My front speakers are very close to the side wall. I plan to place 2inch or 4inch compressed fiberglass (2feet x 4feet) panels on both side walls.

Is it good practice to place panel just next to speaker on side wall?

Is it advised to use 2 inch or 4inch panels?

If I need to place on the side wall next to the speaker, does bottom of panel starts from the floor or from the ear height.

Appreciate your help.

I could not find much information other than FAQ on the web site. Appreciate suggestions from anybody.

I already made 3 panes 2x4 OC 703 with thickness of 4inch. I got help from another forum to place about 1 1/2 to 2 feet above the floor. When I place speaker next to the panels in an angle, the panel will be almost close to center of the speaker.

I will also test with anthem receiver software if there are any bumps. Since my speakers are almost close to the wall and I don't have space due to bigger size of the screen, I want to use panels as absorber.
