The Primacoustic MaxTrap provides a high performance wall-mount bass trap solution for rooms with low frequency standing wave issues. The Primacoustic MaxTrap is a highly effective bass trap that combines a diaphragmatic resonator with a full-size acoustic panel in a sealed enclosure to provide 3-way absorption throughout the full frequency spectrum.
This unique design begins with a 3" thick front-mounted 24" x 48" Broadway panel made from 6lb per cubic foot high-density glass wool fiber. This effectively absorbs frequencies down to 100Hz. Behind the panel, a closed air space takes full advantage of quarter-wavelength principles to further reinforce low frequency absorption in this critical bass region.
But where the MaxTrap truly shines is in its capacity to absorb deep, low bass. The MaxTrap's remarkable low frequency extension is achieved by way of a suspended diaphragm that stretches the full size of the device, capturing bass by vibrating where the low frequencies are most prominent. As room modes combine, they either reinforce certain frequencies or cancel them out. The MaxTrap's limp-mass structure naturally migrates to the most powerful frequencies where it quietly resonates to remove excess bass and subsequent modal frequencies.
Available in black, beige or grey, MaxTraps ships flat and assemble in minutes using standard household tools. Optimum placement is in corners where walls intersect and sound naturally gathers. For rooms where windows and doors are in the way, the wall-mounted Primacoustic FullTrap presents an excellent alternative. When combined with Primacoustic Broadway panels and diffusers, one can turn virtually any room into a well balanced acoustic space.
The Primacoustic MaxTrap, quite simply the best bass trap made today.
The Primacoustic MaxTrap is a combination full range absorber and diaphragmatic resonator designed to control all frequencies right down to the deepest bass.
This is achieved by combining a full-size high density glass wool panel (F) with a closed air space behind (B) created by the wood frame (A) to absorb sound below 100Hz. Lower frequencies pass through the front face and then cause the internal diaphragm (D) to resonate. The greater energy contained in low frequencies causes the limp-mass diaphragm to naturally migrate to the frequencies where room resonance is most prominent, thereby reducing the effect of powerful room modes.
Made from easy to clean black melamine coated wood composite frame (A), the MaxTrap ships flat in kit form to save freight costs and assembles in about fifteen minutes using standard household tools. Once together, the device hangs easily in the corner using supplied French cleats.
