Hi all.

How true and effective is the mirror theory.

I heard that the quickest and easiest way, to determine where to place an acoustic panel, is like this.

Seat yourself in the listening position. While seated, ask some one to hold a mirror up against the wall and walk with it along all four walls, front, back, left and right. While seated, keep looking at the mirror as it is being moved along the walls.
Every time you see the reflection of one, or both, of your main monitors, that is where you should place an acoustic panel.
