Proof Of Performance
RPG’s in house Acoustical Research Center, The ARC, is currently nearing completion. The ARC will be one of the largest reverberation chambers in North America. The center will house RPG’s goniometer array for ISO diffusion testing and one of the only deep bass impedance tubes in the world (measuring in at 22’ long, weighing 7-tons and capable of testing down to 20Hz, the threshold of hearing). The ARC will be an independently certified ISO acoustical test facility.
The RPG Backstory
RPG Diffusor Systems, Inc., a predecessor company founded in 1983 by Dr. Peter D’Antonio, closed its doors in 2017 and no longer operates. From its launch in 1984 and throughout its history, RPG Diffusor Systems led the industry in diffusion research, engineering and design. That company established RPG products as a cornerstone of the entertainment industry – pushing the evolution of the designs you see today for performing arts, worship, cinema, recording and broadcast facilities. RPG Acoustical Systems is carrying forward and advancing the tradition of innovative work in the field of acoustical design and production.
