Bass Traps


Bass Trap acoustic panels for studios and home theatres with cool looks, innovative designs and top performance. A must for all small to medium sized professional and home studios.

These traps reduce "boominess" & solve the two most common studio acoustic problems:

Nulls - places in the room with either no Bass or a significant drop in volume for all or specific Bass frequencies.

Modes – places in the room with bass peaks – these typically occur in the corners of a room and sometimes also in the centre of a room or even at the mixing/listening position.

Once you have solved these two problems listening is more enjoyable, mixing and mastering is much faster and your tracks will sound good in all environments.

Bass Traps should be floor to ceiling in at least the back two corners of your room (prefereably all four corners) and have a space behind them of at least 50-100mm. If they don’t then you will only achieve half or less of the specified bass absorption. This is because Bass Traps are velocity absorbers i.e. they only trap sound (convert sound to heat) when sound travels through them at maximum velocity. If your bass trap is flat against the wall, or worse still hard in the corner, the sound is not moving when it nears the wall and therefore only limited trapping/absorption occurs.


Standard Bass Trap

Polyester acoustic panels for New 
Zealand studios & home theatres
1150x290x50mm white Polyester Corner Bass Trap Panel with black facing cloth on one side - light weight, semi rigid with very smart looks in any environment. Ideally suited to small rooms up to around 3 metres by 5 metres in size.

While it only absorbs a limited amount of very low frequency sound (50-80 Hz) it does a good job on many of the most problematic lower mid and bass frequencies i.e. 100 - 400 Hz because it is placed across corners of a room with a gap of around 150mm behind. This gap has several benefits:
- It allows sound waves to travel through the panel at maximum velocity which results in maximum absorption.
- Bass frequncies bouncing back off the walls are re-absorbed through the rear of the panel.

- The gap does not increase the higher frequencies absoption but does give an extra octave of bass frequencies absorption.
Eight of these are included in our Studio & Home Theatre Acoustics Pack.

Super Bass Trap

Polyester acoustic panels for New 
Zealand studios & home theatres
1150x390x150mm Bass Trap Panel with black facing cloth on side facing room - light weight, semi rigid and with very smart looks in any environment. Ideally suited to small to medium sized rooms up to around 5 metres by 7 metres in size.

This Trap absorbs all bass frequencies superbly right down to 50 Hz due to it's 150mm depth and innovative design with multiple gaps at the rear. However it still has a very compact footprint which makes it ideal for both studios and home theatres.

It has two further advantages over other bass traps - it is freestanding and lightweight so:
- It does not require installation and does not need to be attached to the walls.
- it can also be used as portable Gobo in your studio when recording acoustic instruments such as pianos, guitars, cellos and violins. It is also often used in professional studios to islolate instruments when played in an ensemble.

"The Super Bass traps we purchased from NZ Acoustics for a number of our new project studios have done a superb job of cleaning up the lower mid frequencies we were having a problem with. They look good, are simple to install and the service from Nigel at NZ Acoustics was first rate."
Mark de Jong - Parachute Studios
