Venting as a means of controlling bass...
If the "perfect" bass trap is a door open to the outside world (super quiet location) has anyone ever considered venting a room, large vents with dampened ducting of who knows in length, to let low frequencies keep moving? In hopes they move out of the room? Maybe like porting the room? Just thinking of the next film mixing stage. Looking at building a room in a space that is at least 40' long, 20 - 30' wide and 14' high. It's a wide open space so lots of options suffice to say it will be for mixing film and a single operator room.

Ventilation is always considered when a new studio is being built, of course! I doubt it would be the primary means to tame low end, over the many available. Closets, desks, bookshelves, nooks and crannies etc:cowbell:

Helmholz resonator. The problem is they are frequency-specific.
