New Milford, CT, USA -September 1, 2004 -In less than two years, since introducing MiniTraps, RealTraps has become one of the most popular makers of acoustic treatment products. Between its consistently favorable magazine reviews and praise from top industry pros like Nile Rodgers, Charles Dye, and Lee Levin, RealTraps is one of the hottest new audio manufacturers in the US.

Now with MondoTraps, RealTraps raises the bar even higher. Where MiniTraps are nearly six times more effective at low frequencies than typical corner foam, MondoTraps absorb twice again more below 100 Hz. At 2` by 4`9` and 4 inches thick, they are only slightly larger than MiniTraps, and they're also affordable at just $279.99 each factory direct. Like all RealTraps products, MondoTraps are made with rigid fiberglass and metal instead of foam, so they are Class A fire rated and can be installed with confidence in public venues. They hang easily with standard picture frame wire, or can be mounted on a microphone stand. An attractive custom stand is also available from RealTraps for $60.

According to RealTraps co -owner Ethan Winer, `The main problem in most studios and listening rooms is acoustic interference that causes severe variations in the low frequency response. Nulls of 30 dB and even deeper are not only common, but typical. Just as important is taming modal ringing, which reduces the clarity and articulation of bass instruments. Many recording engineers and audiophiles cover their walls with foam, but that makes the room too dead sounding at mid and high frequencies while doing little for bass problems. MondoTraps are far more absorbent than foam at low frequencies, so they do a superior job overall and with fewer pieces to install. Even as low as 40 Hz, their absorption coefficient is above 0.50 when corner mounted, which we believe is unprecedented for any bass trap product.`
