BEST ROOM KITS AVAILABLE ... AT ANY PRICE
RealTraps offers a number of Room Kits to fit many rooms and all budgets. They are a fabulous match for many rooms, and if your room is unusual they are still useful as a starting point for developing your treatment strategy. We're glad to advise you to determine the best combination of traps for your particular room and budget. The same 10+ quantity pricing applies regardless of whether you buy one of our kits or buy the traps individually. However, some kits offer a slightly larger discount.
All MiniTraps and MicroTraps listed below are the full size 2x4-foot models. For any of the kits that include MondoTraps, you may substitute the more attractive Corner MondoTraps for an added charge of $50 per trap. Or you may substitute the shorter 2'x4'x6" MondoTraps for no additional cost. Or any such combination.

We begin with our Starter Kit, which includes four MiniTraps for corner bass trapping, plus three MicroTraps to control early reflections. One MiniTrap goes in each wall-wall corner. Two of the MicroTraps go at the side wall reflection points, and the third is for ceiling reflections. First reflections are described in more detail in the Room Setup and RFZ articles. This is a great way to make a real improvement when our full Room Kits are beyond your budget.
STANDARD ROOM KIT
Our Standard Room Kit includes eight MiniTraps for corner bass trapping, plus three MicroTraps to control early reflections. Two of the MicroTraps go at the side wall reflection points, and the third is for ceiling reflections.
MONDO ROOM KIT
The Mondo Room Kit is similar to our Standard Room Kit, but replaces four of the MiniTraps with MondoTraps for even more bass trapping. MondoTraps will go in the four wall-wall corners, and MiniTraps are for the ceiling corners where their smaller size and lighter weight makes them easier for one person to install.
STANDARD SURROUND KIT
Our Standard Surround Kit adds three more MicroTraps for a total of eight MiniTraps and six MicroTraps. This lets you have two at the ceiling reflection points, plus one more on each side wall for the surround speakers.
MONDO SURROUND KIT
The Mondo Surround Kit is similar to our Standard Surround Kit replacing four of the MiniTraps with MondoTraps for double the absorption below 80Hz.
The Mega Starter Kit adds eight of the best bass traps available to the four MiniTraps and three MicroTraps in the regular Starter Kit. This is a powerhouse treatment package for a small room. The MegaTraps are stacked floor-to-ceiling in the front corners. The three MicroTraps give you the Reflection-Free Zone, and the versatile MiniTraps can be used on the front wall, rear wall, or wall/ceiling corners.
STANDARD LARGE ROOM KIT
Our Standard Large Room Kit comes with ten MiniTraps for corner bass trapping, plus seven MicroTraps for first reflections, plus four HF MiniTraps for rear wall reflections. Three of the MicroTraps go on the ceiling at each of the front speaker reflection points, and four are for the side walls to handle the front and surround speaker reflection points.
MEGA SURROUND KIT
Our Mega Surround Kit is an extremely thorough treatment strategy for all but the largest rooms. This kit adds 16 MegaTraps to our Standard Surround Kit. This means the best bass traps available in all four corners. Eight MiniTraps provide plenty of additional, cost-effective coverage area in the bass trapping strategy, and can be used on the front or rear walls, or any available wall/ceiling corners. The six MicroTraps allow you to create an ample Reflection-Free Zone for two-channel or surround systems.
RealTraps Modular Kits are a fabulous option where the goal is world-class performance in freestanding units that require no installation. All of the Modular Kits - the Diffuser Module, and both the Standard and HF Mondo Modules - occupy the same form factor creating a two-foot wide modular section. For Diffuser Modules, a 2'x4'x6" diffuser rests on top of either a 2'x2'x6" or 2'x3'x6" Fat MondoTrap. The Mondo Modules are either six, seven, or eight feet high. These panels are all six inches thick and stable when stacked, so permanent mounting is not needed. Each kit includes non-slip rubber pads to place between the panels to keep them from sliding around or getting scratched.
The difference between Modules is what goes on top - either a Diffuser (Near or Far style) for diffusion plus bass trapping, a MondoTrap for maximum bass trapping and less high frequency absorption, or an HF MondoTrap for bass trapping and full-on high frequency absorption. These units can be placed around the perimeter of the room using Mondo Modules in the corners, HF Mondo Modules at the loudspeaker reflection points, and Diffuser Modules everywhere else. This is shown in our Hearing Is Believing video, and can turn nearly any room into a world-class listening environment.
NOTE: For rooms with a sufficiently high ceiling you can use the 8-foot tall Mondo Module based on two 2x4 foot Fat MondoTraps. Each panel is exactly 4 feet plus 3/16 inch tall, so the ceiling height must be at least 8 feet plus 1 inch to accommodate two four-foot panels. For lower ceilings you'll instead use one 2x4 foot Fat MondoTrap plus either a 2x2 or 2x3 type underneath. (Note that panels sold as modules do not need or include the rear mounting bars shown on our Installing page.)
The Diffuser Module includes one RealTraps Diffuser stacked on top of either a 2'x2'x6" or 2'x3'x6" MondoTrap. This is the ideal way to treat the rear wall - or any wall - in a control room or listening room because it offers diffusion at mid and high frequencies, plus substantial bass trapping in the wall-floor corner. It's also perfect for recording rooms. You can use multiple kits to completely cover the wall, leaving 18 to 24 inches clear at each side for corner bass traps.
If your ceiling is at least 7-1/2 feet high, adding one MiniTrap or 2'x4' MondoTrap in the wall-ceiling corner above each pair of diffusors will help even further. This is shown in the upper photo at left. For ceilings at least 8 feet plus one inch high, another option is to add Fat MondoTraps on top of the diffusers. Either one 2x2 above each diffuser, or one 2x4 sideways above each pair of diffusers.
MONDO MODULE OR HF MONDO MODULE
The Mondo Module includes one 2'x4'x6" MondoTrap plus one 2'x2'x6" or 2'x3'x6" MondoTrap as a base. The upper 2'x4' MondoTrap can be either the Standard style for corner bass trapping as shown in black in the two lower photos at left, or the HF style for reflection points as shown in gray.
