In the world of room acoustics, if there is reinforced sound in any form (e.g. recording studio) one of the trickier elements of the acoustical design is to figure out how to tame the low end, where sound waves can reach upwards of 15ft, 20ft even 30ft in length or more, depending on the source. Trapping bass wave sound energy is vital to the noise-sensitive room’s acoustical design since it absorbs and diminishes low frequency phenomena, and unwarranted room modes, leaving you with a cleaner, better sounding room. Different rooms will comprise different dominant tones. Even though typical sound-absorptive panels minimize reflections and absorb the mid and high frequencies, controlling bass waves takes on a much heftier design methodology. Generally speaking, among other parameters, the thicker and denser the porous material is the more low frequency sound energy the material absorbs.
TECHLITE Corner Bass Traps from our Infrasonic Series are a perfect solution to absorb and diminish low frequency energy whilst maintaining a unique architectural feature for the space, whether treating recording studios, control rooms, music rooms or live performance venues. The unique trihedral geometry provides exceptional acoustical performance, maximizes installation and design versatility and sparks an immediate visual interest.
Available in our standard 12” x 12” x 24” or 48” tall traps, we have the capability to fabricate custom thicknesses and sizes, suited to your particular room’s aural signature. TECHLITE’S Bass Traps can easily be installed via construction adhesive, hanging/mounting z-clips, and corner wall mounts. Acoustically, our Bass Traps are lab-tested in accredited acoustical laboratories. The Planar and Pulse Bass Traps offer an Apparent NRC of 1.60 and 1.10, respectively. And since fiberglass has been declared a lung, eye, skin, and throat irritant, TECHLITE’S 100% natural melamine foam Bass Traps offer a much safer alternative to traditional fiberglass and fibrous fillers.
