For symmetry the best I can do is 1m worth of soffit traps or super chunks in all four corners but that is only 40% of the wall height covered. No idea how much effect that would have on the sound. Due to WAF I can forget about having traps blocking the windows. Padded curtains made from say duvets are ok though but would that be remotely similar to the soffit traps?

Hadn't seen those before - thanks for sharing the links. Interesting absorb/diffuse pattern approach...
