|Tweaks:||Jon Risch Acuostic Panels at first and second reflection points and front wall. Foam (for right now) absroptive panels at first ceiling reflection point.|
Absorbant triangular panels in room corners
1x6 tongue & groove knotty pine wall panels. Becasue of the varied spacing between the panel joints, tongue in groove panels provide a modicum of bass trap effect in the room. Of course the room in NOT soundproof because of this.

Adding the Jon Risch panels elevated my room/system to a new level. It was like a major component upgrade.
Next task is to contsruct JR bass traps to tame the LF modes in my room.
