I just moved my room around, but for many years I was stuck with my open baffles right up against the side walls(they were 7ft out from the front wall though). I always had lousy imaging and a soundstage that seemed to moved around. Once I finally treated the side walls, it was much, much improved.

Whatever you do, try to put something up that is more effective than just acoustic foam. The majority of foam that people use does not do much below 500hz. 4" of rigid fiberglass or B.L. spaced just a little bit off the wall will work well down to at least 100Hz.

I cant really comment of sound treatment needed as of yet. The speakers will be 4 feet from the sidewalls and Im not sure thats a negative. I think the wall immediately to the sides of the subs should get treated regardless. It all sounds so good right now that I just didnt think about treating anything.

Not broke dont fix?
