Art Noxon, Founder of ASC.
Born in 1984 from the marriage of concrete basement listening rooms and amplified low frequencies, TubeTraps took the world by storm. ASC was soon formed to help spread the joy of musical bass and highly articulate rooms throughout the land. Because the TubeTrap was such a versatile acoustic device, it became an acoustic building block for recording engineers and audio experts to explore and experiment with acoustics in their small rooms.
The TubeTrap was the world’s first factory-built broadband bass trap. Portable and extremely efficient, the second generation of TubeTrap prototypes received an acoustic crossover which served as a treble range diffuser. Once introduced to market, the TubeTrap basically created the room acoustic products industry, and has become an iconic acoustic fixture in high-end audio. The cylindrical columns seen so frequently in the corners of ultra-high-performance, high-power, high-fidelity audio rooms, are of course TubeTraps.
