What Are The Dimensions of Acoustical Shells?

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Apr 24, 2019 11:00:00 AM

We receive request for quotes all the time asking for acoustical shells/band shells/music shells, whichever area you need these clarity enforcing shells for your performances. Knowing the dimension, especially the width of acoustical shells, will help determine how many you will need in the back of your stage setup. Another important note is that the shells can be curved inward into a V shape in order to fit more acoustical shells in the stage setup. A straight line across the back of the stage works as well.

To help answer the first question we need answered to provide you a quote, we have our acoustical shells dimensions below with recommendations for how many you might need based on your space.
