GIK Acoustics Monster Bass Trap with FlexRange Technology (How to?)

Member for

Hi Folks. Does anyone know what materials they are using to build these panels and how they are constructed? To me it looks like they are using some kind of vinyl material for the membrane. I would order from them and do my whole studio space, but I'm located in Canada and the currency exchange on top of shipping and duty fees will really kill the wallet for no good reason. Id rather just try and DIY my own and get similar results. Obviously they won't be as good at the GIK stuff because they clearly know what they're doing.

The plywood is a construction piece to hold the frame together and alow the user a way to install the panel via french cleat or direct to the wall or better to use a minimum 3:1 ratio standoff to not only support the panel but to increase the frequency range the panel works at.


The mlv (mass loaded vinyl) is theoretically responsible for low frequency attenuation....if it works is a guess at this point.

So technically I don't have to add the plywood because it doesn't make much of a difference if I use fabric to hold it together?
