Hey, Sean. I didn't see this prior to responding. If you don't mind, I'll post my reply below:
The room is a 3m cube? If so, you're going to have a very strong resonance at that wavelength, and another at 6m and then no modal support for the rest of the bass range. To be honest, as far as bass is concerned, this is not just 'far from ideal' but it's actually the opposite of ideal save for the fact that you have a room and speakers which is better than nothing.
You have a few options: 1. pick a new room, 2. forget about bass accuracy and concentrate on mid-to-high treatment, 3. make dramatic changes to the layout and usability and stuff that place full of 20cm rigid panels by covering every surface.
I encourage you to post on the public board so my advice can be ratified but, as far as I know, this is accurate advice.
Also, NO NEED FOR BOLD AND CAPS! We might be old but we aren't blind

Thanks for the reply and sorry about the caps no offence meant.
Yes my room is crap but its all I got at the moment. I will concentrate on mid to high treatment and see can I do even a bit better than I am currently getting.in future I will post public, I wasn't sure what the best way to go here was tbh but appreciate you coming back to me regardless.
Since you are obviously trying to do the best with what you have, I suggest you try to find a way to get symmetry into your set up. It won't be perfect but try to get closer than what you have now. If you put your speakers on the wall where the head of the bed is and move the bed closer to the center, that might help... or just get rid of the bed and sleep on the floor, (no, I'm not joking). Your speakers probably could be placed closer to the center (not so close to the walls). You should experiment and take measurements with REW. You may find the least bad speaker/listening position that way. If you have more questions, make sure you read the stickies first...then fire away.
Cubic rooms are the worst except for spherical rooms, but extreme amounts absorption will help even the worst rooms.
