Alright, i guess i misunderstood what you were writing in the website, i thought you were saying that sawdust worked as a basstrap, but it really just works to damp out low end in the corners, gotcha.
So as a revised design i was thinking about building out an almost octagonal room, except the walls would not be of equal length. Think square with corners cut off, but not a the same angles front and rear. That would alleviate the boost that you would see in corners, and if i get the angles right, reflections will not bounce back to the source... What do you think?
Yap that's the way to go for it.. the more asymmetrical the room is, the better If possible, turn the walls a bit so that it looks like if the walls were "crashing down on you". This does wonders for keeping the low-end reflections from bouncing back and forth in the room. We didn't have enough effort on building the room that way so we gotta try out to damp the low-end with use of bass traps, let's see how it turns up in the future
