RealTraps' MicroTraps acoustic panels are 2x4 feet and only 1-inch thick, and are built with a dual-layer membrane to enhance their low-frequency absorption. Like the company's original MiniTraps, MicroTraps are made with rigid Fiberglas and metal, so they have a Class-A fire rating and can be installed in public venues.

According to RealTraps co-owner Ethan Winer, “The main problems in most studios and listening rooms are acoustic interference that skews the low-frequency response and excessive ambience that obscures musical detail and causes listener fatigue. Many engineers and audiophiles cover their walls with foam, which just makes the room too dead at high frequencies while doing nothing for the low end. MicroTraps are much more absorbent than foam panels at all frequencies, so they do a superior job overall and with fewer pieces. Their low cost and light weight also make them ideal for larger installations like churches and auditoriums. Best of all, they install easily with one nail or hook—just like a picture—without glue or wall damage.”

MicroTraps come with a MSRP of $99.99. Additional product information can be found at www.realtraps.com.
