Tri-corners

Is it necessary to make the facing of the tri-corner traps on the front wall as reflective? I I installed two of them but the lower mids & bass became dry

You can use FRK on the fronts of them which will reflect upper mids and up but the point of bass traps is to absorb the bass.

I live in India & access to stuff is as labour-intensive as finding life on other planets. Shall I install a plastic sheet on the face of the tri-corners???

Never tested it but a thin plastic should work. Also using a stiff paper would also work.

Is it a good idea to use think paper + insulation then cover them with acoustically transparent cloth? :D
