And clouds aren't realy necesary, cuz i guess you have a high ceiling.
Why only "small diffusers"?

Careful with porous only absorbers (if not on early reflection points):

"Clouds" (broadband absorbers) are needed on any surface that is to close and thus reflects energy back to the sweet spot within the ISD-gap. A 3 meter ceiling is not high enough to do without either absorption or alternatively, angled panels to redirect the energy away from the sweet spot. More on this topic:
