THats a thought! I like the design. I'll have to read up on those "bad" boys.

Just 'cause you're right doesn't mean I'm wrong

Or you could do something like GIK alpha panels which are absorption panels with wood slats in front of it that does the diffusion part. Make regular panels and get some 1/8 inch wood with vertical slats and glue to front of panel. But I recommend talking to GIK to see what they say about their advice on what you should do. Its free service and you don't have to actually purchase anything.

With those 3 subs you will have alot of bass buildup in the corners so start with corner bass traps first. Floor to ceiling is optimal and do all corners if you can. This will absorb low frequencies that is bouncing around in the corners and then bounce back around in the room, the traps will absorb it so resulting in tighter, cleaner bass with improved decay. I see your wall art....are they acoustic panels? If not, you can get acoustic panels with same art work you have if you want to keep same theme in the room.
