Treating sound reflections behind furniture?

This is not for studio but its for a space where I do a lot a lot of my producing.

I would like to clean up some bass problems. As seen in photo I have a speaker either side of a wood low cabinet. Also one speaker is in a small corner. Speakers are front ported.

I am getting a "woow" sound following the kick drum from behind the low cabinet which is about 4 inches away from wall.

What are my options for treating the void between wall and cabinet? DIY or low cost preferable.

Depends on what is causing the problem. If something is resonating/vibrating, then you will need to do something to stop the vibration (adding mass and/or damping material can help). If it's just the room acoustics in that corner, then adding bass traps there will help a lot.

Thanks for reply JWL.GIK

Yea I hope to get a trap sorted soon for corner.

I know bass is more omnidirectional but I am sure its getting behind and under cabinet. House is in slow process of renovation so floor is just the old plastic tiles on concrete until I lay Bamboo.

I will see if I cab find an off cut of carpet for under cabinet then I guess its just a matter of filling the voids with something absorbent.
