Test room acoustics

I just put some 705 panels up around my living room. They're straddling all corners including where ceiling meets walls, and where walls meet walls.. Also some ceiling and wall stuff. Either way I'm curious how to test out my room to know if I'm done treating it..... But how??

The following is a video on how to download, set up and run a test with REW.

Keep in mind that the true test is how well your mixes translate in the real world, so don't get overly hung up on the graphs. Needless to say the following with help you understand the decay time of the low end. That and ETC is key to understand how well your room is treated.
