Don't know of any local brands, since I live on the other side of the planet. Might be easier to make your own, using 6 inches of rigid insulation (rockwool or fiberglass) in a wood frame, covered with breathable cloth (burlap works great). Place them stradling as many corners in your room as possible, so you have a triangular air gap behind the panel.thanks sdurani... moving the subs made a lot of difference. can you suggest any brands for the bass traps? how should be my approach?
There are a few ways to reduce boominess:
- Move the Millenia sub to the midpoint of your room width, which will cut down the biggest room resonance (standing wave).
- Absorb some of the excess bass by using bass traps in as many corners of the room as possible.
- IF you are sitting at a wall, then move your seating away (bass is boomiest at boundries).
What is the benefit of placing the subwoofer at that location?sdurani - we usually place the CS in the middle below the screen or above to get the effect of characters speaking and place the SUb on the side on the floor.
Placing a subwoofer at the midpoint of room width can cancel the room's first width mode (standing wave, room resonance, whatever you prefer to call it), resulting in smoother bass response across the entire seating area. The smoother the response (fewer peaks & dips), the less boomy the bass will sound.Are you suggesting that the sub has to be placed in the middle for avoiding atleast some problems?
