We've designed the layouts for literally thousands of audiophile's rooms. Here is a summary of many of the more common room layouts that we've encountered.

|Start by bass trapping the 4 corners of the room. The TubeTraps should be as close as possible to the wall, and touching the wall is perfectly okay. If there’s base moulding in the way, Traps can be as far as 1” from the wall. For nightclub or studio mixed music, fit TubeTraps tight into the corner. For classical orchestral music, pull the Traps out a few inches to let the bass be more reverberant.|
|After the corners have been bass trapped, additional TubeTraps are added to help launch the cleanest wave-front possible. This includes a center imaging stack plus side Traps at the wall, in line with the speakers.|
|For additional control, add a center stack on the back wall plus left and right arrays along the mid-sidewalls. This will help address secondary reflections give maximum musical detail and soundstage clarity.|
