Real Traps MiniTrap 2' x 4 '- Wheat – No Longer Available

The ideal treatment for space conscious acoustic treatment
MFR# MiniTrap 2' x 4'

Product Description

RealTraps MiniTraps are 2 by 4 feet, 3-1/4 inches thick, and weigh 18 pounds. [Metric: 61 x 122 x 8 cm, 8 kg] Despite their small size these are real performers that have exceptional specs, especially at low frequencies. Mini Traps perform far better than anything else in their price range, and better than products that cost a lot more too! No bull!When mounted in corners Mini Traps absorb very well to below 80 Hz, and are still effective (0.30) to as low as 40 Hz. One reason MiniTraps are so much more effective than other treatments is the air gap behind the panels. When mounted on a wall with a spacer, sound gets behind a MiniTrap so its rear surface can also absorb. This air gap increases absorption as much as fifty percent, and also extends absorption to lower frequencies when compared with flat wall mounting. When placed straddling a corner the absorption is even greater, especially at low frequencies. Not only because sound waves can get to the back of the trap, but also because low frequencies tend to focus in corners.

In addition to the 2x4 foot size, MiniTraps are also available in a 2x2 foot model meant for mounting in tri-corners where two walls meet the ceiling or floor, or anywhere else a full size MiniTrap won't fit. [Metric: 61 x 61 x 8 cm, 5 kg]

We also offer both sizes in a High Frequency model that absorbs more at mid and high frequencies. Where standard MiniTraps are intentionally semi-reflective at higher frequencies, the HF type trades slightly less low frequency performance for maximum absorption above 200 Hz. This is useful for reducing echoes and excess ambience, or to treat first reflection points in a listening room.

Although MiniTraps cost more per unit than lesser treatments, they are far more effective so you can use fewer of them. And since the front surface of a MiniTrap is semi-reflective at mid and high frequencies, you can install enough of them to truly solve low frequency problems, but without making the room too dead as happens with foam or plain fiberglass.

All RealTraps products include hardware to mount them on a wall or ceiling. If you intend to mount your MiniTraps on microphone stands, please let us know when ordering and we'll include that hardware instead.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
