About Your Noise
The acoustics within your church interior play a key role in building and sustaining a satisfied congregation. From the spoken word to contemporary band music, from choirs and organ music, the need to generate clarity to speech and harmonies to music plays no greater role than it does in a house of worship. Your ability to control the acoustics within your space, and deliver this valuable sound quality, rests in the hands of NetWell and our church interior soundproofing solutions. We welcome your call and look forward to delivering the sound values you are seeking.
Clarity to The Spoken Word
Speech patterns that are blurred due to poor room acoustics can be difficult to understand. As the background noise builds due to the echoes within your space, the clarity of the spoken word is compromised. As the congregation strains to hear, they are left wondering aloud what can be done to improve the sound values within the room. The answer is a set of acoustic sound panels that can be placed around the room’s perimeter to capture and convert the unwelcome echoes from the room. As a result, the background noise collapses, as greater clarity to original sound is restored. The key to the success of the treatment is to ensure that you are not undertreating the space. NetWell offers a free tool called a Room Analysis that will help calculate your coverage amounts and quote your sound panel project. See the link at the bottom of this page.
Featured Sound Panel Option
Fabric Panels are cloth wrapped acoustic sound panels that will add beauty and elegance to church, while simultaneously capturing the unwelcome echoes that are causing your problem. By placing a set of these panels within your sanctuary, your fellowship hall, your gymnasium, classroom, narthex or meeting rooms, the acoustics within each of these rooms will become premium quality. These sound panels absorb the noise that is causing your sound problems, and leave instead a room filled with premium sound quality. The Fabric Panels are the top-selling product in America. Call our help desk at 1-800-638-9355 for more information.See Fabric Panel
Alternative Product Options
As an alternative to the standard wall panel, some clients opt to “float” the same sound panel system from their ceiling, leaving their walls untouched. The same product, mounted in a different way in your space, will produce the same intended sound values by capturing and converting the echoes from your room. Ceiling Clouds are super popular for fellowship halls and sanctuaries, producing a visually stunning presentation to the room, with the walls left as they are. In addition, another popular version of this sound panel is to have us digitally print graphics, logos, scripture, emblems, photography and artwork onto the face of your sound panel system. Ideal for building religious-themed murals in your space that will double as acoustic sound boards. These are called PicturePanels.

Most Commonly Asked Questions
What Is the Impact on Poor Sanctuary Sound and Church Attendance?
If the church is an echo chamber, it will hinder the worship experience for its congregation. This is especially true for music services — whether the church uses a choir, organ or more contemporary instruments. The sound waves will bounce off of the hard, reflective surfaces within the space and blur sound signals. As the noise levels increase, churchgoers will have a difficult time hearing the service, and ultimately move to another church that provides a more enjoyable worship environment. Without investing in a sound panel treatment, it will be tough to retain your parish.
How Soundproofing a Church Will Grow and Protect Its Membership
By investing in a sound panel treatment like NetWell’s Fabric Panels, you’ll be able to enhance your parish’s experience. Our products are designed to make your space more user-friendly by effectively capturing and converting the echoes within it. After absorbing the excess noise, your parishioners will be able to hear the original sound coming from the musician or speaker — rather than the sound waves reverberating off the walls and ceiling. This will ensure an enjoyable worship environment for your congregation, and in time, grow your membership.
Why Seniors Need Protection From the Noise in a Church
Many seniors are hard of hearing. Because of this, they need as much sound clarity as possible. Churches tend to have high ceilings and reflective surfaces that only increase the noise levels within a space. As the echoes bounce around the room, it becomes harder to hear the original sound. This proves even more true for seniors who rely on crystal clear acoustics. By soundproofing a church, parishioners will have a more enjoyable experience overall.
How Clarity for Spoken Word Can Be Compromised by Poor Room Acoustics
Churches are typically designed with reflective surfaces that look beautiful, but hinder noise control. Without acoustic soundproofing, the background noise in your church will reflect off of these surfaces and muddle the speaker’s voice. The spiked noise levels will only increase, ultimately creating a poor worship environment. That’s why it’s important to invest in acoustic panels: the noise absorption will restore the original sound and provide clarity for the speaker.
The Impact That Contemporary Music Services Have on Church Membership
Whether you use bass guitars, drums or tambourines, music is one of the most important aspects of a contemporary service. However, since there are so many instruments involved, the noise can reverberate around the room and disrupt the sound quality. Because churchgoers choose a contemporary service as a less traditional way to worship, modern music is high on their priority list. If the music is muddled, though, they may decide to go somewhere else. The only way you can retain these parishioners is to invest in sound panels for churches.
How Fabric Wall Panels Will Improve the Worship Experience
There is nothing worse for a church member than being unable to discern what is being said in their sanctuary. As members strain to hear the speaker, they will grow weary of the battle, and eventually join another house of worship with better acoustics. Without a sound panel treatment in the sanctuary, acoustic values will spike to excessive levels, and blur and distort sound signals. Once a Fabric Panel system is set in place, the echoes will collapse as greater clarity for original sound is restored. As a result, the worship center will produce premium sound quality for its congregation, and in turn, protect the level of membership, and secure the future growth and viability of the church.
How Many Sound Panels Does Your Church Need and Where Should You Place Them?
When it comes to sound panels for churches, the key to success lies in the coverage amounts rather than the location. The goal is to avoid undertreating the room, so you effectively capture and convert the echoes. NetWell’s Fabric Panels can be placed as you wish around the perimeter walls or ceiling of your room. Clips will be shipped with your order to help you secure the panels to your surfaces. You can also “float” them from the ceiling as Ceiling Clouds. We always recommend placing the panels higher on the walls for durability purposes. For questions related to soundproofing your church, call our help desk at 1-800-638-9355.
Why Do Thicker Sound Panels for Churches Work Better?
Thicker sound panels absorb greater percentages of low frequency sound waves. If your church is a contemporary service with musical instruments that include bass guitars and drums, your low frequency sounds will require 2” thick Fabric Panels over 1” thick panels. However, if your services are more traditional with a choir and organ, the frequencies of these sound sources can be controlled with 1” thick sound panels. Again, the key to success for the soundproofing treatment lies in getting your coverage amounts correct, and then evenly distributing them around the room’s perimeter. Panel thickness only helps if there are musical instruments in the room stemming from contemporary services.
What Are the Benefits in Using NetWell’s Sound Panels in Your House of Worship?
The biggest benefit to soundproofing your church is that you’ll protect your members from poor room acoustics. By doing so, you’ll enhance the worship experience in the sanctuary, the fellowship in multipurpose rooms, and the education in classroom settings. The net advantage to soundproofing your church is that you’ll build and protect your membership by delivering a more functional space with more acoustic friendly environments, especially for seniors. Ignoring the value of your sound quality will compromise this experience, and drive your members away from your church to other worship spaces who have invested in acoustic panels.
