Hello there! I have been watching your videos for several days and educating myself on room acoustics. I am not sure how much I am willing to commit to, so I am posting on your forum instead of submitting the form.

I am an electronic producer. I work in a large rectangular-ish room 15′ by 24′, with 10′ ceilings that vault to 14′ in the middle. One of the shorter walls is 19′ long, as it includes the entry alcove. I have been working in a somewhat enclosed desk, surrounded by bookcases, on the 19′ wall for seven years. I recently got a new desk and new speakers (PreSonus Sceptre S8s), and I am currently working along one of the longer walls, with the left side of the desk about 3 feet from a wall and the other side is open to the room. I am sure this is a no-no! I definitely have some mid-lows missing at this new location in the room, and will need some treatment.

I can attach photos or just submit the form if that makes things easier. The room is slightly oddly shaped since it includes an entry alcove. My main question is whether I should stay in the new desk position or go back to my old wall, where I could potentially have up to six feet of clearance on either side of the desk before hitting a boundary. I will still need corner traps and some absorption on the wall in front of me, at the minimum, either way.

Thank you in advance for your reply!

Dennis, thank you so much for speaking to me on the phone today. You took time to analyze my room, and I appreciate it so much. I have learned so much from you, from your videos and from our conversation. I feel pretty confident about what will work best in this room, now I just have to make it happen. Thank you for your kindness, it is appreciated!
