Hello everybody,

I have just a couple observations.

There is a third method (not just redirection or absorption) to deal with room reflections: a diffusion/absorption hybrid.

More about that is described here:

Diffuser/absorber hybrid is also described in:
Acoustic Absorbers and Diffusers: Theory, Design and Application 3rd Edition book written by Trevor Cox and Peter D’Antonio



For the stereo image, every single detail in actual loudspeaker design is extremely important, not just room.

E.g. we tried different speakers, at the same (best) position, in the same room designed following MyRoom Acoustic Design Principle, and stereo image differences between the different brand of speakers were between "night and day".

I wish that everything is easy, but unfortunately, it is not... from my experience.
