They're the greatest culprits for bass build up and require treatment in order to tame the low frequency peaks that every room has. That's why if you've ever built an effective RFC, you still need as many bass traps as you can get to even out the low frequency bumps that will inevitably occur. The good news is that the more bass traps you have, the less it matters where you place the traps. There are twelve angles in a rectangular room, and all of them are candidates for trapping.

The front low corners are usually the easiest to treat because no one walks there, and you don't lose any space as a result. The idea is to fill them with floor-to-ceiling bass traps.
