Stillpoints Aperture Acoustic Treatment
Acoustic Room Treatments like no other.
The Stillpoints Aperture acoustic panels represent a whole new form of acoustical treatment. The Stillpoints Aperture is actually three products in one: an absorber, a diffuser, and a resonator.
The Apertures also continually adapt to the dynamic changes in the amplitude and frequency of the music. While static, conventional acoustic treatments that offer one continuous level of absorption or diffusion would offer too much absorption at low levels and not enough at higher ones, the Stillpoints Apertures utilize a blend of absorption materials, and a unique design of internal chambers to trap the acoustic energy. The diffusion aspect of the Stillpoints Aperture breaks up the wave forms which will ad mid to high frequency absorption and reduction. The resonator aspect offers control of the lower frequencies only when it's needed. Thoughtful placement can achieve wonderfully controlled bass frequencies with dynamic lifelike quality and speed. With bass energy controlled, one can enjoy a light, lively, sparkling room of shimmering cymbals and explosive drum attacks, with wonderfully clear midrange and vocals at all amplitude levels.
Apertures are available with oak, cherry or walnut frames and with white, black or cream fabric.
- Choose from three natural wood frame species: Light Oak, Cherry, or Black Walnut.
- Match with one of three fabric colors: Cream, Black, or White
- Choose one of three optional fabrics from the Simon Marsh Print Collection for an additional $175. Simon Marsh Photography is on display in every issue of HiFi+ magazine.
- Submit your own image that is not copyright protected ($40.00 file setup fee and $225 print fee).
Standard Aperture wood/insert combinations are Light Oak/Cream, Cherry/Cream, and Black Walnut/Black. The Standard offerings are stocked by Stillpoints. Any other wood species/insert
combinations are considered custom orders and require additional lead time and possible upcharge.
You can for an additional charge have non-copyrighted art printed onto the fabric of the Aperture. This is a dye sublimation process that actually dyes the fabric, so that there is no acoustical degredation of the Aperture.
Using the Stillpoints Aperture in your room
In small to medium rooms we recommend starting with 3 panels. One placed on the wall behind the loudspeakers centered between them with the bottom edge at midrange tweeter height. The other two panels are placed at the first reflection points flanking either loudspeaker at the side walls. Again the bottom edge should be about midrange or tweeter height.
