Boggy departed several years ago.

I have never seen any testing to show the difference in absorption

Hi Glenn, how did you get 40% more effective would appreciate it if you could elaborate on that. thanks!

I would think if anyone knows a rough estimate of the advantage, Glenn would know. Surely he's tested the square version against the triangle one to arrive at that 40% increase number. Basically, they have a test room where they place bass traps and measure the resulting decay across the audio spectrum.

For the Square version, it may be better for certain frequencies, like maybe a 60% increase in absorption for 100-200Hz, but maybe for 200-300 range it's like 30% increase (because higher frequencies are closer to being absorbed completely), so an average of 40% is calculated. It's still very rough, and depends hugely on other factors that nobody can accurately predict.

My guess wouldn't have been 40%, that seems kinda high, but I'd trust Glenn/GIK and maybe not conclude it's just marketing speak to help sell more products
