Room layout, what to do?

    Okay, let me try to post here because I am going to need help since the layout leaves one relection wall and one not. It is what it is for this house.

    Here is a Pic of floor plan and the other is my temporary furniture and layout of front soundstage. I am hoping to get a more ideal situation of mounting tv and getting a narrower 2x2 cabinet with center on top so I can fit a sub possibly. However open to suggestions. Again once situated i will run new wires in-wall for rears.

    Questions

    1. Acoustic treatments for reflections? I have two minitraps from years ago. Mount behind speakers on front wall? Seems like one side wall yes but what about other void that goes into computer area?
    2. Where to place sub? Haven't bought but suggestions welcome to placement and what to cover volume of room?
    3. I have only openings. Not doors. Is this an issue?

    Bookshelf I fixed to wall. Won't be moving because computer area has other items rps20170815_104622.jpg rps20170816_204205.jpg

    Thanks. I know this crossed more than acoustics

    Acoustic treatment for the speaker near the wall to help center the imaging. This will reduce the 1st point reflections. The speaker with no wall will not have the 1st reflections matching. So this will be a big help on your sound and room. Next would be the bass trap.

    ^Good advice.

    I'd treat the wall directly behind the right front speaker as well as the wall to its right.

    Thanks for the replies. I have been off the forum for a bit and now just seeing it. You all are confirming my thoughts. I have tow minitraps and i guess just get panels for right wall
