When we built our basement AV room, we used the wall and corner treatments by Kinetics Research. We got the custom color, fabric and design options to fit the room decor. I placed the speakers (Proac 3.8s) at the Cardas positions and two of the Kinetics panels were placed on the side walls at the first reflection points. I have no bass or midrange reflection problems and do not feel I need tube traps or diffusors. We also did not use elaborate wall de-couplers, although we looked into them. I am very satisfied with the room. The nice thing about it is that everything is portable to a new house if we move... we need only paint the new AV room to match the panels. We also saved the Kinetics order forms and our paint color codes for future use, if necessary. Good Luck!
