Help me with my room guys!

Ok so I realized after spending some time in a decent studio (301 in sydney) mixing, how bad my room acoustics are and have bit the bullet and ordered a beginner room kit (with tri traps) from GIK so treatment is on its way... but I have a few q's

1a) is my desk in the right spot... should I center it, or is it ok being out by a bit (to the right by about 70cm from centre)... should it be on a different wall?

1) in terms of setting up to the 38% should I do it to the farther wall, or the closer 1

2) where should I be putting the bass traps in the first place?only place I cant put it in the corner is where the pallet racking is in the drawing (which are FULL of gear )... should I put it up against it anyway? What about all the other corners?

3) above the couch I have a MASSIVE Quilt... can a 242 go behind it? or should i get a stand so its in front?

4) There is a big window at the back of the room (blue) and 2 doors (red) in the room

Big preemptive Thanks! (oh and dimensions are in mm... i'm an Aussie in the UK after all )

planning on doing the room... then maybe upgrading the monitors from Events to adams or focals... (but never mind that for now)

1) You really need to move it to more center and away from the wall.

1) 38% is only a starting point, so split the difference of the far back and closer back, but realize you may find moving a bit further back or forward may be better.

2)I would not worry about that corner or move the rack out of there and put the trap there. You can always straddle upper ceiling corners.


4)Not sure what the question is here.

Since you bought from us please feel free to send us pictures and so on so we can give you personal room advise. Your part of the GIK family now.
