I will take a few pics for you this evening.
I would love to make my own corner bass traps. Any recommendations?

Here are a few pics of my room. The front diffusers are made of a ridged foam like product, by a company that is no longer in business.

The corner traps are “Soffit Traps” from GIK, which is their most effective bass trap. The wood diffusers on the side walls are the Q7d from GIK. I made most all of the absorption panels on the side and rear walls because I wanted custom sizes. Then ceiling traps are from GIK and the plastic diffusers were bought on B&H Photo, can’t remember the name of them right now.

Thanks. And as you can see this is my dedicated audio room. It’s a small room but it’s still the best audio room in my home, the living room just doesn’t work for audio.
