Rockwool density for bass traps

(1/9) > >>

Bankies:
What density rock-wool would work best for bass traps?

80kg/m3 or 100kg/m3 or more

Should I just go with the basic rule of thumb that the more dense it is...the better it will absorb low frequencies.

Abu:
Not so much density as air resistivity (although there is a corrolation). Also your intended application has an affect.

Thanks Abu

You'd be surprised how many people who consult in commercial acoustics refer to material density as an acoustic parameter. It's about moving product primarily, performance second.

Hi Timberland, that I did not realize as until I read the website Abu sent me. I am now well informed and have my answer I was looking for. Thanks
