Bookshelves BassTraps





Materials: Kilby, ecocompatible acoustic panels, wire

Description: Using a pair of Kilby bookshelves I’ve put a sheet of acoustic cellulose and fixed it at the bottom with crossed wire, stapled on the bookshelf itself.

A few centimeters from the front side I stapled another grid of wire as sustain for another sheet of cellulose. A final grid of wire fixes everything.

Next step: some fabric to cover it all…

    Why? What is the purpose of this hack?

  2. Looks feasible, but I’m a bit concerned about the wires picking up vibrations from the floor and/or air and emitting sound.

    Cool idea and very nice looking. But it’s not going to trap bass. It will suck out hight frequencies; for bass you need a lot of thick material. Bass waves are very large (8-20 feet) and need very thick open cell foam (2-5 feet minimum) for treatment. That’s why your couch and bed are your best basstraps. The thicker the foam the longer (lower) wavelength it can trap (convert to heat). Fill that bookshelf cometely and youll be in much better shape.

    Great hack!
    Do you have any idea in which frequency this bass trap is effective?
