Making a Terrible room work from an acoustic point

Guys, I finally got hold of a tape measure. I'm in a room that's 8'6"x10'9" with an 8 ft ceilings. The door is at one of the back corners so I dont have access to putting a panel in that corner. Thus far I have (what I could save from New ORleans)
6 4" pieces of 703, and 6, 2" pieces of 703

I'm thinking of placing 4" panels from corner to ceiling in 3 corners with a small piece of 4" (2x2" panels covered in GOM) over the door corner.

I'm thinking 2 2" panels at each of the side walls and 2 on the ceiling. Beyond this I'm at a loss for ideas and welcome whatever comments you guys have

sounds good. don't feel you have to cover the whole ceiling and side walls with 703, just those spots which reflect sound directly from the speakers back to the mix position. another likely first reflection point will be parts of the front wall (behind the speakers).

you may also want to do something to the back wall, not necessarily absorption, could be diffusion, like a set of bookshelves with irregularly spaced books/CDs and other stuff on them. something to break up the reflection.

then again, you may find you want as much absorption as you can get -- this is likely to be a personal taste thing. probably the louder you monitor, the more absorption you will want.
