I can't help with calculations, but imo trial and error will work even better than calculations. I would first use the 'first reflections' via mirrors on the walls/ceiling technigue to establish the basic absorbtion required.. Next experiment by 'blocking' output from various angles from the front/sides of your speakers using some pieces of fairly heavy carpet, perhaps 3 x 6 ft, hung parallel to the speakers any way you can: a stepladder will work. This will lead you forward in knowledge of whatever problems you are facing. Also, avoid having the unfurnished room I often observe in member systems- in your case overstuffed/heavy couches & chairs will work wonders. Experiment with placements the carpet technique suggests. Good luck & have fun. Use the best quality recordies of pieces you really like as you'll enjoy the benefits; making the efforts fun. Pete.
