So yep! Build the bass traps! And the other treatment too...

Thanks for the advice Stuart. I was hoping to go the easy way out of building the bass traps after building the acoustic panels but I just have to commit to the project and get it done.

Another question I have - is it worth buying a Galaxy Audio Live Sound Monitor (CM130) to help with the acoustic treatment process?

Since this is just a hobby for me, I don't want to spend a lot of time and money to get it "perfect". I just want to take some steps to make some improvements. I guess I'm asking for the best bang for the buck or where the principle of diminishing returns kicks in for most hobby home studios.
