The GIK Acoustics 242 Acoustic Panel is a professionally constructed velocity absorber with a rigid core and is broadband in nature – meaning they deal with the entire frequency range. 242 Acoustic Panels are made with a two-frame system allowing sound to be absorbed from the sides while maintaining a crisp, sharp edge.
The 242 Acoustic Panel has a built-in air gap which not only increases low end absorption, but allows the panel to hang truly flush on the wall using an integrated wire on the back. Other acoustic panels are constructed as mere fabric wrapped over rigid fiberglass or a wooden frame which does not allow the proper space between the absorption materials and the wall and makes it nearly impossible to truly flush-mount.
The 242 Acoustic Panel is ideal when used in combination with other GIK Acoustics products. We recommend mounting GIK Acoustics bass traps in each corner and other low-end trouble spots. The 242 Acoustic Panel can be mounted at the primary and secondary reflection points on the walls and as a cloud on the ceiling. This combination is an effective way to fine-tune a room.

WANT TO ADD BUILT-IN SCATTERING / DIFFUSORS TO YOUR PANELS?
Broadband treatments offer great performance with an attractive price and when coupled with diffusion and scattering, can give your room a completely balanced sound throughout, without over-dampening high frequencies.
The GIK Acoustics built-in Scatter Plate option allows even decay time from low to high frequencies while providing the necessary space for absorption to flatten the frequency response. Read more about the new GIK Acoustics Scatter Plate here.
After adding GIK Acoustics 242 Acoustic Panels to your cart, you can then select Scatter Plate from the Diffusion Products menu and have them built into your 242 Acoustic Panels for only $49.00 per panel.
BOOM STAND BRACKETS
Instead of mounting the panel on the wall, we offer our Boom Stand Brackets. Installing these brackets on the panel allows it to attach to any boom stand turning your 242 Acoustic Panel into a gobo or a portable vocal booth. For only $12 each you can add increased flexibility to our acoustic panels. (Boom stand not included.) Click here to add boom stand brackets to your order.
CUSTOM METAL STANDS
Another alternative that adds flexibility to the 242 Acoustic Panels are our Custom Metal Stands. Our metal stands are modern, contemporary and powder coated for greater durability.

“Once [the panels] were installed we did a test recording. The drums sounded great! Of course there was still some liveliness from the room but we’re getting a much tighter and more direct sound on the microphones and I love it!”
