Micro Room silent speaker enclosure

First: the MICRO ROOM SOUNDS GREAT!!  if it did not there would be no point.

Want to use your amp but it makes too much…. ‘sound'?? The Micro Room is a great solution for issues created by amplified instruments with open speakers. It is also a fast, easy and effective way to smooth digital sounds.

A real world problem solver
In the studio: Using the micro room allows you to hear what is being recorded via your monitors for better tracking results.
Micro Room allows live recording of electric guitar in the same space with acoustic instrument and vocals.

On the acoustic or QUIET stage: Micro Room allows you to send the sound of your preferred rig with your preferred setting to the board for perfect house and monitor mixes.

Late night tracking at home: Allow others to sleep while you wail.

The digital domain:  (In-Direct Box) Output your Digital reverb, keyboard, drum machine etc. to an amp and run it thru the Micro Room to add some Analog Smoothness & Air to the sound… better yet ..get two and go stereo.


What you get
Micro Room comes complete with a great sounding Jensen instrument speaker (the best sounding speaker i could find .....and i tried a LOT of em), gooseneck, mic clip, internal mic cable, acoustic treatment, two ¼” speaker inputs ( one up to 15 watts and one for up to 50 watts) and one  XLR mic output........Just install your mic and go.

Micro Room is constructed from high mass MDF for maximum sound proofing (Lighter weight plywood or Pine enclosures allow more sound to escape)  All joints are screwed and glued for maximum stability.

Thinking inside the box
When I developed the original MICRO ROOM I tested several  speakers of various sizes in various size enclosures.  The Speakers that sounded so good in a combo or Cabinet just did not sound right in sealed isolation enclosured that were small enough to move.  And the volume produced outside the box was way too loud.

I realized that rather than thinking  ‘outside the box’  I needed to think ‘inside  the box’. i discoverd that the actions of a speaker in a small sealed isolation enclosure bare very little similarity to the way an open speaker acts.  I will not tell all ...but... by choosing my 'battles' properly I was able to build a much better sounding, much quieter, and MUCH smaller unit.

Micro Room history
v1 was released in the mid 90’s.  The unit would handle 100 watts and sounded quite good.  But on some amps it could cause some odd transformer distortions. The original version included an installed SM57 mic. In order to survive shipping it had to be firmly fixed in one position and was not adjustable. Many stated a preference for different microphone and most did not like the non-adjustable aspect.

With v2 we opted to go with no mic and install a gooseneck and clip and let you choose the microphone and position it where you want ........and make the unit more affordable to boot.

The original version was made from Ply which is rather light for sound proofing duty. v2 is constructed from High Density MDF for better sound proofing. The speaker for v1 became unavailable in the early 2000's and production stopped.

NOW
After many requests I began the search for another speaker that would work in the unique environment created by a silent speaker enclosure.  I finally found a real guitar speaker that was the right size, handled enough power and sounded great (check out the demo!).

Starting with the speaker I reverse engineered the system and managed to trim off a little size, make it a little more people friendly with a much larger removable panel  and most importantly it sounds even better.

v2. ….. enjoy
