    Im going the DIY route for acoustic room treatment and I want to start with bass traps.

    I have the budget but im curious which, if any, of these bass trap methods have significantly better low end benefits than the other.

    Bass trap styles:

    1. (15" + 8' tall) square superchunk
    2. (15"x15"x21" + 8' tall) triangle soffit bass trap
    3. (6" thick + 8' tall) panel placed 45 degrees on the corner with an airgap.
    What I see in most recording studios and DIY projects is triangle corner traps but I've never seen any reasons to this. I always assumed it was a lot cheaper. I dont want to spend more on a trap that makes a very small difference if at all.

    Thanks for any advice or insight on this topic I am obviously a newbie at this and I appreciate the help. (y)

    If needed:
    11'x11x'8' room.
    Using Roxul Safe n Sound.
    Not for mixing or anything too serious just a listening room.
    5" Jbl Lsr 305
