So far we have been talking about the 'directional' nature of sound,
but this applies mainly to mid and high frequencies. Bass frequencies
need to be dealt with separately as they tend to radiate in all
directions and cause the whole room to resonate! In most untreated
rooms, the bass response is very inaccurate making it difficult to
produce punchy bass.
Bass tends to collect in the corners of the room so fitting some thick
sound absorbers (such as project traps and cubes) where 2 walls meet
and where the top of a wall meets the ceiling will help flatten out
the low end in your room. To learn more about low frequencies in your
room, research 'room modes'.
