I have used some acoustic plates to reduce the first reflection from the main speakers. I used the mirror method to find the placement of those. I have not yet done anything with the second reflection because I'm not sure if it would be good for the sound. I will try to figure out more of the necessary treatment by using the REW.

I have tested with some big temporary Base traps in the back corners of the room. I can't say that I heard any difference.

Very nice system, have you tried placing a thick throw rug on the floor between the media unit and where you sit? it might help with the sound as well.

I just tried a normal size carpet. I couldn´t hear a difference. How thick should it be you think to really hear a difference?
