Designed to provide all-important bass frequency control.
The Primacoustic Max Trap is a corner mount audio conditioner designed specifically for use in corners to provide all-important bass frequency control. Also reduces mid and high frequency reflections. Wall and ceiling planes tend to reflect and guide bass energy into corners. That's why acoustic engineers almost always place bass traps in corner joints where walls intersect.
Working like a 3-way speaker in reverse, the Max Trap employs 3 acoustic principles in 1 device: High frequencies are absorbed with a fabric covered 3" thick high-density fiberglass panel. Behind the panel is a 16" deep open air space to reduce low-mid and bass frequencies. Deep bass down to 65Hz is absorbed by a heavy, dead mass in the form of a diaphragmatic membrane. Powerful bass frequencies set the membrane into motion, converting sound energy into heat.
With Max Traps mounted in your room, you will immediately enjoy tighter, more accurate bass, reduced flutter echo, and help eliminate troublesome standing waves that cause peaks and nulls. The listening sweet spot will enlarge and your recordings will better translate as you play them back in different rooms and audio playback systems.
Shipped flat in kit form to save freight, the Max Trap features an easy-to-assemble black laminated wood frame. Assembly and installation will typically take less than 30 minutes per unit using regular household tools. For those with artistic flare, a second fabric covering may be added without affecting the Max Trap's performance.

Comments about Primacoustic Broadway Max Trap 3-way Broadband Absorber and Bass Trap 24X48 corner mount:
I am a full-time, professional voice-over artist. This Primacoustic MaxTrap was installed in the rear 90 degree corner of my new voice-over booth to help remove or reduce "chest-hump" frequencies. With having both a 3" cloth-covered fiberglass panel and a "limp-mass" absorber built-in to the unit, it functions well as both a broadband absorber and bass trap. It really looks great in the booth, and was easy to assemble and hang. The only "Cons" I found was that there were a few chips out of the black melamine on one of the end-pieces, which seemed to be caused by sliding around during shipment, even though it was tightly strapped and padded. I was able to move this end piece to the bottom where the chips were not visible. Also, the Primacoustic company needs to update their assembly instructions to show that the end-pieces now being shipped have ALL the holes drilled in them, and are not the same as the ones shown in the drawings, which illustrate hole placements for two different end pieces. I think this is so they can use "one" drilling template at the factory for both ends and then during assembly, you only place screws into the holes that are needed to assemble the ends.
