For over 25 years, ASC has been the leader in Modular, Dynamically Adjustable Acoustics. From our humble beginnings in 1984, with the intoduction of the first commercially manufactured Bass Trap - the legendary TubeTrap - our products have been embraced by the music industry.

Along with manufacturing and sales of acoustic products, ASC offers a no-charge initial consultation to help customers select and use our products effectively. A more in-depth design service complete with an acoustical engineering report is also available for a nominal fee. The fee is later applied to your purchase. Just fax, mail or attach to an email a dimensioned sketch, blueprints or photos of the room /space you are planning to treat and we will propose a design using ASC products. We can also start with a minimal acoustic treatment, and design an upgrade path for you to work up to, as time and budget allows.

Custom Studios

ASC is able to custom design and manufacture products to suit your specific acoustic requirements. We'll work with your architect or designer to come up with the right solution that looks great AND does what its supposed to do. The customization can range from a slight modification of existing ASC products to a start-from-scratch innovation.

Technologies Used

• TubeTrap - Bass Traps

Unlike any other bass trap, the physics behind the TubeTrap are based on a capacitive-resistive circuit. The acoustic capacitor (C) is the air chamber inside. The bigger it is, the more efficient the TubeTrap is at low frequencies. The acoustic resistance (R) is DC impedance matched to the radiation (LC) impedance of a freely radiating soundwave. Because of this design feature, the TubeTrap is more than 100% efficient.  Another unique feature is the adjustable diffusion grid built into the TubeTrap. The specular diffusion panel that covers half of the TubeTrap is an acoustic choke (L) which is sized, ported and mass loaded to backscatter the treble range.

• Adjustable Diffusion Built-in

What makes our TubeTrap and StudioTrap products so versatile?  Unlike, 'built-in' wall mounted acoustic products (which allow very little user control), our 'modular' acoustic devices give you full control to create a variable acoustic sub-space to suit nearly any recording or playback situation.  Our products give the recording engineer the tools they require for the demands of quickly changing sessions.
