Lapierre - please see my comments to you over on my system thread where I answered your questions.
Having looked at your acoustical treatment diagram again, and being a GIK customer, I thoug I'd pass along some thoughts that hopefully you'll find valuable.
* the GIK 242 is too thin in my opinion to offer broadband attenuation, so I sold mine. Toole in his book recommends that the minimum thickness be 4" or better yet 6" so that it works down to the transition zone frequency which for most small sized domestic rooms is between 300-600Hz. You don't want to attenuate just the highest frequencies as it will then be acting as a low pass filter and throwing off the spectral balance of those reflections and reflections of those reflections. I would suggest diffusion in the middle of the front wall as you will be using absorption on the back wall.
* the GIK Tri-Traps while shaped as a triangle to fit neatly into a corner will work better by reaching down to lower frequencies if you rotate it 180 degrees so that there is a larger airspace between the wall and the trap. Will you be stacking 2 into each corner as 1 isn't very effective? Better still is to put 2 of them together to create a vertical oriented rectangle with another pair of them on top, so 4 per corner.
* can you put Monster traps on the back wall which are thicker than the 244's?
* can you move your chair and speakers out from the back wall and front wall respectively from 33 - 38%?
* the GIK D1s will diffuse from a bit below 1kHz due to the well depth. Have you considered building a DIY diffuser to work across broader frequencies?
Hope this is of some value . . .
