Giga bass trap
We can produce custom sizes as well.
The properties of our Giga bass trap with double membrane:
Our Giga bass traps with double membrane is made of high-density acoustic imitation of leather material , we use spring double wood membrane on the back of it.
Its stiffness is ensured by the rigid wood construction.
We use 90kg/m3 acoustic wool for the internal sound absorption. It was developed especially for this purpose and it is harmless for the health.
The surface is covered with acoustic velvet which prevents dust emission.
The touch, the look, the texture of the imitation of leather is identical to the real leather.
Giga bass trap cleaning:
Wipe it with slightly wet cloth.
What is it good for and where to place it?
You can get an answer to this question in this article.
Thanks to the combination of wood and leather its sound absorption over 600Hz is marginal while it is significantly more effective in the lower frequencies
Since it destroys the unwanted bass from 30Hz we will hear more detailed and controlled bass while higher frequencies will remain airier and more spacious.
All of our products are continuously measured and tested.
Giga bass trap membrane is an extremely effective bass trap that combines a membrane resonator and a full size and range sound absorbing panel in order to defeat the problematic parts of the low frequencies.
Formation of Giga bass trap membrane
It contains a unique designed spring wooden membrane or a spring leather and wooden membrane outer coating and inside there is high-density acoustic wool of 90kg/m3. It absorbs effectively the frequencies below 200Hz in case of a wooden membrane and the frequencies below 600Hz in case of a leather membrane. Therefore, these bass traps are the most effective in absorbing low frequencies.
The closed airspace behind the membrane fully exploits the quarter wavelength principles in order to further strengthen the absorption of low frequencies in this critical bass region.
With Giga bass trap membrane, the low frequency is absorbed with a stretched membrane which is placed in the full width of the structure, slows down the low frequencies by vibration and finally stops them where the volume of the low frequencies is particularly high. The dimensions of the room amplify or cancel certain frequencies. The Giga bass trap membrane is developed for that purpose as it resonates soundless at low frequencies smoothing out thereby the modular frequencies.
Colours of acoustic membrane
If you order Giga bass trap membrane with double wooden membrane you can choose among 16 different colours of acoustic velvet coating and if you like it with leather membrane you can choose among 6 acoustic imitation of leather colours.
Our acoustic panels are always assembled and ready to use thus you can install it without waiting.
Placing the panels in brief
The optimal position is in the corner where the walls meet and the low frequencies enrich significantly.
In the rooms where there isn’t enough room for the corner unit (corner bass trap) we advise narrower or custom size panels.
By combining with broadband acoustic panels and diffusers we can practically create a perfectly balanced space.
The most ideal use if you put at least 2 pieces on top of each other per corner. If it is not possible you can place it in ear level, the centre of the bass trap should be at ear level in seated position. This way you can control also the secondary reflection point.
If you do not want to drill, it will perfectly operate placed on the ground.
A little science: How Giga bass trap membrane has been developed
Bass problems in the studios
Since the affordable digital and analogue electronics have appeared the recording studios have spread to such an extent that many successful records were made fully at home in home studios. The majority of these rooms were already existing built structures which have never been dedicated to audio recording or listening.
Small rooms have several problems: due to the close walls the loudspeakers and the instruments are exposed to strong reflections which cause serious comb filtering. As most of the rooms are rectangular or square shape the parallel walls may cause significant standing waves and rattling echo.
These reflections cause both the collapse of the listening position and fatigue of the ears. The straightforward solution for these types of middle and high frequency reflections are the broadband absorbing panels such as the popular Broadband acoustic panel.
The handling of bass frequencies is however more challenging which is usually called modal distortion or room mode.
Basically, room modes generated when many low frequency sound waves get together. When several phases unify, they come together and grow stronger thus the bass increases in a certain frequency. The other option is that these sound waves can combine with each other and cancel out each othe decreasing thereby the given frequency thus we feel a higher dip in the lower section of the sound. None of these cases are ideal because the loudspeakers can be too loud or too quiet depending on our position in the room.
If we walk around in an ideally treated room, we should hear a balanced sound with a minimal deviation in the different points of the room.
Use of Giga bass trap membrane
It is easy to handle and it works
By combining Giga bass trap membrane with Broadband acoustic panels, you will realise that the bass will calm down immediately, the rattling echo decreases which helps to eliminate the disturbing standing waves that cause peaks or nulls.
With less reflections and echoes the listener’s room will be quieter thus the work will be more comfortable and enjoyable. With a properly treated and balanced studio the mixing become more precise and more audible when you hear the recorded music in different places such as your car or other acoustic environment.
The use and advantage of corners
It is well known that the low frequencies enrich in the corners where they are multiplied and strengthening each other. That is why the acoustic experts always start the acoustic treatment with the corners. The other major reason is that as the bass multiplies in the corners, thus if you double the number of bass traps the bass traps will function as sound traps.
Giga bass trap membrane FAQ:
Can I mount the Giga bass trap membrane in a corner?
We provide our acoustic panels with pre-drilled holes and you must screw the added hook bolts manually. Then you must put a hook bolt in the hole drilled in the wall then hang it.
How the membrane absorbs the bass?
With a simple vibration which is of course soundless.
That means only that the high-density membrane mounted on the panel starts vibrating when the basses pass through thus it slows them down significantly.
They contain high-density acoustic wool that slows down bass immediately when it passes through according to thermo dynamics rules its acoustic energy is converted into heat.
Do we improve sound absorption by piling two bass traps?
Yes. It not only creates a bigger surface for the high, middle and low frequencies but the increased occurring reflection probably helps to absorb more basses.
If these are called membrane bass traps how they take up high frequencies?
The bass range is the most difficult to control therefore we compromised that in order to absorb significant volume of low frequencies we sacrifice the absorption of higher frequencies. If you still want to have the sounds absorbed in the entire bandwidth you should choose our corner unit bass trap or our simple Giga bass trap.
How can I measure the performance of the bass trap?
You can do it even with a Room Acoustics Software which can be downloaded free of charge.
Measure the room without the Giga bass trap membrane then put the bass trap in the corner and measure it again. The impact and the measurement will speak for themselves.
Do not do the same with an acoustic panel of lower quality or with a foam because you will be very disappointed.
Can I use these bass traps behind the curtain of the home theatre?
Absolutely. The most frequencies pass through the curtain and the Giga bass trap absorbs them completely.
