    Ok the clears some things up.

    The sharp drop off in the low end i am attributing to the alesis elevates.

    The big concern is the 30db jump between 70-100hz. This is a critical range, and 30db is gonna leave things too uneven to be fun to mix on.

    Heres my thoughts.


    I would try putting the speakers very close to the wall (in an equilateral triangle to mix location) This positioning can help reduce cancellations, and can boost sub frequencies due to being close to the room corners.

    This what id do first. Together with your current set of measurements, the new set will outline the range of available response. Then you can find the best compromise of speaker and listening location.


    You need much more bass trapping than is in the room. In addition to making the face of the traps larger, i would stuff the cavity behind with uncompressed insulation.

    Then i would add bass traps along the wall ceiling junction.

    The ceiling cloud should extend from behind the speakers to behind the listening position.

    If its possible to space the wall panels furher off the wall this will help flatten bass.

    Once the trapping, cloud, and speaker location is optimized, if the bass is still varying alot, it would be time to add tuned panel traps, and/or transform your bass traps to resonators by adding wood slats.

    If its not too late id still consider making the studio a single room studio since you will get much better mixes and easier tracking.

    If the entire 20x30 was available you could have nearly world class level room response without a ton of effort.
