IsoPac E is a large vocal booth that can accommodate up to three people. It is also is also well suited for recording guitars, brass, woodwinds, and other acoustic instruments.
The above system is shown with three S4-2 units which are 44 inches high and 49" wide. Please note that the S4-2 SORBER units are also about 2 inches wider than two units of A5 ClearSonic Panel. This means that the outside S4-2 units will extend beyond the outside edge of the A5-6 ClearSonic Panel by a couple of inches on both sides. Twelve S2 baffles secured with Velcro could be substituted in place of the S4-2 units for a better fit (meaning more interior space) at the same price but you lose the ability to use the free-standing S4-2 baffles in other possible applications. Two levels of S2 panels would be 48 inches high while the S4-2 is 44 inches high.
As with all of the IsoPacs, this one may be customized to fit your specific size and sound reduction needs. IsoPacs A, B, E, F, G, and H feature the ClearSonic Lid System, that helps reduce the amount of sound that would normally escape upwards. The Lid is especially helpful if you have a room with high, hard ceilings. IsoPacs C and D are for applications where the lid is not necessary, but still feature SORBER absorption baffles to control the reflected sound. IsoPacs E through H can be used for a variety of applications including vocal and voice-over work.
ClearSonic Panels are a reflective sound barrier but do not absorb sound while SORBER is a great sound absorber but not a great barrier. Therefore, our most effective systems, such as MegaPac, use ClearSonic Panels all the way around the perimeter. Having ClearSonic Panels with Height Extenders in the back also greatly reduces the size of the open area where sound can escape. Because of this, MegaPac and similar booths will reduce sound leakage up to 70% while systems with only SORBER in the back will reduce leakage around 50%. The rear panels are usually not attached to the front panels. They simply butt together or overlap a bit. An access "door" panel is created at the overlap location.
