So I am in the proccess of building some of your wood panel bass traps. So far I have 2 2x8 deep bass traps up on two corners (diagnaly accross from each other) and 1 2x4 (over my bed)deep bass traps on another corner. I am planning on putting a 2x7 bass trap on another corner in the future, their is a sliding door and some concrete steps at that spot I want to place it but I plan on walling it up soon.
So now I need some adice on were to place the mid/high absorber and the high bass trap.
I have two large windows with a decent view and 5 feet of space in between (enough for 2 traps) in front of my computer desk and speakers. Which traps should I place there? On the opposite side of that wall I also have enough space for 2 traps that will be spaced out more because there will be a window between them. What traps should I put there?

Whatever else you do, you need an equal number of deep-bass and high-bass panel traps.

The general goal is to place all three trap types alernating around the room, exactly as shown and explained in my article. It's okay if you deviate from that a little, but you don't want to skew the balance too much. Assuming you have the room, you should put one of each type of panel trap in every corner. Fiberglass absorbers and additional panel traps can be spread around the room on the walls.
For specific advice on placing fiberglass-only absorbers, see the sidebar "Creating an RFZ" in the forum FAQ.
