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.
