Sound Reduction

Sound Reduction

KUBE currently manufactures 73 different size vocal booths and sound isolation enclosures, with 3 different levels of sound reduction levels to suit any application. Most competitors only a very limited size range with often minimal sound reduction capabilities.

Our range (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond) of vocal booths and sound isolation enclosures are manufactured and designed to suit different applications requiring extra sound isolation or a controlled environment.

A KUBE vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure will provide you with significant sound isolation. The KUBE range has been specifically manufactured and designed to reduce ambient noise by 75% (Mid range frequencies).

Impractical Sound Testing

Impractical Sound Testing

Many competitors use impractical sound testing methods to inflate their sound reduction figures. Here at KUBE we are not in the business of inflating or distorting sound reduction figures just to make a few more sales. In the end we want happy customers to recommend us and give us good reviews. We appreciate customers do need to do their research and be confident about making a purchase but you also need to be careful about confusing products and misleading claims. Many companies conduct their sound reduction figures using different methods and then use the method that provides the highest sound reduction results. For example: Some companies send a small section of a wall to a laboratory that checks the sound reduction. However this does not reflect the true figures from a fully installed booth. In short these tests do not allow for sound penetration when the room is assembled and do not allow for sound leakage through a panel connection, around a door or through the air ventilation system. Another example is to test the vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure in a specialist laboratory but to date we have not sold a single booth to a customer who lives in a laboratory!.

Keep Things Simple!

KUBE Sound Reduction Figures

At KUBE we like to do things differently and to keep things simple and totally honest. As they say honesty is always the best policy!.

To achieve our readings we used a Bose sound speaker system linked via Bluetooth to an Iphone 7. We placed the Bose speaker inside each type of 1.2m x 1.2m vocal booth (bronze, sliver, gold and diamond). The vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure was located in the middle of our 2500 sq ft workshop. At different frequencies we then took our internal readings with the vocal booth door open and our external sound reduction readings with the door closed. The DB meter was positioned 1.0m from the closed vocal booth door. Greater reductions could be achieved by moving the DB further away from the booth (2.0m, 3.0m or 4.0m) but we wanted to provide you with good old fashioned honest readings and not one that look good on paper!. We know from visiting our competitors websites that we offer the best sound reduction capabilities in the industry for each particular product.

KUBE Bronze Range Sound Reductions Figures

The KUBE Bronze Range is our most economical sound isolation enclosure. The Bronze range is a single-wall design for applications requiring extra sound isolation or a controlled recording environment. This booth is more often used for home and studio applications where there is minimal exterior sound issues.

  1. At 4000Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.
  2. At 1000Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.
  3. At 500Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.
  4. At 200Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.

KUBE Silver Range Sound Reductions Figures

The KUBE Silver Range is our most popular sound isolation enclosure. The Silver range is a heavy duty, multi-wall design for applications requiring professional sound isolation, greater sound control and significant sound reduction. This booth is suitable for most professional recordings and sound isolation applications.

  1. At 4000Hz - Internal Reading 99.2DB - External Reading 38DB - Reduction 61.2DB.
  2. At 1000Hz - Internal Reading 101DB - External Reading 55DB - Reduction 46.0DB.
  3. At 500Hz - Internal Reading 98.5DB - External Reading 52.8DB - Reduction 45.7DB.
  4. At 200Hz - Internal Reading 92.1DB - External Reading 38DB - Reduction 54.1DB.

KUBE Gold Range Sound Reductions Figures

The KUBE Gold Range is our flagship sound isolation enclosure. The KUBE Gold Range is based on the silver range construction but with the added benefit of an Acoustiblok sound isolation barrier on all surfaces. One layer of Acoustiblok has more sound reduction capabilities than a foot thick solid concrete wall.

  1. At 4000Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.
  2. At 1000Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.
  3. At 500Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.
  4. At 200Hz - Internal Reading 0DB - External Reading 0DB - Reduction 0DB.

Manufacturing

Kube Manufacturing

KUBE designs and manufactures a wide range of vocal booths and sound isolation enclosures. We work closely with our customers to address noise problems across a wide range of industries.

Each acoustic vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure is designed to meet customer noise specifications and provides optimum sound reduction for a variety of applications.

KUBE vocal booths and sound isolation enclosures comprise of high grade single or multi layered acoustical panels , specifically manufactured in our own facility.

Construction

Kube Construction

KUBE vocal booths and sound isolation enclosures are fully enclosed acoustic rooms or isolation chambers consisting of a floor, door, window(s), walls and roof. Each unit is a freestanding enclosure manufactured primarily from a combination of high density acoustic boards and layers of acoustic materials.

Depending upon which model chosen the construction consist of either single or multi layers of specialist sound absorbing materials engineered and designed to reduce ambient noise. We only use the highest quality materials available to achieve the best sound properties. Each vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure includes a viewing window manufactured from high quality acoustic laminated glass. KUBE offer a complete bespoke service including: Different external and internal colour and material finishes, fan assisted ventilation systems, wide access doors, ramps, castor bases, internal LED lighting and much much more......

Vocal Booth Interior

Kube Interior

Each KUBE vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure is supplied with a number of acoustic foam panels which attach to the interior walls. The foam panels can be moved around the interior to suit your specific requirements and provide acoustic sound absorption.

Additional acoustic foam panels can be also added for to accommodate different sound requirements. Acoustic foam panels are 50mm thick, pyramid design and are available in red, green, blue, burgundy, orange, grey and purple.

Customers can purchase a vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure with or without the KUBE Air Ventilation And Silencing System. The KUBE air ventilation system eliminates heat build up and regularly exchanges the internal air content. The KUBE silencing system reduces fan noise during recording sessions.

Acoustic Glass

Kube Acoustic Glass

KUBE vocal booth and sound isolation enclosures glass windows comprise of double glazed acoustic glass panels with an air space between. Only specialist acoustic glass windows are supplied in our sound isolation enclosures or vocal booths because of their superior noise reduction capabilities.

The inclusion of a window or glass panel does not reduce the sound reduction capabilities of the Kube and infact improves interior sound reflections.

All KUBE vocal booths or sound isolation enclosures include a minimum of one acoustic glass window or glass panel.

The glass window enables communication between people outside and inside either by hand signals, written media or via an audio link through the sealed cable passages.

Assembly and Disassembly

Kube Assembly and Disassembly

Each KUBE vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure can be fully constructed without the use of any major tools other than a cordless screwdriver drill.

The KUBE modular design also provides a cost effective long term solution, designed not only to last a lifetime but also because of its modular design it can move with you were ever you go.

Each vocal booth or sound isolation enclosure can be easily dismantled and setup again in a different location.

We also offer a complete installation and relocation service for all UK customers.
