Acoustic Terms and Definitions: Bass Traps

Bass Traps are sound energy absorbers which are designed to reduce low frequency sound energy. The purpose of that is to achieve a flatter low frequency room response by reducing low frequency sound resonances in rooms.

Bass traps are commonly used in recording studios, mastering rooms, home theatres and other rooms built to provide a critical listening environment.
