Music Gear Review: Auralex ProPanel and Prokits

Auralex ProPanel ™ fabric wrapped acoustical absorption panels including the (pictured) ProPanel Cloud panels are part of the all-in-one ProKits ™ acoustic treatment kits. Absorption panels are placed at the first reflection points on the left and right side walls, on either side of the listening position, to reduce unwanted reflections of mid and high frequencies. In combination, ProPanel Cloud panels hang horizontally overhead to reduce sound reflections coming off the hard ceiling.

The ProPanel mix cloud system is configurable in three sizes: 4’ x 4’, 4’ x 6’ and 4’ x 8’. These are all two-inch thick beveled-edged panel systems that have a frameless design and include mounting hardware. They are available in Obsidian or Sandstone colors.

Auralex sells three kits based on the acoustic treatment requirements of your room’s size.
