What is Directional Sound?
Directional sound by default can be complex, sound waves are typically omni-directional, particularly low-end bass frequencies which makes them difficult to direct or control without specialist knowledge.
Directional sound is particularly relevant in visitor attraction applications and in public areas where sound might need to be contained or directed.
Specialist Directional Sound loudspeakers allow you to direct your message, narration, sound effect or music to target your audience with clean, accurate sound.
Sound Directions has a great deal of experience designing sound systems using directional sound to define areas in which sound is heard. This can be both on a small, intimate project or large, public scale.
Sound Directions are experts in Directional Sound and can advise, design and support in this often challenging and difficult area.
Why Does Directional Sound Matter?
Directional Sound is all about delivering message with clarity and controlling noise pollution.
We live in a world where in order to attract attention, colours are becoming brighter, noises are getting noisier.
Directional sound allows us to reverse this trend by targeting sound so that we are able to get our messages across with clarity and without adding to and increasing ambient noise.
Why is Directional Sound Different?
Directional Sound is about projecting sound in a controlled manner.
Normal loudspeakers project sound through 360º in a very un-controlled manner whereas Directional loudspeakers emit sound in a much more controlled manner.
Reproducing audio in such a controlled manner produces outstanding clarity.
This clarity of message can be used to catch listeners attention without disturbing others nearby.
How Effective is Directional Sound?
Directional Sound, when used correctly, is extremely effective.
It does however have its limitations.
Directional Sound lacks bass frequency response, therefore it is not suitable for playing music.
Its effectiveness is likely to be retarded where background noise levels fluctuate.
What are the benefits of Directional Sound?
Directional Sound has many benefits including;
Allowing multiple sound sources to play in one area
Limiting noise pollution to people nearby
Lower volume levels are required for clear intelligible sound
Audio messages are projected clearly
