Live room issues

I have a simple question, has anyone had to deal with having a relatively "live" room and if so, what speakers did you find gave you the best sound? I have done what room treatments my wife would let me get away with but it's still a tad bit live. Help??
Live is a good thing. Just as long as you got your first reflection points covered you may be just fine.
I have a floor rug on the wall directly behind my listening position and some drapes on the side walls, as well as a DIY bass trap in a corner. The room is 12' x 18' x 16' with the ceiling sloping down to around 12 feet.

Try tilting your speakers back a little. It should warm up the sound. Also, the rug on the wall it too small.
