RealTraps introduces new line of acoustic panels emphasizing appearance.

New Milford, CT, USA - -August 7, 2006 - -RealTraps has announced three new acoustic panels that will appeal to anyone who considers appearance as important as acoustic performance. Besides the new panels, RealTraps also announced that it is now including mounting hardware with all of its acoustic products. The new models are as follows:

The new Corner MondoTrap is similar to a standard MondoTrap at four inches deep but with beveled sides to nest attractively in a corner and appear only one inch deep. All other dimensions and properties are the same as a standard MondoTrap, the most capable bass trap available at any price. Price is $349.99.

The RealTraps Tri -Corner is a triangle shaped bass trap, also four inches thick, that fits perfectly in tri -corners where two walls meet the ceiling or floor. Like the Corner MondoTrap, the new Tri -Corner appears only one inch thick when installed, to intrude visually as little as possible while still retaining very high performance. At 32 inches on each side, it has a surface area large enough to tame even very low bass frequencies. Price is $249.99.

The new RFZ panel is meant specifically for first reflections, but at 32 by 42 inches by 2 inches thick, its size and shape are more appropriate than typical 2 by 4 foot panels. The larger size creates a deeper Reflection Free Zone, whether the panel is mounted to be taller or wider. The front surface is also beveled to look more like a picture frame than an acoustic panel. Price is $249.99.

All three new products are available in various colors, and they can be seen in the new Room Setup video on the company's web site:

According to RealTraps co -owner Ethan Winer, "The appearance of acoustic treatment has always been an obstacle to their acceptance in home settings and even some high -end recording studios. These new panels are very attractive, yet still offer the extremely high performance RealTraps has become famous for. Previously, people had to choose between acoustic treatment that looks good or works well. Now everyone can have both."

RealTraps is owned by Ethan Winer and Doug Ferrara. Ethan is known throughout the industry for his many technical articles in audio and computer magazines, and he has engineered and produced several classical music CDs, including a recording of his own cello concerto. Doug is a professional musician and recording engineer who holds an advanced degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic and has been a systems engineer for Intel and Motorola.
