They appear to be like the 242 panels but in skinnier or more squared up shapes. I could use some of the 12 x 48 x 2 " panels, but they are sold in boxes of 6 and I don't need that many. For specific applications and for making different colored and sized panel arrangements for aesthetic purposes.

That's what I was thinking but they only seem to be a couple of inches thick. I mean, everyone at GIK, and all other companies, say the thicker and larger the surface area the better. So I understand and welcome the different shapes but not at a lesser performance. Why not make the 242 or 244 in some different shapes??

Maybe that's the eventual plan. Expand with the 4" versions after getting these up and running, see how sales go, reassess package sizes, etc.

Hey guys,


The Spot panels is built with only a 2" profile and does come in 3 standard sizes. And yes we do sell them by the box to maximize shipping for the customer. If you do need less then what is in a box you can email use to price out shipping for you.

Also we can custom make the 242 and the 244 but there is a up charge for this. The 242 and th 244 are make totally different then the spot panel. The spot panel is more what you see on other sites that are just a framed up panel vs the 242/244 that has a 2 frame system. It maximizes the absorption with sound coming in from the sides and has a built in air gap.

Hi Bpack,


The Spot Panel was introduced more for commercial customers. They are a thin profile panel usually used to reduce reverberation and not really for small rooms dominated by modes. For a typical room, we usually suggest starting with the 242s as the thinnest treatment since the built in air gap allows for better absorption at a lower frequency and the frame system allows a wider variety of mounting options.

We could do a smaller order if you contact us directly. We can also custom size our 244s or 242s to be a different size if necessary as well.


Edit, also just to clarify Glenn's statement earlier:

He's saying the 242s and 244s are what maximize the absorption by absorbing sound coming from the side with the built in air gap here - not the Spot Panel. Worded kinda funny so I figured I'd clarify.


The Spot Panels just have a frame that wraps around the edge of the panel, so you don't get any side absorption nor a built in air gap with them. They're primarily for reducing reverberation @ about 350 Hz and above.
