Active bass traps
« on: April 08, 2019, 08:34:51 PM »
I stumbled across this inadvertently via an acoustic treatment thread in another audio forum I frequent.

https://www.psiaudio.swiss/avaa-c20-active-bass-trap/

Designed for recording studios but used in home environments as well, the concept and application seems intriguing.
Watch the videos in the link as well.

Here is a review https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/psi-audio-avaa-c20

They are 2000 UK pounds each.Does anyone have R75k lying around to import a set and give us an unadulterated first hand review?

That would have saved me a whole lot of manual labour for sure. But sadly very expensive...

For audio only use, one can hook up a subwoofer and with some signal manipulation to do the same. While in a recording studio the mic fed solutions work with all sound, in the home playback environment matters are a bit different. Active absorbers are very cool.
