The GIK Acoustics Scopus Tuned Membrane Bass Trap takes low end control to new level with maximum targeted absorption using a membrane design with an air tight chamber. Think of them like a drum in reverse. When you strike a drum, it makes a sound based on the mass of the head and the size and depth of the drum body. In the Scopus Tuned Membrane Bass Trap, the sound strikes the ‘head’ and causes the membrane to move, absorbing the energy based on the mass of the membrane and the depth of the sealed cavity.
Unlike a Helmholtz resonator which has a narrow range of absorption, the Scopus Tuned Membrane Bass Trap has a broad absorption frequency range from 35Hz to 125Hz. Center frequencies are 40Hz, 70Hz, and 100Hz. It is a perfect addition to rooms that already have broadband control, but still require targeted control without absorbing above 125Hz. All this in a package that is as thin as 4 inches!
GIK Acoustics also offers the option to build the Scopus Tuned Membrane Bass Trap to target whatever center frequency is required for your needs (please email or call for pricing). For professional, targeted bass control, look no further than the GIK Acoustics Scopus Tuned Membrane Trap series. Click HERE to view the product video.
Incorporate diffusion in your Tuned Bass Trap with Impression Series or Alpha Series plates.
The addition of an Impression or Alpha Series plate helps diffuse/scatter upper energy vs a direct reflection off the unit, plus it adds visual impact. The plate will not interfere with low end absorption at the desired frequency.
Impression Series plates available in 6 beautiful patterns:
In three different plate finishes: blonde wood veneer, black veneer, or white acrylic
Alpha Series plates available in three scattering options:
- One-Dimensional – The 1D option uses a mathematical sequence in a column that extends the length of the panel. The vertical slats of the 1D allow sound energy to be scattered in a horizontal plane.
- Two-Dimensional – The 2D options use a sequence of columns and rows with variable spacing that provides horizontal and vertical scattering of sound.
- 2D (a) has a pattern of dots and dashes
- 2D (b) has a pattern of dashes
In three different plate finishes: blonde wood veneer, black veneer, or white acrylic

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office issued utility patent US 9,091,060 for GIK’s unique, proprietary design of its acoustic absorbers. The patent covers the design and construction of GIK Acoustics’ 242 Acoustic Panels, 244 Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology, and Monster Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology.
In addition to our patent, we separate ourselves from other acoustic treatment manufacturers in 6 primary areas.
QUALITY MATERIALS MEAN QUALITY PRODUCTS:
GIK Acoustics products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. We start with only the highest-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, then we build every panel by hand employing a unique two-frame system.
Unlike other companies who use inexpensive materials, GIK Acoustics panels are crafted with quality insulation material, fabrics and hardwood plywoods. We start with absorptive insulation material that is intended for room acoustics – not cheap mineral wool whose main purpose is to insulate a ship’s engine room.
We then use carefully selected hardwood plywoods – not cheap imports – to construct our frames. The difference and chief advantage is dimensional stability. Crossbanded layers and balanced construction mean that hardwood plywood won’t shrink, swell or warp as much as lumber. To finish our panels we offer an array of fine fabrics – from our standard 9 options to the full line of Guilford of Maine panel fabrics.
GIK Acoustics products are not only Greensafe, but they carry a Class A fire rating which means we continue to provide our clients with the safest most effective products available. The Class A fire rating means that GIK Acoustics treatments have received the highest rating possible under the ASTM E84, a test used by code officials and regulatory agencies in the acceptance of interior finish materials.
Our team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap and diffusor to exacting standards ensuring the most attractive, effective and dependable products. The difference is our customers are secure in knowing they receive the very best made-to-order acoustic treatments available.
Dollar for dollar, GIK Acoustics’ products absorb more sabins (sound) than any other product on the market. We provide our customers the most cost effective solution to make every space sound it’s best.
GIK Acoustics Panels are tested and certified by the Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories (RAL) to provide the most accurate information on the results you can expect when you purchase our products.
Our exceptional cost-to-benefit ratio means our customers do not over-buy or over-treat a room to get results.

Customer satisfaction is our number one priority at GIK Acoustics.
We start by helping customers determine the best products to treat their space with our free, expert Acoustic Advice. Our well-respected design team has years of experience and are available to provide assistance not only with product selection but product placement within your room.

When it comes to improving the sound quality in a room, many find the science to be overwhelming and the task of DIY’ing acoustic treatments to be daunting. Our solutions are based on the science of acoustics and one of the key dynamics to our success lies in demystifying sound dynamics and room acoustics. We are firm believers in education and our website is full of Educational Articles and Videos. It’s long been our goal to help customers truly understand how sound behaves in a space and the importance and benefits of proper room treatment.
With our blog Acoustics & Audiogeekery, GIK Acoustics aims to explain what you’re hearing and how to improve your audio. Our blog is a resource and a repository of discussions and techniques in the quest to make better audio. Audio is interesting – whether you’re making music, mixing, or simply listening & enjoying – and manipulating technology to solve problems to improve audio is the essence of “audiogeekery.”
Over the past 10 years, GIK Acoustics has pioneered a number of acoustic treatments that you can’t find anywhere else. From the Tri-Trap Corner Bass Trap© to our Soffit Bass Trap© to the built in Scatter Plate, GIK continues to innovate. After a year of research & development, in 2013 we introduced FlexRange Technology – our unique, proprietary system for providing the best in bass trapping and low end absorption.
In 2015 we launched the Alpha Series, a line of acoustic panels and bass traps with a wood face which has a mathematical sequence of slots for one-dimensional scattering / diffusion. The Alpha Series literally changes the face of acoustic panels and bass traps by beautifully combining absorption with diffusion and enhancing any room both aesthetically and acoustically with superior quality, high-performing, and stylish room treatments.
GIK Acoustics is also proud to have launched creative, unique products such as: the multifunctional PIB (Portable Isolation Booth), the decorative and effective Impression Series, and the striking, precise Gotham N23 5″ Quadratic Skyline Diffusor.
We are constantly innovating, so look for more solutions and creative treatments from GIK Acoustics.
It’s our commitment to use environmentally safe materials for all our products. We use ECOSE absorption material, eco-friendly wood and we offer customers recycled fabric options as well. Greensafe means GIK Acoustics products are friendlier on air quality, the environment, and your budget.
