I have a very small room, and I’m going to build my own floor to ceiling corner bass traps.
Would I be better building a frame, filling it with 2″ high density rockwool and straddling the corner, leaving an air gap, or should I fill the corner with triangular cuts of high density Rockwool?
Would be grateful for opinions please

Hi Dave, Neither is a good tactic to use. You must step back a bit and develop a strategy to tackle your room pressure issues. You are using tactics that you read about as a sonic strategy. Lets look at the frequency/amplitude and locations of the issues in your room before we use a tactic that may or may not work for your particular room. Fill out the information in this link. Let look at the problems first before we going assigning solutions that may or may not work. Let me give you an example. If you build the corner traps as you specified, they may not go low enough or absorb at high enough rates to manage your issues. You will spend all that time and money building, place them in the corners and they won’t get the frequencies you want and need in your room. Lets take a look at your room first: http://www.acousticfields.com/…..-analysis/

I just purchased you DIY sets. The bass traps made of MDF, can they be painted or covered in something when I am finished? Does that change the traps ability to absorb the low frequencies?
