    Great job with everything. I love the black and blue color scheme.

    It's good to see you using so many room treatments. No matter what size your room is, acoustic treatments will likely make a more positive change, over anything else.

    Just to clarify. All the wall panels are not room treatments (most are cosmetic)... I have the following:
    6 (4" deep) for first reflections on the ceiling
    3 (4" deep) for first reflections on the side walls
    whole wall behind screen 3" deep
    back wall 9" deep plus corner traps

    Hey, as long as they are covered in fabric, they cut down on side reflections.

    I see what you are saying, but they don't cut down much except for the highest frequencies... Correct?
