Probably a dumb question incoming:
I ordered a kit of GIK 244 bass traps, and I was planning to use them behind my mains as just large absorbers...but I noticed upon taking them out of the box they are solid in the front. Like... you can knock on their face and it's solid. I didn't order any range limiter thing or anything special, just a pair of black 244s. SKU 244.
Before I make myself look like a fool, is it normal to have a solid face? They just absorb through the back and you have to space them off the wall? It's not a scatter plate or something on these, it's completely solid. I can't feel any holes or slats.
I have a feeling I'm just asking a really dumb question, but, I figure you guys won't judge
. If I were to mount this thing on the wall, it would completely block the insulation inside from being exposed to air...
Same shipment I got 224s and those are what I expected, they breathe through the front. Insulation behind it. When I talk into it, I can hear that it is absorbing. When I talk into the 244s, it shoots right back at me.
