Default Help Me Treat My Room Please :)

Hey Folks,

I have treated my room with rockwool and woodwool fully.

Now i am nowhere into any kind of music engineering and treatment so I am hearing that I should add some acoustic diffusers and absorbers to the room. How can I know if I really need this ? and will adding some (Auralex stuff) will improve anything?

Moreover, how should i install them ?? I mean in which locations of the room ? I heard that diffusers should be placed on the ceiling just above the listener position and the absorbers behind the speakers starting from the ceiling ...
Do I need to add some left and right and behind ??

Please advise without any irony or anything ...

In Germany there's a company that manufactures absorbers, diffusors and bass traps, and they also offer an analysis of your room based on pictures and necessary data such as room hight, width, etc that you provide.

Based on that analysis they create a 3D model of your room were they place the necessary acoustic elements, along with written information on what they think you should do.

I contacted them after I payed a lot of money to another company who treated my room, still leaving me with a significant problem in the LF. And they did a great job.
Give it a shot - it's free of charge so what have you got to loose?
