Advice on bass traps/acoustic treatment

I have done and awful lot of reading on these forums and I am very impressed with the professionals who are offering their expert advice here. So I thought I would ask a few questions. First my Home studio dimensions and layout.



I have already completed constructing 6 24" x 48" panel frames for bass traps and acoustic panels and 4 x 24" triangles for the four larger corners.

My thought was as follows.

4 bass traps. 4" (two layers of either OC 703 or Roxul rockboard 60?). Straddling the corners with nothing behind?

2 Acoustic panels. 2" of either OC 703 or Roxul Rockboard 60?) on sides.

Triangles in each of the larger corners. How much thickness and of what material? Same as above?

Please offer advice on Insulation materials, placement, and on what panels to build and how many. (6 traps and 2 panels or 6 traps?). I can and will add acoustic foam where advised as well.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me.

Thanks to forums like these I was able to check out many designs for Bass traps, acoustic panels and triangular corner traps. I chose the best of what I saw and modified these to my own design complete with integrated RGB LED lighting.

Please have look at them on my YouTube channel here...

Feel free to comment.

Thanks to everyone for the great ideas.
