Optimism is the devil here, IMO.

Or that flush mounting isnt necessary? It's indeed a large compromise not to, but with enough of the right treatment it obviously can be done without flush mounting. MRAD2 is proof of that.
You dont need 900mm traps. 400mm is fine for side walls. My corners are slightly thicker.. The problems in my room ar not really the low low end anyway. More of a high bass or mid range problem really
