I plan to mount my speakers very close to the front wall (push SBIR up in frequency) and surround them by (1.) corner bass traps and (2.) 18cm (7") broadband absorbers placed in the middle of the front wall. Technically the speakers will not be flush-mounted (some air still between them and the absorbers), and above and below the speakers there will be bare wall only.

The danger in DIY flush mount is that your monitors and listening position are fixed. Theres no moving around to find optimal positions, so you better design the rest of the room around this. It takes careful planning, but its worth it IMO
