Default Free: acoustic room treatment panels (West Yorkshire, UK)

About 15 years ago I made a set of acoustic room treatment panels, and some bass traps; with useful guidance from Ethan Winer of RealTraps.

They've not been used since a house move a few years ago, and reluctantly I've accepted I'm not going to get chance again - so I'm offering them to anyone that would like to take them.

I recorded the original build here, with plenty of photos: Making Acoustic Panels

Each of the flat panels is approx 61cm wide by 121cm tall, and 8cm deep. There are 4 that were used on the ceiling, and 6 more that have legs (for use freestanding). There are also a few blocks of the denser material for corner bass traps.

From tests when they were installed they did make quite a difference to reflections and room modes (both subjectively and from a number of measurements).

They've been in (dry) storage for a few years (see attached photo) so they aren't cosmetically perfect, but they'll still work (and it would only be a few hour's work with a staple gun to re-cover them in new fabric should you want.

You'd probably get all the flat panels in a large estate car, but it'd likely require a couple of trips to get the bass traps too. Free to collect from north of Leeds - just send me a PM if you're interested.

Hi Chris,

Esprit collected the framed acoustic panels, but I have a few of the corner bass traps left.

They're basically triangular wedges of dense rock wool, wrapped in wadding. Two stacked together will fill a corner up to the ceiling. You'd be very welcome to have them if you want.

Found an old image from back when I made them; you can see some of the bass traps in the corners:

One last bump on this: I've checked the remaining panels (images below). There are 5 bass traps left; all are approx 1.1m tall, with three being slightly wider and two slightly thinner.

Still available for free if anyone wants them.
