Jeff, I used a software that lets you put all the info of your room (WxLxH; size of speakers; TV, distances and stuff). It's very simplistic but works oh so well! It tells you where the first reflection points are.
Unfortunately, I only have it on my work computer - oh the irony - but I'm at home now. I'll try to send you that program sometime tomorrow, but definitely before the end of the week.
I found it here at AVS... not sure the name of it nor the name of the thread
As Alan said, the corners are the most common place for bass traps - but they have to be thick!
Also, just like Aliens did, you can submit photos of your room at the GIK Acoustics website, provide them with a preliminary budget, and they will suggest you what you should/could do with your room.
As a starter, thick curtains and a shaggy rug is a nice first step.
But proper treatments make a huge difference and you should certainly check them out (too bad PSA doesn't offer that with the free shipping both ways, eh?
One last thing: at the end of the day, don't worry too
much about graphs. If the system is sounding good to you, hooray. Is there room for improvement? Well, always. But you gotta keep having fun! That's the whole point of this hobby.
