Frequently Asked Questions View All FAQs

Bass Traps are an acoustical treatment that reduces sound issues in the corners of rooms where walls meet, and sound is captured. They are specifically designed to address low frequency standing wave issues, which can create unpleasant or distorted sounds. (Standing waves are defined as the interference of two identical waves, traveling in opposite directions).

By installing Bass Traps, standing waves are reduced, and excessive room reverberation is also reduced. Bass traps are mostly commonly used in recording studios, home theaters, podcast studios, and rooms where loud music and low-end bass sounds exist.

  • For 4 traps: mount them high in your room corners, where the wall meets the ceiling.
  • For 8 traps: mount them floor to ceiling, in your corners.

If your issue still persists, additional traps can be added where the ceiling meets the wall horizontally opposite the bass source, until you achieve your desired results.

Yes, it is!  Our high density (6 PCF) Johns Manville Acoustic Fiberglass board provides superior sound absorption when compared to other materials. For our 1″ and 2″ thick panels, the performance of our fiberglass is better than same thickness of foam, Mineral wool, or Owens Corning 703.  Also, our core material is quite rigid, so a wooden frame is not required.

No, our panels are manufactured using a frameless design. We design our panels to be frameless for the following benefits:

  1. Our frameless panels are lighter weight, which makes our panels easier to handle, ship and install.
  2. Our frameless panels absorb sound on the edges too, giving more absorption area per panel. Wooden framed panels do not.
  3. Our panels are eco-friendly. No trees are consumed in the production of our panels.
  4. Our denser fiberglass core offers the ultimate amount of sound absorption per inch.
  5. Our panels, when mounted with “stand-off”, furring strip, or suspended method, provide additional absorption from the back side of the panel. Wood backed panels do not.

Our products are safe and effective and have been tested by an independent lab. All our panels and clouds carry a Class A fire rating which is the highest rating possible under the ASTM E84, a test used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials.

We include mounting hardware (impaling clips) with all acoustic panel purchases. For impaling clip installation, adhesive is required as explained in our installation instructions and is available separately.

Our acoustic panel kits ship with angled impaling clips. Adhesive is not required for this mounting option.

Hardware for attaching impaling clips to your wall is not included. Drywall anchors and screws (or other hardware as appropriate) to mount the impaling clip to the wall are to be sourced from a local hardware store based on your particular wall type and situation.  Please note that impaling clips are for use on wall surfaces only and are not to be used for ceiling direct-mount applications or for any surface that is beyond perpendicular to the floor.

Optional Rotofast Snap-on anchors do not require adhesive and are available as an alternative installation option at product selection.

  1. Product performs well for small form design which is my room limitations issue not Acoustics Americas. To solve this problem I would have to use larger traps which again were not practical in my room. Happy with results.

  2. I’m sure they’re fine quality, just the wrong size.

  3. Can’t believe what a difference they have made in my space. Thank you!

  4. The Bass Traps work as expected and compete in the same league as other manufacturers. Pricing is very competitive.
