Sound Management Group and Quam-Nichols: Team Installs Sound Masking Project in Chicago


Chicago — Sound Management Group and and Quam-Nichols recently teamed up to bring enhanced sound masking to the offices of 3CU in downtown Chicago.

3CU’s recent space addition was enhanced with Quam-Nichols’ MA/E8/S2/T1 Sound Masking Loudspeaker, paired with Sound Management Group’s Modular 70 Volt Sound Shadow Central rack-mounted system.

Adam Rett, manager of operations, Third Coast Underwriters, said, “Quam-Nichols speakers have been complementary to the productivity of our work environment, managing background office noise, and preserving the confidentiality of our private meetings and conversation.”

Sound masking is a method of introducing an electronically produced sound, evenly distributed throughout a space, to overwhelm sound which cannot be blocked or absorbed by any other means. Sound masking provides speech privacy, fewer distractions, and increased employee work productivity when properly engineered, installed, and tuned.
