My room is 16.7 x 13.4. My desk with my studio monitors is placed 7.4 feet within in the room. I sit between 9 and
10 feet within the room (6-7 feet from the back wall), which puts me a bit above the 38% rule.
Mock up pictures are below.
As far as my desk goes, I think this is the best seating position that I can get. I can't move the desk towards the front of the room because I start to
get some sort of interference that results in an irritating high pitched noise from my monitor.
I have two 1x12 guitar cabs. Ideally, I would stack them on top of each other and place it on the left side of my desk, directly next to the left side
of my left monitor. I'm a bit worried because if I stack them, they're only 2 inches below my monitor and I'm worried it might cause some unwanted reflections.The next ideal position would be to place the guitar cabs slightly off the back wall behind my mixing position, but I read Ethan's book and he advised that you shouldn't put studio equipment directly behind your mixing position. So that position seems to be out?
And then there's the drums. I can't imagine a decent spot for these. I can fit them anywhere in the room, but I can't imagine near the side walls to be a good idea. I think the best option is either at the front or at the back? Which is the lesser of two evils for the drums?
Last thing, I have a small bookshelf up against the wall directly behind me, it's only 4
inches high though. I can't imagine that would be harmful to my mixing. That won't be an issue will it?
