• Why should I choose Verbox?

    Verbox makes professional and affordable acoustic treatment products for a variety of applications based right here in Melbourne. From recording studios to home theatres to commercial spaces, our panels will help you achieve the controlled listening environment you are seeking.

    We have years of experience in research and development, trialing various materials and designs, as well as consulting with a number of acousticians to ensure we produce exceptional quality in the most cost efficient way.

    With simple, well constructed designs, they can be visually discreet or be used as a main feature with one of our custom coloured fabrics or plywood frames.

  • I’m setting up a home studio, what do I need?

    This can vary depending on your budget, what you want to achieve and what the space will be used for. If you’re a regular home recorder, with a regular sized room, you should be looking at least 8 panels for decent coverage as a minimum. We usually don’t recommend anything less than this as we don’t want to lower the expectations of quality results. All of our packages are heavily discounted and come with free delivery for Melbourne Metro areas for this exact reason.

    If you would like a more detailed approach, feel free to contact us for assistance.

  • Can your products be used for commercial spaces such as bars and restaurants etc?

    Yes! We have sold to many commercial spaces such as dance studios, yoga studios, restaurants, bars and more. The range of products that we offer is suitable for any noisy environment. For larger coverage areas, we offer a range of large format panels that are much better value. We usually come out and quote for these types of fit outs so best to contact us first before purchasing online.

  • What spaces can your products be used for?

    Home theater and HiFi, any audiophile, general living areas, classrooms, boardrooms, stadiums, churches, halls, offices and other commercial spaces, podcasting, rehearsal rooms, music venues, music and production studios, mastering studios and other critical listening spaces. Basically anywhere there is noise, we can help.

  • How long will it take to get my panels?

    Generally no longer than 2 weeks but will vary depending on stock levels and current demand. Best to ask first if you need them in a hurry. We try to keep an adequate stock of Black products only.

  • Do you offer a range of fabrics and colours?

    We offer a wide range of colours in Cotton Drill only. The colour samples can be viewed on each product page at the bottom of the page.

  • Do you make custom sized panels or make any alterations to Verbox products?

    No, unfortunately we do not do anything custom.

  • Do you do bulk pricing or discounts of any kind?

    We keep our prices as low as possible so everyone is always getting a great deal. We offer discounts for bulk purchases and packes which are all found on our online store. We also sell wholesale to retailers that have online and physical stores. Please contact us for more details on this.

  • What sound absorption material do you use and why?

    We use a high density polyester insulation that is custom made for our products but is very similar to general household insulation. The density options are 20kg/m3 and 48kg/m3 and are highly effective absorption materials.

    Polyester emits no breathable fibres, is 100% allergy free, lightweight and has high performing sound absorption properties which is why it’s becoming a great alternative choice to common but highly irritable options such as glass and rockwool. Visit the 'Learn' section for more details.

  • Why do you use 20kg/M3 density? Isn’t denser better?

    It really depends on the application, thickness and material being used. Polyester, glass-wool and rock-wool at the same density for example have different performances, so you shouldn’t only look at density as a reliable comparative unit of measurement. Gas Flow Resistivity is generally more broadly translatable across acoustic products, however does not seem to reflect the performance of polyester products.

    In terms of thickness, the basic rule is that the thinner the absorption material, the denser the material should be for better efficiency. And vice versa.

    Please visit the 'Learn' section for more details on this subject.

  • So you use Polyester, is it safe?

    Yes, absolutly. Polyester insulation is the safest insulation product you can use. It emits no smell or fibres and requires no PPE when handling.

  • Can I pick up products from the warehouse?

    No, unfortunately we do not allow pick-ups from our warehouse. We offer affordable flat rate shipping regaurdless on the size of the order. If you are only buying a few items and would like to save on shipping, you can purchase from DJ City or one of our other retailer stores.

  • Are your products tested in a lab for sound absorption?

    Yes and no. The insulation we use comes with their relevant data sheets for most of the thicknesses we use in our products. We have also done extensive testing at our showroom in Coburg. All of our products can also be used with an air gap behind (max. depth of insulation) which increases the low end absorption marginally.

    We have consulted with an acoustics engineer and compiled various research data to accurately conclude the reflecting performances for the products listed.

  • Do you use an acoustically transparent fabric?

    The main fabric we use is a heavy cotton drill. It is not as transparent as speaker cloth fabric for example but is the most practical alternative as it is highly durable, non transparent (visually) and still passes the breath-through test. The fabric is in no way reflective so does not diminish the performance of the products. If anything, would add a small amount of high-end absorption.

  • How are your products cheaper than other similar acoustic products?

    We prioritise keeping our prices as low, without jeopardising the quality of the products. We purchase all of our supplies in very large quantities, have a streamlined production process and a great passion for efficiency to bring our customers the best possible value. So you can benefit from getting a well treated room, at a reasonable price.

  • Why should I buy your products instead of making them myself?

    We have been making these panels since late 2017. That's years worth of research and development that goes into our products. As mentioned we buy our supplies in large quantities at lower costs allowing us to pass on those savings to our customers. You could save some money overall, but may find the results, time and effort invested is hardly worth it.

  • Do your products sound proof a room or is this a service you offer?

    The products we make will make a room quieter, but they won’t fully soundproof a room. This is the difference between sound treating and sound proofing. Sound proofing is only really achieved within the construction of the building. This is not a service we offer. You’d would need to talk to a specialist builder or someone who specialises in a room within a room construction. Visit the 'Learn' section for more details.

  • Can I find your products in retails stores?

    At this point we are an online store only. We aim to be in some retail stores in the coming months. If you are a retailer, please feel free to contact us to discuss options.

  • Where are all your materials sourced?

    Our materials are sourced from local suppliers but are mostly mostly manufactured overseas. Please visit the 'Materials' section for more details.

  • What is the environmental impact of your products?

    We keep our ethics in check when it comes to the environment with our minimal waste rule. We source locally where possible and recycle or reuse offcuts to the best of our abilities. Please visit the 'Materials' section for more information.
