Hello,

I have problems with bass in my room. My room has a hexagon shape, size 10m.
It almost doesn't exist in my listening position. I tried to move the setup around but this didn't helped.
As I go backwards I hear more and more bass, most of it gathers in the end of the room at the top.
I understand that I need to put some bass traps, but not sure which type and how many?

Thanks

There's a very recent discussion on that very topic, here: viewtopic.php?f=74&t=531038

If you search the forum, there may be older threads about the same thing.

I read them, but before I'm going to spend $$$ on this I need to understand if this actually going to fix this.
I'm looking at GIK acoustics panels, so for example if I'm going to hang on the rear wall two 244 bass traps 60/120cm, is it going to fix the null or I'll need more traps? Just trying to understand how much I'll have to spend on this.
Thanks.

I'm actually checking the option to buy a set of monitors with a small sub. Moving the sub to the right position is much easier then to move the whole setup around. Then probably I'll add some broadband panels to get rid of the reverb in the room. Finally I'll checkout this calibration thing, probably this come already with the monitors and the sub.
