Location of Bass Traps It is commonly known that bass traps should be located at the corners of rooms. The reason why is that soundwaves have the maximum velocity at the corners of rooms, therefore bass traps should be placed in the corners, as displayed in figure 1, in order to absorb the most sound energy possible.

Do I need bass traps in every corner?

It is important to note that it is not necessary to have floor-to-ceiling bass traps along the corners, you may only place two in each corner or decide to only treat two corners, in which case the two closest to the speakers should be treated.

Each operating AVAA will have the same effect as a hole in the wall much larger than the dimensions of the AVAA (that is 0.2 m2).

Which is better bass trap or panel bass trap?

Panel bass traps use the other method of low-end absorption, by leaving an open “air-gap” between the panel and the wall. With this strategy, you can cover more surface area, using less material. And while each one has its advantages, the truth is… either works fine.
