Sound System Considerations

Although easy to use, successful use of the ClearSonic Panel may require
some adjustments to your sound system. Sound absorbing material placed behind the drums, as well as on the lower half of your ClearSonic Panel is desirable and sometimes necessary to reduce the amount of sound reflecting off the ClearSonic Panel, off the wall surface behind the drummer and back into the performance and audience areas. We recommend the use of our new SORBER panel systems. They are designed for this precise application.

Monitors: With properly placed panels, overall stage volume can be considerably reduced, cleaned up, and focused. Care must be taken to
ensure that enclosed musicians have an effective way to hear other musicians, vocalists, etc. This might require the addition of a stage monitor speaker, headphone monitor, or an "in the ear" monitor. Because of an increase in volume levels on the musician side of the panel, an enclosed musician would be wise to use some type of effective ear protection or monitor on headphones.

PA: Use of the panels may also require the use of additional microphones on the enclosed instrument. This in turn will give the sound person much more control over the relative instrument and vocal levels. This will also allow the enclosed instrument to be more effectively processed and EQ'd, thus producing a much better sound overall.
