great, didnt expect that much improvement
i followed Glenns (GIK) advise from this thread the effect of record shelfs / diffusor or absorber
and just by walking around in the room i was floored by the fact how important rear-wall-trapping is :D
i did some sweeps yesterday and noticed 2 nasty 20dB nulls in the 70-100Hz area..
i have no ceiling cloud yet, so i dont know if posting measurements makes sense at this stage..

ill keep you posted with my actual layout and placement of traps n panels

I would not be surprised if you are not getting something from the ceiling and or side walls. Looks great though for the back wall!! Nice job!

Nice idea.

Are you pushing it all the way up against the wall?

its about 1-2" away from the wall, just what the floors sidebars and some cables need; but i can imagine its even more effective with a bigger airgap

Yes spacing it off the wall can only help.
