustic Panels with either Standard Edge or Hard Edge (provided by My Acoustic Panels)
  • Silicone Adhesive (optional, recommended for commercial, institutional, or permanent installations). Tremco Spectrem 2 is My Acoustic Panel's preferred silicone.
  • Measuring Tape, Level, Pencil (for positioning)
  • Impalement Plates (always required and included for all panels by My Acoustic Panels)

Step 1: Planning Your Space: Before starting, it's crucial to identify the best locations for your acoustic panels. Typically, you'll want to target reflection points and areas directly opposite your sound sources. Measure your space and plan the layout of the panels, considering both aesthetics and effectiveness.

Step 2: Preparing the Panels: Unbox your acoustic panels carefully. Since they come already wrapped in fabric, there's no need for additional preparation in this aspect. Ensure the panels are free of any packaging materials before installation.

Step 3: Marking the Wall and Installing Impalement Plates: Mark the positions on the wall where each panel will go, using a level to ensure they're straight. Once marked, attach the impalement plates to the wall at these positions according to the manufacturer's instructions. These plates are essential for securing your panels and are required for all installations.

Step 4: Applying Silicone Adhesive (Optional): If you're opting for a more permanent installation, apply silicone adhesive to the back side of each panel after the impalement plates are in place. This step is recommended for commercial, institutional, or more permanent setups for added security and durability. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the application and ensure a proper bond to the wall.

Step 5: Attaching the Panels: Press the panels onto the impalement plates, ensuring each panel is securely fastened for optimal stability and sound absorption. If silicone adhesive is used, ensure it makes good contact with the wall for effective adhesion.

Step 6: Ensuring Acoustic Balance: Once all panels are installed, test the room's acoustics with various sounds to ensure there's a noticeable improvement. You may need to adjust the placement or add more panels depending on the size and shape of your room.

Conclusion: Congratulations! You've successfully installed your acoustic panels. Enjoy the improved sound quality in your space, whether you're watching movies, recording music, or simply enjoying the peaceful ambiance.
