    Stillpoints Aperture MK1 to MK2

    I figure since I have owned several Aperture panels over the years, and since Stillpoints does an absolutely horrible job of providing any photos or details, that I would show you the differences...

    MK1 on bottom, MK2 on top

    The new panels have better fit and finish, also trap from larger area, but otherwise sound the same.

    You do know who Bruce Jacobs is right?

    Save the photo. I really don’t care. I get my facts from the company.

    Up to you Myles... the border I referred to thinking was foam is actually hard... so probably wood. Its the same 2" in from the outside edge of the panel on the old and new. Therefore... it traps from the same area

    The area is in the form of depth.

    Trapping from a larger area and larger internal volume are 2 different things

    “The Stillpoints Aperture’s unique trapping system captures an area of wave form much broader than its small surface area would suggest.”

    So what is the difference between a “larger area” and a “larger internal volume?”

    This is becoming silly.

    I hope some one finds the photos helpful in their search for knowledge. I have owned as many as 12 aperture panels at once and can say that they certainly do work. Can I hear any difference between the mk1 and 2... absolutely not. I do appreciate the marginally better quality and flush design though. And I do mean marginal.

    Okay, guys, some basic math to provide some accuracy with respect to comments above:

    Area = length x width

    Volume = length x width x depth

    As this is an acoustical panel that absorbs acoustical energy at different frequencies (wavelegths), my guess is that it is the volume of the panel that is one of the key metrics.
