Phonic trap ducting

Just wondering if anybody has used phonic trap ducting? I was planning on using regular acoustic ducting but came across this and wondering if it's worth the extra money?

I bought some for my new set up, it's far superior to any I've used previously . Value is a perception thing but I thought it worth it personally.

Thanks for the input. The added cost isn't a big deal if it will work better than the standard acoustic ducting with the fiberglass insulation. I've alwaus used regular ducting since sound wasn't really an issue but its a big concern with my new setup.

Also can you recommend any good online shops to buy it? Neither G&H or greens have it and im not familiar with any other european online stores.

I got some. Pretty happy with it.

I'm not sure much difference when it comes to sound  the to conventional acoustic ducting. definitely not any worse.

I bought it so i dont have to deal with Fiberglass.

for that I'm happy to pay more. i found the fiber stuff despite my best efforts seem to get everywhere and well its nasty, irritating stuff.

If you put it in Google and check shopping there's several that are good , I don't want to spam but the shop that comes up in Yorkshire is very good

I highly recommend the  PhonicTrap ducting. I have tried using regular ducting too but found it was creating quite a bit of noise. Since switching to the Phonictrap the difference is immense. Can't hear a thing. I'm running both 6" and 8". I wouldn't go back to using anything else. If you do decide to go for it then make sure to really stretch it out to fully open it out. Makes a lot of difference. It is really compacted down when you open up the box. Oh and I bought mine off the famous auction website. Cheapest I could find.

 

All the best

Thanks for the input, I'm definitely going to order some soon. Have an 8 inch Can max fan pro coming which isn't very loud so my ventilation should be nice and quiet.

Acoustic ducting can be a pain but only when cutting it. Not sure of the brand I got but its pretty tough and not split despite being thrown around a lot. Once cut its easy to tape up the fibreglass enclosure.

 

Depends on how good the decibel levels are. If they are noticeably better than acoustic ducting I'd think about upgrading.

 

Will have to check it out.
