I would agree not to absorb any more than needed if it is for music as much or more than home theater. That said, while breaking/scattering waves is good, trying to do that under 200-250Hz requires physical sizes while are basically unusable in a home room.

As an example, our diffusers are 6" thick. They will perform down to approx 300Hz. Imagine trying to do 100Hz. Most people can't/won't give up multiple feet to try do diffuse bass. Plus diffusion does not address the excessive decay time component of the problem which is more prevalent in the bottom end.

Bass only absorbers like live and damped membrane types can function very well below a couple hundred Hz and do essentially zero above to leave all the 'life' in the room while controlling the bottom end.
