All bass traps or mix of the traps and panels? Help!

I just have a quick question, I'm putting 4 bass traps behind my mixing desk, and one in each corner of the room. For the rest of the room, would it be better to just get more bass traps or would panels be better at that point? Basically what I'm wondering is if bass traps will do the same things as panels, just also catch lower frequencies.

If so, I'll just have around 10 bass traps in the room, and possibly a cloud panel (seeing as how my ceiling is flat and reflective)

If not I would probably have bass traps and 3-4 panels around the room on the walls.

Thanks for any input!

Also, any input on something like this:
Audimute Sound Absorption Sheets | Materials That Absorb Sound | Soundproofing Blankets - Audimute Soundproofing

I have two big sliding mirror closet doors (I know I know... horrible) and was thinking about buying these to have over them!

I was actually just thinking of using the acoustic sheets/blankets to cover the large mirrored closet I have and using panels/traps around the room (definitely in spots that are planned out and not randomly).

Can Bass Traps be used to both treat early reflection points and low freq?

Or would I be better off only using traps in the corners and using panels only for the reflection points?

Thank you so much for the help and I'm going to check out those links now!

Sure if they are totally broad band.

You do want bass traps in corners and if the panels for the early reflection points are 2" or thicker then they should be fine. I prefer to use 4" though for reflection points.
