Two questions about traps/panel positioning!

First, what's the best way to hang bass traps in corners of a room without putting them on things to hold them up?

Second, I have stands for my acoustic panels at my early reflection points and a little behind that from the mix position alone the side walls. Is this ok? They are taller than ear level when sitting at the mix position so I figured having them in these stands would be ok, rather than hanging them a little higher.

Not sure how yours are made but you might be able to hang them like the following.

Should be find if you are covering the mirror spot.

Thanks! I think that'll work fine for my panels, I'll just have to install eye hooks on the back of them since these did not come with any, but should be easy enough.

Like always, GIK to the rescue. I should really just bookmark that page
