Well a few weeks back I won this bass trap on this forum and now that I have used it for awhile I will tell you what I think. First the pillar here, http://www.gikacoustics.com/gik_elite_pillar.html is built well and blends into the room seamlessley and if I don't tell people what it is no one really even notices that it is there. It's hardwood trim and fabric cover is easy to look at and easy to intergrate into the room due to being lightwieght and easy to place.I experimented by putting the trap in a certain spot and then seeing what my sms could tell me. At first it really didn't seem to change my graph at all and it was hard for me to tell if there was any difference at all. It might be because my room is small only 14'x13'x7'.5'' and one wall is half open to another room that doesn't help but I kept on trying different spots each day and it was about at the tenth position that I finally heard the difference. I placed it in the corner left of the listening position and because my seating is close to the wall, I know not the best place for seats, I always had a problem with eccentuated low freq's. At first it seemed fairly minor but as time wen't on and I watched a few more movies I noticed that the bass had been tamed and was not overwhelming like it was before, especially in those movies like U-571 and Wotw. It sounded cleaner and more distinct then before. It still didn't seem to show up on my sms but that could be because of where the mike was placed or limitations of the sms, I don't know but I could hear the difference and that was all that counted to me.I am thinking of either buying another or building one to place in the opposite corner as I think it will help even more but we shall see what happens. All in all I am happy with the trap and certainly the price was right :bigsmile: so I want to thank the shack for haveing the contest and for being such a great forum in the pursuit of HT nirvana. God bless and Happy new year everyone.
