    These are the real deal. Real Traps is one of the recognized producers of acoustical materials...particularly in the area of bass traps. Their professional customer base includes musicians like Nile Rogers. The amazing thing about their products is not just the performance, but the low cost. Here is a link to their site:

    MiniTraps are designed to excel at low frequencies, and intentionally have lower absorption at high frequencies. This lets you install enough of them to adequately solve bass problems without making the room sound too dead. For small rooms four to eight MiniTraps will make a big improvement at low frequencies. Even two MiniTraps in the room corners will provide some help, though four is a more practical minimum. Larger rooms of course require more treatment, as do rooms that are excessively live or have severe bass problems. With all acoustic treatment, and bass trapping in particular, the goal is to cover a sufficient percentage of the room's surfaces. That is, treating 30 percent of the surface area will improve the room far more than treating only 5 percent.

    For more information and how to mount and where to mount the traps (corners are best) look here:

    I am selling two black minitraps. They are about four months old. I bought 6 total. I'm installing curtains on the screen wall, so I now have two traps too many.

    They sold for $400 shipped. I'll sell both for $300 shipped. Please note: One has a cosmetic (2 inch) dent on the bottom portion of the frame, otherwise they are perfectly fine.

    Thanks for looking

    Also....

    MiniTraps are 2 by 4 feet, 3-1/4 inches thick, and weigh only 16 pounds. They can be mounted easily with one screw or hook - just like a picture - without glue or permanent wall damage. Yet despite their small size these are real performers that have exceptional specs, especially at low frequencies. They can be mounted vertically or horizontally as space permits, or high up on a wall where they're out of the way. And since MiniTraps are made with rigid fiberglass and metal instead of foam, they are non-flammable and can be installed with confidence in public venues
