Base trap spacing

Hello everyone, I got my corner bass traps from GIK Acoustics today. The thing is they won’t go all the way in the corners because of the wall outlet that I am using to plug my Niagara 1200 in. I wrote GIK and was told it shouldn’t affect the sound, he also told me I could get a right turn power strip and plug my power cable coming from my Niagara in it. The idea behind the right turn power strip is to get the bass traps closer to the corners. Currently they are 6 inches from the back all and 2 inches from the side walls. I really don’t want to have a new outlet installed. Thanks guys.


“To be honest the ocd in me it drives me nuts. They are cut to be put in the corners for a reason.”

😀, your head would explode if you saw my room. I have GIK 1D Alpha panels stacked in front of my corner traps in two corners of my room.

Since you were saying no to new outlets, I figured you'd surely say no to moving it. Of course, that's a great solution. :)

If the circuit is not already dedicated, instead of moving it I would suggest running a new one. 



Just a note. Typically 2 meter power cords are recommended. This is because the longer they are, the more “power conditioning” you get. This was a fairly new concept to me, so, I got a hold of a one meter and two meter AudioQuest Hurricane and tried it. Darn if it wasn’t true. The two meter sounded notably better than the one meter, quieter and more dynamic.
