Is it necessary to have your corner traps touching the walls ?

Is it necessary to have your corner traps touching the walls ?

I've got 2 6" traps straddling the front corners of my room, but each one doesn't quite touch one wall due to 1/2" thick power cables running to the outlets in the corners. Does this render the traps less effective, or should I not worry about it?

thanks

It makes absolutely no difference, at least not in any practical sense.

There is a theory that if the 2 sides are touching the wall it will create a "spring" action with the panel. Honestly though I don't think you would hear the difference. Just keep them as close to the side wall as possible.
