Default Cylindrical Bass Traps

I have made some cylindrical bass traps to go along with my hanging bass panels (prior thread).

I put thick plastic along 1/2 of the periphery to reflect some HF, but I am still figuring out the proper angle to turn them for best imaging.

While I have a lof of absorption in my room now, bass is still very strong, it just is tighter with more focus. I'm happy with the results.

What do you think?

Bass trap is good. Too bad it's bee neglected by too many audiophiles.

By the way, cat owners may want to opt for different shape.

Curious, did you take measurements of the room before and after? If so, what was the difference?

I made a couple of 17" traps and they do work well. But to be effective ones needs quite a few. So I am planning to build more. The problem is to find enough space in my living room to put them.

I think they look fine, and personally I like the look of circular ones. Think you guys are lucky over there...I checked out prices on the rigid circular F/glass in order to make some. You don't wanna know how expensive it is, TOTALLY impractical to buy for this purpose.

Back to the drawing board.

I second the motion for before and after measurements!!
