Just ordered two of PSI’s AVAA bass trap things.
https://www.psiaudio.swiss/avaa-c20-active-bass-trap/
Wanted to try these a couple of years back when they were released, not cheap but seemingly effective and very straightforward to install .
More to follow,
Keith

Arrive tomorrow, available in four exciting colour combos.

The two on the right do look a little like flip top bins though, I would stick to a solid colour.

What are you trying to correct with these? Can you do before and after measurements?
They operate between 0 and 150Hz apparently it is like removing the wall, I have two arriving tomorrow, I will post some measurements.

Did you get the cancelation with subs approach working? This seems like the idiot proof alternative.

Dutch&Dutch haven’t yet implemented their subwoofer software , so I have been experimenting in REWs simulation mode, which has been interesting.
In the meantime I thought I would try the AVAAs which I discussed with Roger Roschnik a couple of years ago when they were released.
I am a retailer for PSI.

I've been interested in these for some time. Looks like a promising concept. Looking forward to hear more and see some measurements!

And which wall / corner do they recommend using them on? You would presumably want them a good distance from the listening position.

RRP is £2200 inc, PSi recommend corner placement, that is where they are most effective , either behind the speakers or behind you, depending where the bass build up is worse.
I understand that you probably ‘need’ two ( depending upon room size) further units do improve response but it is a case of diminishing returns.

Over here we put the bags inside the bins...

Other than that, looks nice, like a fun thing to try out.

Hi

The price is a bit steep IMO. One may get similar or better results with more subs and they don;t need to be expensive subs ... I am a fan of the Gesses multi-sub protocol and it works extremely with even cheap subs ..

Where’s Savage?
AVAA update, they work ( ish) you would need to try them in your own room.
