I have searched this forum for many days, and leaned a ton about how to sound treat my theater room. However, I still have not found a thread that explains to me how I can determine which frequency my theater room has too much of.

Basically my theater room suffers from a VERY BAD "slap echo" which at times makes it very difficult to hear the mid and high ranges. Is there a way I can verify the exact frequencies I need to absorb to get a flat response from my room?

If there are threads that I have not found yet, please reply with the link to the post. (I am not opposed to RTFM)

That’s usually indicative of a room with hard floors and walls, perhaps even lots of glass. Wall-to-wall carpet will usually solve the problem, or if not, adding heavy draperies to the windows.
