I can't seem to find the density on this. I researched on some sites and it states that this kind of insulation has the density of 100kg/m³.
Seems very dense. But as it's only 3 cm thick then more density seems the way to go right?

Hej Mattias,

Can this be of some help for you?

I haven't tried DIY T-traps but I recall somebody used "rörskålar" for similar projects. If economical compared to SuperChunks or Square pillar like "Soffit" corner absorbers I don't know.

Best

Tack Åke.

I found these secon hand for 50kr each. havent bought them yet. Its just 2 hours drive from where I live(Borås) so Im very keen on buying these.

But Im still suspicious about how good these homemade tube traps is?
Can they really stand up against 8" Fiberglass?

I understand, that the way they are built, they diffuse and absorbs by the soundwave go in and out with the natural airgap that exists within the tube.

Hmmm.... still not sure....
