The FullTrap is shipped flat in a box to save space and costly freight charges. All of the parts you need to put it together are inside including dowels, screws and mounting hardware. Standard household tools are all you need to build a FullTrap. Most folks find that it takes about 25 minutes to assemble following the simple step by step instructions. If you like, you can download the assembly manual by clicking this link to the FullTrap user guide. Once assembled, the FullTrap employs French cleats as the wall hanging support mechanism. A cleat is mounted on the wall surface and the FullTrap simply hangs in place quietly doing its work.
Because bass frequencies are omni-directional the FullTrap can be placed anywere in a room but near room corners maximize it’s effectivness. The determining factor is mostly a matter of high frequency control as the FullTrap’s front facing 3″ thick acoustic panel is highly effective from 125Hz and up. It is also a matter of available wall space. In some instances when open wall space is not available the MaxTrap provides an effective corner mounted alternative.
FullTraps can also be stacked for greater bass control. The more bass traps you have in your room, the greater the bass absorption. As a rule, small rooms will work well with two bass traps where larger rooms will benefit from four or more, depending on your desired outcome. As always, start by listening to your room by walking around to hear the room modes. Then, try recording in your room and listen to your recording in other spaces to hear how well your mixes translate. If you find that the recordings lack bass, then you probably need to add more bass control.
The FullTrap makes controlling bass problem easy in any room.
