Well everyone, I got both of my 8ft superchunk bass traps finished tonight on the rear wall. Took a few pictures, hope to post them soon. I put my Fleetwood Mac Rumors CD in and I swear the bass does sound tighter, better, killer, awesome, etc... I plan to do a graph with these added and then another graph once I get my 1st reflection points done. I also plan to do something in the rear corners for broadband bass trapping as well. Since I have to make the wife happy, I'm planning on some creative ways to include bass traps and keep her happy.

Congratulations on getting the traps finished. Looking forward to the pics.

I wouldn't bother doing another graph after treating the first reflection points -- while the treatments are likely to make a difference, it's not a difference which will really show up on an FR graph.

There is no substitute for a group of acoustically insignificant assistants (aka kids) running in and out with the treatments while your eyes are closed.

If you look at Royce's before/after combined graph a few posts ago, he actually saw some decent improvement with just 4 4" straddled bass traps in the corners and only 2 side first reflection points. Also, his graph is not plotted in 1hz increments like the Real Traps CD, so many peaks and dips won't even show up and will be missed.

graphs graphs and more graphs, that is the question.
