New room plans

Hello folks, I just want some input/advice on my new studio plans. I'm in college so I can't do everything at once but hopefully it wont take too long.

My idea is to design the room for mixing. And then for everything else I track at home (vox, acoustic, electric & bass...), I'll set up a bunch of free-standing traps to enclose the source. (I track drums in a church sanctuary so I'm fine there).

The red traps will be 2in thick 703 and the gray bass traps will be 4in thick 703. I also plan to hang 2-3 traps above the listener.

As for rear diffusion, I just put 4 skyline diffusors (I've built 2 already) but I'm thinking about building one large QRD panel diffusor.

The current floor in the room is carpet but I'm planning to lay down locking wood laminate (is there anything specific I should lay under the floor other than a moisture barrier?)

Thanks in advance,
Sam

Hey, great sketches thumbsup

Looks like you did your homework. Should be a great room once you get it
together.

Thanks. I've had my setup (different layout) in the same room for a while now. But now I'm going to put some money into it and make it acoustically ligit.
