It looks like these walls will reflect sound from the speakers right to your ears. This is bad, because the interference between the sound you get directly from the speakers and the sound you get off the walls will create comb-filtering and mess up your frequency response. This is exactly the same effect that happens in every room with ordinary walls, so nothing tragic. Address it by putting absorption on these surfaces, just at the spots where sound will reflect right from the speaker to your head. ("First reflection points.") Use a mirror to help find these spots: put the mirror on the surface, if you can see the speaker from the mix position, then that spot needs absorption.
This is a separate issue from your need for broadband (especially low freq) absorption.
