That's exciting F1--could you post some pics of your "treated" room for us?
Thanks,
Phil

HOT DOG F1!

Did you build all these traps since you started with the corner traps at the beginning of this article?

No just the 4 corner traps. I built the others previously.

Re: Bass traps or EQ

I am building 88" 24x17 corner traps. I was wondering if you have any tips on stretching the fabric. I built frames last night and will order some 703 and GOM over weekend.

Re: Bass traps or EQ

Hi crg,I bet those large traps will work great.
As far as tips , I just started on one side and secured the fabric the full length of the frame with an electric staple gun.I then pulled it as tightly as possible to the one side then stapled it.Then the top then the bottom.Im not sure about the GOM but the fabric I used was very strecthy so it was easy to get tight so that there were not any wrinkles.

Good luck and when you get them done be sure to post some pictures.
