I need studio treatment help

im using a 10.3 ft x 11.6 ft room for general tracking and mixing purposes. monitors and various low level hard surfaces are around under 32" with two 6 ft tall rack units.

The things im curious are if it would be better to utilize the long wall principle and put the two rack units to the rear of the room with a casing built around them....this would yield reflections and actually running my sound down a short wall or same principle with the two rack no encasement directly turning the listening area into a heart shape. either way im focusing on having a triangle between listening position and monitors. im using yamaha hs10m's. what is the maximum and minimum width of the spread of the speakers. it will need to be a two chair sitting arrangement as well.

32inch shelf arrangment |

yes this is crude but the general arrangement that can run with either wall against the back. two door one wall 3 ft left 2 ft right.

yes nto ideal but a mobile setup temporary

Hahaha...well, "A" for effort.

Your room is close to square, so it's not going to make a huge difference which way you orient yourself, but you really should try to orient so that you're facing the 10'3" wall. After that, try to get your head to the 38% point and start tweaking from there.

Use the code tags. Precede the ASCII art with the word code in [] brackets, then add /code in the same [] brackets at the end. This proves it works:

ASCII                                     art!
