Good question....I'd like to hear some thoughts on this as well.I got a pack of OC703 and ready to do the corner traps like Chas. Now I'm a bit hesistant to leave the OC703 exposed. I know the cloth frame will cover it up after the OC703 is placed in the corner.
But I wonder will the fiberglass fragments easily get loose and be all over the room?
What about this???? :yes:Nice looking traps.
Anyone have a plan for traps that, that can be moved?
I am not sure my wife will go for them being permanent to the wall.
Though I'm happy with the way my traps turned out...if I had to do it over again I would probably just buy and stack some Tri-traps from GIK.Just to add a note, right now, we're offering a 10% off coupon on Tri Traps and Pillar Traps. This will be good for probably 2-3 weeks.
Those look great! I have been plannng on doing the same myself but with the room I am stuck with for my HT due to wifey, I am limited to what I can do...where my subs and fronts speakers are there is a window to one of the side which woul dlimit the size of the bass trap...any suggestions? Could I make them alot narrower and add some treatment to the front wall?The traps were designed around my limited woodworking skills. It's basically a stack of 703 wedges with a cloth covered "grill". I started with a triangular wood base and stacked wedges half way up the wall:
At the halfway point a center support was cut from 2 X 2's. The sides were cut a half inch longer than the fiberglass wedges, and cut at a 45 degree angle to match the face of the wedges:
The stack was continued to the ceiling where I attached another set of 2 X 2's with 45-degree face cuts. Industrial stength velcro was attached to the faces of the 2 X 2's to attach the "grills":
The grills were made from 8-foot fir strips with cross braces top, bottom, and center:
Braced behind with t-braces and L-braces:
The "grills" were sprayed flat black and then covered with speaker cloth from Joanne's Fabrics (not too expensive with a 50% off coupon). The velcro was stapled to the back of the grills and they were placed against the 2 X 2's in the corner that had been faced with velcro. That industrial strength stuff is quite strong!
You should start a new thread for your room and post your pictures there...you will probably get some good feedback from regulars like bpape with suggestions on treatments.Nope, I live in a small town in southern Illinois...but when I get to go shop i n the next large town I will check it out but I have found a few places on the web! You did great work....now I got to fight my room from hell!
