Yes that is a lot of blank wall area so you will naturally have a lot of upper frequency reflections (reverb). In the future, I would get some absorption (or diffusion) on the upper wall areas.

Thanks @myfipie . Unfortunately, those areas have been deemed off-limits by my wife. I do have two bass trap panels coming in from GIK, so we will see how that helps. I did have a contractor come in to see about finishing the upstairs media room - so I'm on the way at least. My wife is trying to steer me from adding a pool and just finishing that room. That's how tired she is of my HT hobby, lol.

Hey guys.
Are tuned membrane traps very effective for treating SBIR? I have a huge notch in response at 135 Hz which I believe is SBIR and would try to treat it by putting membrane trap at right location. Broadband panels don't help much.
