Vicoustic – Products for Better Acoustics - HiFi is never better than the room


Super Bass Extreme is efficient between 60 and 125 Hz and is designed to be positioned in corners. Inside the box, there’s a wooden membrane that the bass waves try to resonate – much like the front skin of a kick drum. But two layers of high density foam stops the motion by absorbing the energy. The back side of the panel is perforated with small holes, which also turns the bass trap into a Helmholtz resonator. The micro perforation actually makes the bass trap about 20% more efficient – a 2-in-1 bass trap, if you like.

Installing four to eight Super Bass Extreme panels in a room will have a great effect on the reverberation time in the low-end, making it shorter and thus help your speakers produce a more dynamic low-end. Tightening up the low-end will also bring clarity to the mid-range and treble. It’s psychoacoustics!

Due to its revolutionary design, the Super Bass Extreme is much more efficient compared to just putting foam or mineral wool in the corners.

An efficient bass trap like Super Bass Extreme will calm down the low-end of the audio spectrum and make your speakers sound punchier and more open.

The wooden front panel has two functions, providing sufficient mid-high frequency absorption to control corner reflections without deadening the sound, while simultaneously acting as a diffuser.

When porous materials such as foam are applied to corners or walls, they become less efficient in dealing with low frequencies, because the particle velocity or air movement associated with long wavelengths is low. However, the sound pressure is at its maximum. Super Bass Extreme's internal membrane transforms this high pressure by converting the pressure fluctuations into air motion. The membrane sympathetically vibrates over a frequency range of 75–85 Hz, causing the air to pass through a layer of high-density foam that absorbs the low frequencies. Because of the high pressure it has also been possible to introduce a further technique for aiding absorption, with the micro-perforated panel at the back of the unit acting as a tuned Helmholtz resonator. Tests actually showed the perforations to give 20% more efficiency, compared to using a non-perforated panel.

Super Bass Extreme is highly recommended for smaller rooms with low frequency issues. The panel can be used in different corner positions and its modular structure allows further units to be added as required. With an eye to interior design compatibility, Super Bass Extreme is available in five elegant wood finishes that match Vicoustic's range of Wave Wood panels.

If you need to stack several Super Bass Extreme units, but want to avoid gluing them to the wall, SBE Stacker Base and SBE Stacker Level are your perfect partners. With these stackers, the panels will stand firmly on the floor and can easily be moved from one room to another.
