High Reverberation Solution for Boston Herald Radio


Before And After BHRFor their second anniversary, Boston Herald Radio has undergone a major soundproofing overhaul within their Boston based radio station to improve the acoustics and performance on the radio, and it was done with the help of New England Soundproofing!

Tom Shattuck, the producer from Boston Herald Radio, called New England Soundproofing with some sound issues that needed to be corrected. The Boston Herald Radio is an audio and video radio station that broadcasts news, sports, and political coverage on 1510AM and 830AM radio. They also do video of the high political interviews for their online viewers.

When New England Soundproofing came into the radio station, it was clear that the reverberation was way too high and that the 1” thick, fiberglass “online purchased” panels where not working. “The NRC of the fiberglass panels are nothing compared to the NRC of the REVRB™ Panels produced by New England Soundproofing” says New England Soundproofing owner Joseph Drago. “We needed to get rid of the cheaper glued on panels and create a custom system for the radio station!”

New England Soundproofing wanted to incorporate some of the beautiful Boston area photos within the panels using the REVRB™ Acoustic Art panels, along with some basic REVRB™ Panels. The design was to make it not an eyesore, but more of a decorated piece.

“One unique structure we built for the Boston Herald Radio is to create a Acoustic Panel Green Screen” commented Steven Drago of New England Soundproofing. “When we first came into the studio we noticed a green screen behind the hosts, this was used for filming and being able to put different digital background behind the hosts. Anthony came up with a great idea to create a REVRB™ Green Screen that will act like a digital backdrop but also absorb the noise within the room!”

“It’s the printed images on the panels that catch your eye,” said Tom Shattuck, executive producer of Herald Radio. “The guys came up with the idea to use iconic photographs taken by our photographers here at the Herald to turn the studio into a virtual art gallery. It’s a showpiece now, which is important because we have presidential candidates, celebrities and media from around the globe coming in here.” 

New England Soundproofing has been creating custom solutions for many years and this is just one project of the hundreds that yield the highest of satisfaction.
