236 - Cheap basstraps        

From: admin
Email: here
Date: 15-May-02


if you have a larger studio with bare walls you can break up sound alot and soak up bass and break up low standinhg waves with this: - Get say 4 cheap single futons from Ikea, roll each one up tightly and lash it tight with twine of some type, so each futon is like a big sausage roll - now fix some hooks to the wall in two or 3 points verticaly and lash the futon rolls verticaly to the wall's so they reach up just above head hight and if there is 4 walls, the try them one on each wall 4 or 5 ft from each corner at the opposite end from the speakers (you will have your back to them)... if you want more get another 4 and add them to the other 2 corners in fron of where you sit facing the speakers so there is two futon rolls 'guarding' each corner... it's ok to break up waves in larger rooms cos it will take up some space intruding into the room some 1ft, for smaller rooms, mebbe put one in eachg corner and also try one on the wall flat nalied up - futons are made of layered densly-packed cotton and are very dense & absorbant and big for the money compared to acoustic tiles.... the depth of the futon rolls soaks up low waves ok.. not perfect but cheap. - just ading one flat futon to a room wall makes a huge difference if the room is even a little reverberant.
