16" super chuncks?

Hello, I recently installed 24" super chuncks in the corners of my room. It made an awesome difference. So far, they only go up 4". I would like to extend them to the ceiling. My wife has asked me to make these a bit smaller so the room doesn't feel "closed in." Would 16" super chuncks still be a help in bass absorption? 12"? At what point do they become useless? Thanks for the help.

The smaller you make them, the less surface area and the less thickness - so, less absorption and it doesn't reach as low in frequency. Going taller will help with the surface area but not the low frequency extension.

Pardon my lack of knowledge, but what about a 12" x 12" square. Would that provide good bass absorption?

That would be OK. Decent surface area and decent thickness at least at the middle. I think you'll find though that a 12" square sticks out as far from the corner as the 17x17x24" triangle does. It just doesn't go as far along the wall.
