That type of thickness can do well below 100 Hz. It just has to be in the right place to impact frequency response. Maybe a layout of your room?

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

Here is the room layout.
As you can tell from the pervious pictures, the traps were in the front and back right corner.
My room is 13' wide and 15' 6" long (long side) or 12' 4" long (shortside)
My LP is 11' back from the front wall/window
Speaker are 5' from the front wall/window
Speakers are 5' 8" apart
in about 3' 7" from the side walls
My LP's closest wall is just over 4 feet away



I returned the Rigid insulation but I guess I could get them again. The only other place to put traps is the back Left corner which now that I think of it might be the best spot. The only problem is that is were my rear speakers are so I could only do 1 panel.

Re: Bass Trap Test... did this fail?

The higher null may well be from the speakers being out so far from the front wall.

The null around 50 isn't changing at all with treatment. Move your listening seat without moving anything else and see what that null does. It may well be seating position related.I would move forward.

The asymmetric nature of the rear of the room makes prediction pretty tough. It's just going to be somewhat trial and error.

Whatever you do, only change one thing at a time so you know what is doing what - good or bad.

That same day with the "Bass Traps" I did some test with changing the Speakers position. 4, 5, or 6feet from the front wall.

Whichever the green trace is looks best. Did you try moving your seat with the speakers in that location?
