There is no such thing as low frequency acoustic foam.It is a middle and high frequency absorbtion tool.Low frequency energy takes a specially designed material.Has anyone used these guys?
Seem to be some reasonably priced bass traps / room treatment panels, almost make me want to dip my toe into room treatments. They seem to sell on Amazon with some decent feedback.
The fact I can nip in on the way home from work and pick up from their factory shop also tempts me. Currently I have zero room treatment just black devore on the walls in the front of my room.
Out of interest - has anybody tried mounting bass traps on the ceiling. I have a room mode height null at around 50Hz that one option to solve is a new processor with Dirac, prefer this to the Anti-Mode option. Or the other option is a tuned Bass Trap for 50Hz. I just wondered how many you would need - don't mind putting one up - but a few might be difficult aesthetically.
Hi - I went with 4 large Bluefrog Soffits mounted on ceiling corners but refrained from mounting bass traps on the ceiling itself.I think to reach 50hz you’re going to need soffits, but you’re talking 300-400mm thick square columns to make a difference. I did get advice from GIK acoustics and soffits can be put along the ceiling corners, horizontally, where ceiling meets wall. Traditionally they are used as columns in the corners, but on the ceiling is possible. I’ve seen the tuned bass traps GIK do. They are not that big and you would need advice. GIK will work with you. You can send in Room Eq Wizard files plus room dimensions and they will work out the best option. Bluefrogaudio.co.uk is also a good company for traps & soffits and will provide advice too

In the end I cured the 50Hz mode by repositioning the Sub and using a processor that has Dirac - sounds pretty good and looking at the graphs seems to have done the job - George
Soudal masticFor those that have installed ceiling panels/traps. What did you use to install them ?
I don't personally use them in the end, but did consider them when buying other products from the same place:For those that have installed ceiling panels/traps. What did you use to install them ?

Ended up using double sided sticky velcro as the panels were fairly light, and i wanted minimal clearance from the ceiling.Did you install panels on the ceiling ? If so, what did you use?
