I have two questions related to room acoustics and symmetry.
1.) My stereo is setup in my living room which has hardwood floors (with a rug), windows, leather furniture, and a bit of echo. The left wall is sheet rock with a handful of pictures on it. The right wall has two windows with blinds covering them. I have a RealTraps 2x4 HF Mini Trap on a stand at the primary reflection point of each wall.
I have the option to hang heavy curtains over the windows on the right wall. I believe that doing so should alleviate some of the echo. However, I am concerned that in a room where the right wall is heavily damped relative to the left wall I might experience some imbalance in the imaging or spatial reproduction.
2.) I could likely add some bass trapping in the front left corner of my listening room. However, I can not add any bass trapping to the right front corner. I'm not really sure if bass trapping needs to be symmetrical or not.
If you've got some experience in the matter, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my two questions.
