Optimized for corner mounting, Super Bass Extreme’s elegant wooden front is based on Vicoustic’s flagship Wavewood panel. This is combined with a membrane, two high-density foam layers and a micro-perforated rear panel, with 1mm holes, that acts as a Helmholtz resonator. Designed to provide effective low frequency absorption between 60–125 Hz, it delivers maximum effectiveness between 75–100 Hz.
The wooden front panel has two functions, providing sufficient mid-high frequency absorption to control corner reflections without deadening the sound, while simultaneously acting as a diffuser.
When porous materials such as foam are applied to corners or walls, they become less efficient in dealing with low frequencies, because the particle velocity or air movement associated with long wavelengths is low. However, the sound pressure is at its maximum. Super Bass Extreme’s internal membrane transforms this high pressure by converting the pressure fluctuations into air motion. The membrane sympathetically vibrates over a frequency range of 75–85 Hz, causing the air to pass through a layer of high-density foam that absorbs the low frequencies. Because of the high pressure it has also been possible to introduce a further technique for aiding absorption, with the micro-perforated panel at the back of the unit acting as a tuned Helmholtz resonator. Tests actually showed the perforations to give 20% more efficiency, compared to using a non-perforated panel.
Super Bass Extreme is highly recommended for smaller rooms with low frequency issues. The panel can be used in different corner positions and its modular structure allows further units to be added as required. With an eye to interior design compatibility, Super Bass Extreme is available in different wood finishes that match Vicoustic’s range of Wave Wood panels.
Application: It can be used in various places like Listening Rooms, Home Theaters, Recording and Broadcast Studios, Post Production Studios, Office, Rehearsal Rooms, Conference and Teleconference Rooms, Public Spaces, Auditoriums, etc.

Wall surfaces should be examined prior to installation, ensuring they are clean, smooth, and dry. If you have unpainted gypsum board surfaces, these should be primed with a drywall primer (or another material manufactured especially for the purpose), to equalize the absorption between the gypsum board face paper, joint compound, and skin coating materials. You should then apply the paint, and allow air circulation in order to dry the paint within the time frame specified by the paint manufacturer. Please ensure the paint is dry before installing the acoustic panel. Make sure the room has all the conditions necessary to receive the acoustic panels. After you apply the glue on the back of each acoustic panel, please ensure you hold the acoustic panel on the wall the required time (mentioned below), and ensure it stays fixed in place.
Please Note: Flexi Glue is not included but can be purchased separately from our website.
Apply Vicoustic Flexi Glue at the back of the Super Bass Extreme acoustic panel (As shown in Step 1).
Apply Vicoustic Flexi Glue on both sides (As shown in Step 2).
Apply the acoustic panel on the wall surface (As shown in Step 3).
Leave the Super Bass Extreme glued on the surface for 15 seconds (As shown in Step 4).
Remove the Super Bass Extreme slightly from the wall surface (approximately 2 cm) during 15 seconds (As shown in Step 5).
Apply again the Super Bass Extreme on the surface and hold for 1 minute and ensure it stays fixed in place (As shown in Step 6).
