GoTrap Specifications

GoTrap is a studio gobo designed to control spill between instruments that also acts as a combination broadband absorber and bass trap to help control excessive bass. Sound control is achieved by combining three acoustical principles into a single device:

1. To handle lower mid-range and upper frequencies, a set of 2″ thick absorptive panels are mounted on the front and back. These are made from 6lb per cubic foot (96 kg/m³) high-density encapsulated glass wool for maximum absorption.

2. Between the acoustic panels is a rigid membrane that acts as a sound block to control spill while also naturally resonating at lower frequencies. This helps absorb low frequency bass while providing sufficient mass to contain sound.

3. An 8″ air cavity between the acoustic panels is created by the plywood enclosure. This creates a natural bass trap that serves to further attenuate bass in the troublesome 100Hz region.

The GoTrap enclosure is made from Baltic birch plywood with dovetail joints and a durable natural finish. The GoTrap ships flat to save on freight and final assembly is performed using simple household tools in about 15 minutes from start to finish!
