How do Bass Traps Work?
Bass Traps are acoustic absorbers or sound baffles, which have the ability to capture low frequency sound. Bass traps are used to provide low frequency sound absorption in rectangular rooms.
​Bass traps provide a means to control room reverberations at low frequencies, a part of the audible bandwidth especially troublesome, when high quality audio is required in small to mid size rooms. Bass traps like all acoustically absorptive materials, function by turning sound energy in a room's air volume, into minute amounts of heat through friction. 

Where Should They be Used?
Bass traps are particularly useful in the acoustic treatment of
venues built to provide a high quality listening environment such as:
✪ Recording studios: Live rooms & control rooms

✪ Post production mastering suites
✪ Churches
✪ Home cinemas 
✪ Clubs
✪ Musical performamce venues
✪ Pubs / bars


Seeing is Believing
Ok, we totally believe "you've gotta have faith" but the below acoustic simulation "gives your faith wings".   This illustration perfectly shows the need for bass traps.

Needless to say, the value of placing bass traps in a room is very obvious given the result of the simulation.

FAQ

Q. Can I use bass traps to soundproof my room from outside noise?

A. No, bass traps are designed to enhance the clarity of the sound within a room. Bass traps will not soundproof your room from disturbing sounds but have no fear, all is not lost - there are solutions for noise problems such as outside sound. It would be best if you make contact with one of our consultants, fully explain your situation and we'll be glad to assist.

 

Q. Will bass traps suck all the bass out of the room?

A. No, definitively not! In fact bass traps serve to accentuate the bass and bring greater sound clarity into the room. A room that has not been bass trapped is often described as having a boomy or muddy sound. Bass traps will provide a clearly articulated low end in the sound, which is highly desirable in any critical listening environment.

 

Q. Do I need wall panels and bass traps?

A. Well, it all depends on what the room is being used for but bear in mind that wall panels are designed to offer sound absorption primarily in the mid to high frequency range but bass traps are designed to speciffically target low frequencies. Wall panels and bass traps do not do the same job. Give us a call to discuss your project and we'll make sure you are on the right track.

 

Q. How are they installed?

A. We provide a wall bracket which makes them super easy to install. Fix the bracket to the wall and then simply hang the bass trap. Now stand back and enjoy your handy work.
