Need help with studio monitor placement

Hello!

I been struggling to find good placement for my studio monitor setup and decided to ask help here.

My room has a big window, 3 doors and a wardrobe. I have acoustic curtains to block the window, bass traps in 2 corners and some acoustic panels in walls and doors.

What would be the best spot for the speakers in your opinion ?

WC to GS

Filling windows in with roxul safe n sound, covering with sound sheet from home depot (black looking sheet rock deal) then screw in blocks for diffusion onto 1/2 over it is great. Then the left over Roxul is great to make more wall frame pannels.

Measure it, you'll know it!

It's tricky since, you have door or windows everywhere....which they coincide to your first reflection points.

Maybe a scale/dimensions would help?

Yeah those have made things more complicated. The two doors on right wall have big acoustic panels.

My room dimensions are 3.8m x 4,5m and height 2,6m. Window is about 170 x 150cm and doors 70 x 200 cm.

Along the left wall if you can deal with losing the view.
