Improving sound in rehearsal room (rock band).

Hello all!

Our rock band are lucky enough to have our own rehearsal room with the size: 7 meter length, 5 meter width and 2.8 meter height. Ceiling and 3 walls of wood, and one made of concrete. The floor is also concrete, but with thick fabric tiles covering it. One wooden door, and lots of windows on one of the long walls.

So far we have covered the one 5 meter wall behind the drummer with sound absorbers (premade, only 5 cm thick), Bass Traps in the corners and heavy curtains over the windows. the other short wall of concrete is naked, and we are in the process of building 6 absorber panels (20 cm x 95 cm x 57 cm) for it.

Alright, dampening the room is relatively easy - but we don't want to only quiet it all down - we want to improve what's left of sound reflections. So I read about diffusers... But almost all information is about "how to use in control room"... Are they useless in a live band rehearsal room? Should we build some other constructions to improve sound?
