Slanted room treatment

Room treatment (slanted ceiling)

Absolute acoustics noob here. I've made kindergarten level picture, but you get the idea.

The grey surfaces are slants. Red things are absorbers. Does the placement make sense and are absorbers on slopes actually useful? Basstraps in corners are always good idea, right?
Listening position alternatively could be on shorter wall next to doors, no other options. Floor is 100% carpet so I guess that's good.

Please halp

Can you establish some form of symmetry in your room? Doesn't look like it...

Three absorbers won't do much.

Measure different positions with REW and post the results here. We'll take a look at it.

Yup, symmetry is impossible here I don't have any mic, so no REW either. This room isn't the best acoustic wise, I know. My goal is to make listening position bearable. I'm sure some absorbers would help, question is where to put them

Do you have another room you could use?

It has to be this one

Is mirror method good to find reflection spots in this case and does it apply to the wall behind me (slanted one) as well? Also, are absorbers on the wall right behind monitors a good idea?

In your case, the only thing you can do realistically is to make the room disappear with as much trapping as possible. Everything except the floor. Then, create a structure in the trapping that's as symmetric as possible.

Well, this isn't exactly heartwarming... The plan was to do some light treatment, I cannot transform this room into anechoic chamber, need to live there :D But I get it, this case is a harder one, thanks.

Measure it in a few spots. Maybe you're lucky and the structure lets bass through?
