RPG have a lot of products that are not listed on their website > RPG Catalog
Everything RPG does is made-to-order. They have some unique and very high performance products. They can do all kinds of sizes of panels, with custom cutouts, fabrics, etc. Very flexible.
The Vicoustic DC2 is a better product than the RPG Skyline. Smaller "blocks" = better HF diffusion performance. They also put dye in their EPS instead of painting them, if you want a dark color. And they are about 1/2 the price.
We can help AVSers with product selection (though it's better to have a full acoustic treatment design done, specific to your room and speaker radiation pattern, rather than buying a bunch of expensive stuff and not have it perform) and also have a special AVS discounts.
We also work with Listen Audio who have done custom stuff for us before. Most of the theaters we've designed in the last 12 months have a Listen Audio "slat absorber/diffusers" on the side walls between the speakers and seating area. We like slat absorbers/diffusers, but again they should be designed for the speaker radiation pattern of your LCRs and the angles of incident sound from the LCRs. You can alter the open area of the acoustic treatment to provide more or less high frequency absorption. More on slat diffusers in this case study of our
AVS Theater of the Month "The Savoy"
. Since then we are using the Listen Audio High Planks
instead of on-site fabricated slats.
Listen Audio also make a 1'x1' 2" thick diffuser to our specification. We custom did that one for
(still in build). They also have a 2'x2' which we used in
(done). We also integrated the 2'x2' into another (secret) client's reflective (no 1" absorber here, thank you very much) star ceiling to provide acoustic treatment, completely hidden behind fabric and indistinguishable from the rest of the star ceiling.
