Default Need recommendations - setup control room width or length wise

Hi All...

I have a small room 6ft X 9ft. I am trying to decide the best way to setup my monitoring position.

I can setup so that I am facing the short wall (6 feet) this will leave the exit door on my right along the longer 9 foot wall. It's approximately in the center of the wall. Or I could setup my desk in the wider position giving me a wider work area but less room to move about in my chair.

Either way the walls are concrete on two sides and the opposite two sides are drywall. I will need to buy some owens corning to place in strategic positions, such as my right side/left side and possibly above my head angled slightly downward as it gets closer to the speakers/control surface.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

I don't know much about room design but would love to learn more.

Thanks!

Quick guess would be face the long wall. Lots of absorption on the wall behind and the 2 side walls.

That is so small that the fundamentals are going to be quite high in freq. You're not gonna wanna monitor very loud in that space.

Do some web searching.. there is a good bit of info out there.

Here's a forum you could browse:
