    Hello Caesar
    Sorry to dig up this old thread, but I see you were on a bit of a quest for perfect bass and I wondered how you got on?
    Did you go for subs, bass traps, both or something else?
    Thank you for your input

    Hi Infinitely,
    Only bass traps in the corners rights now - no subs yet. Bass traps make a HUGE difference...as long as they are ONLY in the corners so that they don't make your room too dead, one of the best upgrades anyone can make regardless of price

    Very, very interesting.....currently the only 'treatment' I have is heavy kickbags in the corners behind my speakers, my versions of bass traps.
    Did you go with the ASC tube traps?
    I suspect it would be easy to improve on my diy efforts
    Thank you for your help

    I have mostly GIK, but if you can afford- and home situation allows- a combination of ASC for bass trapping with SMT for diffusion would be the ideal option.

    You can run a "quick" experiment by throwing some insulation bales from Home Depot in as many wall / floor corners as you can (return them later). Obviously, ASC or GIK/ real traps products would kill the insulation bales, but you will get a sense of what bass traps can do for you. Just make sure you get a whole bunch of them.
