New to TubeTrapping? Place the first pair in your front corners (behind the speakers), the next pair in your rear corners (behind your listening position), and then build the stacks from there!
The best bang-for-your-buck is found in the 13" and 16" diameter models, and we recommend starting with some combination of four TubeTraps to improve your listening experience substantially. We firmly believe this is the best investment you can make in your sound system.
A TubeTrap is a self contained broadband acoustic absorber/diffuser. It works by utilizing a reactive acoustic circuit that is powered by the sound pressure in your room. It works best where the sound pressure is the strongest, which is in the corners and against the walls in your room.
TubeTraps were developed for music playback in smaller rooms, including high end listening rooms, home theaters and recording studios. TubeTraps absorb unwanted bass range reflections and reverberation while diffusing the more desirable treble range reflections. Additionally, TubeTraps are able to be "tuned" to adjust the brightness of your room: chrome button facing into the room provides greater ambience, and chrome button facing the wall provides a more damped sound.
IsoThermal TubeTraps are an improved TubeTrap that provides double absorbing power in the sub-bass range, below 60Hz and enhanced bass absorption up through middle C, or 260Hz. That’s why the IsoThermal TubeTrap has two chrome dots along the rim instead of the traditional one dot: two dots means twice the power!
By eliminating the thermal component of acoustic pressure, The IsoThermal TubeTrap has an effectively 40% larger internal volume below 150 Hz, which doubles its absorbing power while retaining all of the other familiar sonic characteristics of the TubeTrap you know and love.
