Poly Diffusor

The GIK Acoustics Evolution PolyFusor© is a combination of a polycylindrical diffusor and an absorber merged into a single unit. Polycylindrical diffusors, or polyfusors, are known for their excellent dispersion characteristics over a very wide range. The curved front plate of the Evolution PolyFusor© allows for virtually perfect spatial diffusion, while simultaneously allowing lower frequency waves to pass through to the cavity of absorption behind.

The Evolution PolyFusor© provides a great mix of absorption and diffusion capabilities. Polyfusors offer a wider band of spatial diffusion than a typical quadratic residue diffusor, but do not affect the phase of the incident sound. Thus the Evolution PolyFusor© is best suited to spreading mid and high frequencies out in a room.

Evolution PolyFusor FEATURES:

  • GIK Acoustics Poly Diffusor Red w black topPoly diffusors are known for their excellent dispersion characteristics
  • Standard dimensions: 47.25″ tall and 24″ across
  • Very visually attractive with a narrow 5.25″ profile that hugs the walls
  • Standard weight: 20 lbs
  • Available with black, white, or wood caps
  • Virtually a perfect spatial diffusor
  • The Evolution PolyFusor© smoothly transitions as a bass trap from 80Hz, to upper-bass/lower-mid scattering device, to diffusor. Starts diffusing at 600Hz.

The Evolution PolyFusor© is an attractive choice for a room where mid and high frequency chaos needs to be controlled but not removed. In a control room, the Evolution PolyFusor© can be used on the front and back walls, and rear sidewalls to keep the reverberation better mixed. In home theater and two-channel audio rooms, the Evolution PolyFusor© can be utilized on the rear or sidewalls, or behind dipole speakers, to round off sharp reflections. The Evolution PolyFusor© is also right at home anywhere in a tracking room or other large spaces, helping spread out the energy evenly across the whole room. Similar to our bass traps, the Evolution PolyFusor© can be used in corners for enhanced low frequency absorption.

The Evolution PolyFusor© smoothly transitions as a bass trap from 80Hz, to upper-bass/lower-mid scattering device, to diffusor. Starts diffusing at 600Hz.

The Evolution PolyFusor© provides a great mix of absorption and diffusion capabilities. Polyfusors offer a wider band of spatial diffusion than a typical quadratic residue diffusor, but do not affect the phase of the incident sound. Thus the Evolution PolyFusor© is best suited to spreading mid and high frequencies out in a room.

The Evolution PolyFusor© is constructed with a rigid base frame and curved front plate, and filled with absorption material. We wrap the unit up in your choice of fabric, and level off the top and bottom with black, white, or wood caps for a clean finish.

Patented LogoThere’s a difference between a GIK Acoustics product and all others on the market.

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office issued utility patent US 9,091,060 for GIK’s unique, proprietary design of its acoustic absorbers. The patent covers the design and construction of GIK Acoustics’ 242 Acoustic Panels, 244 Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology, and Monster Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology.

In addition to our patent, we separate ourselves from other acoustic treatment manufacturers in 6 primary areas.

QUALITY MATERIALS MEAN QUALITY PRODUCTS:

GIK Acoustics Bright White and Off White sqGIK Acoustics products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. We start with only the highest-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, then we build every panel by hand employing a unique two-frame system.

Unlike other companies who use inexpensive materials, GIK Acoustics panels are crafted with quality insulation material, fabrics and hardwood plywoods.  We start with absorptive insulation material that is intended for room acoustics – not cheap mineral wool whose main purpose is to insulate a ship’s engine room.

We then use carefully selected hardwood plywoods – not cheap imports – to construct our frames.  The difference and chief advantage is dimensional stability. Crossbanded layers and balanced construction mean that hardwood plywood won’t shrink, swell or warp as much as lumber. To finish our panels we offer an array of fine fabrics – from our standard 9 options to the full line of Guilford of Maine panel fabrics.

GIK Acoustics Class A Fire RatingGIK Acoustics products are not only Greensafe, but they carry a Class A fire rating which means we continue to provide our clients with the safest most effective products available. The Class A fire rating means that GIK Acoustics treatments have received the highest rating possible under the ASTM E84, a test used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials.

Our team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap and diffusor to exacting standards ensuring the most attractive, effective and dependable products. The difference is our customers are secure in knowing they receive the very best made-to-order acoustic treatments available.

INFORMATIVE:

Bass Traps & Low FrequenciesWhen it comes to improving the sound quality in a room, many find the science to be overwhelming and the task of DIY’ing acoustic treatments to be daunting. Our solutions are based on the science of acoustics and one of the key dynamics to our success lies in demystifying sound dynamics and room acoustics. We are firm believers in education and our website is full of Educational Articles and Videos. It’s long been our goal to help customers truly understand how sound behaves in a space and the importance and benefits of proper room treatment.

With our blog Acoustics & Audiogeekery, GIK Acoustics aims to explain what you’re hearing and how to improve your audio. Our blog is a resource and a repository of discussions and techniques in the quest to make better audio. Audio is interesting – whether you’re making music, mixing, or simply listening & enjoying – and manipulating technology to solve problems to improve audio is the essence of “audiogeekery.”

INNOVATIVE:

GIK FRT Logo 270Over the past 10 years, GIK Acoustics has pioneered a number of acoustic treatments that you can’t find anywhere else. From the Tri-Trap Corner Bass Trap© to our Soffit Bass Trap© to the built in Scatter Plate, GIK continues to innovate. After a year of research & development, in 2013 we introduced FlexRange Technology – our unique, proprietary system for providing the best in bass trapping and low end absorption.

ALPHA_SERIES_LOGO_FINALIn 2015 we launched the Alpha Series, a line of acoustic panels and bass traps with a wood face which has a mathematical sequence of slots for one-dimensional scattering / diffusion. The Alpha Series literally changes the face of acoustic panels and bass traps by beautifully combining absorption with diffusion and enhancing any room both aesthetically and acoustically with superior quality, high-performing, and stylish room treatments.

GIK Acoustics is also proud to have launched creative, unique products such as: the multifunctional PIB (Portable Isolation Booth), the decorative and effective Impression Series, and the striking, precise Gotham N23 5″ Quadratic Skyline Diffusor.

We are constantly innovating, so look for more solutions and creative treatments from GIK Acoustics.

ENVIRONMENTAL:

Greensafe GIK AcousticsIt’s our commitment to use environmentally safe materials for all our products.  We use ECOSE absorption material, eco-friendly wood and we offer customers recycled fabric options as well. Greensafe means GIK Acoustics products are friendlier on air quality, the environment, and your budget.
