Seattle, WA (January 19, 2006)–In a recent renovation featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the design team called on Auralex for acoustic treatments. Auralex recommended its new AudioTile and assisted the crew during the installation of the product in a vocal recording booth.

The construction took place in early November and the special two-hour episode, “Kirkwood Family,” aired on January 15, 2006.
Tracy Chandler, director of sales and marketing for Auralex, explained, “One of their design team members was familiar with one of our products commonly used in professional recording studios. After a quick introduction to AudioTile, the designer knew it had the kind of eye-catching, high-end appeal they were looking for.
Auralex’s Brian Wheat spent two days in Seattle working on the Extreme project. Wheat shared, “To be involved with a show like Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is a great opportunity for a company like ours to strengthen our visibility with the general public. It was an unforgettable experience just to be a part of such an enormous undertaking and such an incredibly generous gesture for a deserving family.”
Chandler added, “The AudioTile product that we feature on the show is part of our new pArtScience product line that blends art and science together. AudioTile absorbs echoes and other unwanted sound reflections, which is key to producing high-quality, accurate sound. AudioTile is a designer’s dream as well, because it is available in the widest variety of custom patterns on the market.”
