With professional users that range from musicians such as Scott Henderson, Nathan East and John Rzeznik to engineers and producers such as Butch Walker, James Michael and George Seara, Primacoustic knows what it takes to make a room sound good.

Taking its popular London 8 and London 10 preconfigured room acoustic kits and adding a residential touch, the Canadian audio company is now offering paintable versions to make them more friendly in a variety of interior spaces that include dedicated two-channel audio rooms, home theaters and multimedia environments.

The kits are now available for shipment. The company points out they provide everything a dealer will need to address common sound problems in commercial and residential environments.

"The London series of room kits make it super simple to effectively treat many spaces and with this new paintable line, you can eliminate any concern about how the panels will integrate with existing decor," says Jay Porter of Primacoustic. "The kits are an ideal solution for home theaters, two-channel audiophile listening rooms, project studios, video post production suites, theater projection booths, video conferencing rooms, voice-over booths, broadcast suites and podcast studios."

The kits address primary reflections, flutter echo and excessive bass. Dealers can mount the panels through the use of its Impalers that eliminate the need to glue the panels to a wall and ceiling surfaces. In addition to the Impalers, the kits also include wall anchors, screws and a drill bit.

Elaborating on the construction of the products, Primacoustic states that each panel is made from high density 6-pound glass wool for even absorption. It points out the panels' edges are treated with resins and fully encapsulated with micromesh to prevent any dusting.

In addition, Primacoustic notes that originally the panels were available in a choice of gray, beige and black fabric coverings. The new paintable panels are made in Primacoustic's Absolute White, and like the company's other panels, the London kits are Class A fire rated. MAP for the London 8 kit is $230, and the MAP for the London 10 kit is $500.

Primacoustic will be exhibiting with its sister brands Radial Engineering and Jensen Transformers in booth #6618 at the 2015 CEDIA Expo in Dallas.

Primacoustic explains how to estimate how many acoustical panels to use within a room:
