Thanks for the reply mate.
Well I have the greatest volume control in the world mate, it will rival at least 90% of people who consider their process to be the best. Above my little studio is the bedroom of my 1 year old twins so I ensure you, my volume is extremely conservative lol.
Placement is always key. They are off the desk and on stands, the window is wall to wall so behind my speakers, which are cornered, are some heavy black out curtains. They are always open so the ruffles allow for some dispertian too.
What I am looking to do it to place some dispertian on the ceiling above where is sing, 2 x bass traps and a pull curtain to divide the room when singing. It's a terrible soon for placement. It has two doors, 1 huge window and an alcove so not many options.
New place will have either a log conversion or a dedicated annex outside the main house.
