Here's a link to a .pdf file that shows the dimensions of my home theater: Josh's Home Theater As you can see, there is a bar on one side of the theater, and a hallway leading to the rear. Since my floors are concrete, there's already a lot of reflection going on. I don't think the odd shape of the room really helps this much either. However, if I install thick curtains in the two places noted in the schematic, my room will be a 16x13 (1.23:1) rectangle. If the curtains are sufficiently thick, do you think this will be a worthwhile improvement? Other than an overall sound that's a little too live at the moment due to the reflections, my biggest problem is that I can't hear the surround speakers on my DVD's. I just bought my speakers yesterday, and the L/R surrounds are ADP-170's. They're dipole, and that should create a diffuse, non-localized rear...but I can hardly hear it. Will curtains possibly help this out?
