Acoustic Sciences Corporation (ASC) provides acoustical products for ultra-high-performance, high-fidelity recording and audio rooms, auditoriums, churches, and a multitude of other venues including home listening rooms. Tireless research and experimentation with sound led ACS founder Art Noxon to essentially create the Room Acoustics Industry with the development of a patented sealed cylinder as a device for absorbing excess low-frequency sound energy, and has become an iconic fixture in high-end audio. The cylindrical columns seen frequently in the corners of music venues are referred to as Tube Traps. An ASC Tube Trap is unquestionably one of the most effective acoustical treatments available to the audiophile.
No element has as much impact on the performance of an audio system than the room in which it is installed. In an “untreated” room, listeners find themselves raising the volume in an attempt to attain more clarity. A “trapped” room allows one to listen at a lower volume level while gaining in dynamic impact. With the room effectively removed from the equation, the sense of listening in the recorded space is greatly enhanced by eliminating the negative effects of standing sound waves and low-frequency reflections in the room. Simple in design, relatively simple in execution and simply indispensable for improving the acoustics of your listening room, ASC’s Tube Traps, installed by Overture, will have a profound, positive effect on your enjoyment of your fine recordings.
