Acoustics placment + Where to place my desk

Hello!
im now trying to make my mixing studio better sounding.
The thing is I don't know where to place my stuff.
bascliy the main problems are:
1) The window! [very bad low freq]
2) The door
3) The room in genrly sounds very very wet




Can anybody help me get a good placement for the bass trap, absurvers, defusers and my desk?

i wuold also like to cover the hole wall where thars the window with acustic pannels 7 cm after the window so i cuold "cancel" him (the window)

Thank you for your time!

156 views and no replies means that people think you should do some of your own research first before posting something like this. There are users on this forum who will give you great, seasoned advice - people who really know what they're talking about - if you go to the trouble to do some learning first.

Start Here: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/studio-building-acoustics/610173-acoustics-treatment-reference-guide-look-here.html

Specifically look at #2, to answer your questions.

Dig hard for a week. Do some learning. Then post with the questions you still have. The issues of acoustics, speaker placement and studio set up have been discussed to death already, and every room is different - there are no magical solutions.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the reply buddy!
I did actually read most of the articls before, and i do understand the main idea of acustics.

I do understnd where to place, I just don't understand what to place where.
i know that the bass traps shuld go to the corners. but where alse shuld i put them?

i know what difusers does, but again I don't know where to put them.

Same about absorvers.

and about the desk, all i see is "You shuld place him at the middle"
but maybe in my case it shuld be in the niche (next to the door (150X60 cm)

And honesty I do not want to be an acoustic engineer,
I just wanna make my studio better acusticly.
I was Hoping you can help me with that stuff, give me a second opinion.
Thanks again!

That's the smallest studio I've ever seen.

This might not jive with some people but I say put the desk facing the upper right corner.That way,your rear wall is not reflecting sound directly back at you.

You can always try it.. If you start to test different areas you would want to use the following program.
