Again, Bryan will know for sure. I think ear level, center of trap. A thought did occur to me however (I hope everyone will chime in on this). I'm thinking the rear wall is the most important place for diffusion. Only in that it is the primary source of the bounce back reflections. Am I correct in thinking we should do the mirror test on the back wall? You would have to turn around in the chair @ the MLP and slide the mirror form side to side until you could see the main speakers. Place diffusion panels at those points & absorption panels around them + the corners. Is this what everybody does? This should scatter most everything @ the MLP.
Nick from GIK was the one to suggest bass traps at mlp. I think I'm going to leave them as is. I moved the couch away from the wall some.

Re: What happened to the bass?

That couch is too close to the wall for diffusion...you need to fact check this, but I'm fairly sure you need about 4 feet between couch and wall for that

I moved it 6 inches away from wall. Can't do more as looks ugly. One side of the family room is open to kitchen. I'll leave the traps as is to sounds good

Oppps! I was thinking the couch was his second row of seating with the MLP in front of that.
