traps

  1. Home Audio Acoustics
    I'm new to the forum and have just built my first DIY sub. The sub's great but I have a very uneven response curve. So I think bass traps are the next step (BFD on order). I was intending to use 3 inch thick fiberglass across the corners with airspace behind but I see you have totally filled the...

    I will hopefully be building 2 18" Soundsplinter LLT 28" diameter sonotube subs soon. I'd like to make some bass traps/acoustic panels that resemble the subs. How/what do I do to achieve this?:scratchhead::dontknow::huh::scratch:

    I finally got around to finishing my "superchunk" style corner traps:

    I have some Rockwool acoustic panels (4") that I want to use as corner traps. So far I have placed them on the floor at 45deg angle with the top open. Do I need to build a floor to ceilign frame and make sure it's air tight top and bottom? Or maybe there's a specific height the panel should...

    Hiya Everyone, Back in March I got my first HT and learned a whole lot very quickly. I especially learned about acoustics when my sound was not quite what I had expected. Due to financial troubles my plans had to be put on hold, but recently I was finally able to get the rest of my bass traps...

    I was shown and found some info on creating your own absorbers and bass traps using OC 703 rigid fiber. They recommend using 2 layers to get 4". I was wondering if there'd be any loss of effectiveness or gain in effectiveness if I use 13" R-38. Would that extend the absorption to lower...

    Thinking about adding some bass traps to your room? Curious about the effectiveness of the inexpensive bass traps from generic foam vendors? Here are the results I got from using 8 of the corner units in my room. The tan trace is without traps, purple trace is with traps. Units are roughly...

    Most of the comercially available bass traps are fabric covered. Also, most of what I have found as examples of DIY bass traps are also fabric covered fiberglass. In my basement family room / music room / home theater I would like to install some floor to ceiling DIY bass traps in the...

    I sure wish someone would make a nice Bass Trap that wasn't ugly. My home theater is trimmed with a whole lot of woodwork. The ability to choose a bass trap that would match or come closer to matching my particular set up would sure be nice. Black bass traps are OK but something other than that...

    I am seeking advice on the best way to deal with a strong axial mode.My small room makes it neccessary to place my subs in the corners which gives me a nice little shot of room gain but on the downside it also excites a nasty 50hz mode. I am curently using a single band of Parametric EQ to...

    Some basic info first: Room is 4.95m by 3.9m by 2.4m. Floor is laminate ie hard and very reflective, have one carpet on the floor, natural fiber but pretty thin so not doing much for absorption. I have acoustic panels made from rigid fibreglass on the walls, left wall coverage is probably...
  12. REW Forum
    Here's my initial sweep with the main speakers turned off (only the subs active): Is my next step to let REW suggest filters for me and send them to my 1124, or do I need to do something else first? I appear to have a huge peak at my 17Hz tuning frequency. I know that BFD can't do anything...

    Figured this was as good a place as any to share some fun pics of my DIY Wall treatments and corner traps. For those interested in DIY corner traps or wall panels...it's easier than you think and it does work. I am all thumbs but got a little help from my brother and his extensive tool...
