Another unconventional option you could try with listening chair near rear wall (Joachim Gerhard/Allen Perkins):

I tried that years ago after reading an article in Stereophile about Joachim Gerhard's Audio Physic speakers.

Here the differences with and without the ports open. I have 2 ports at different heights.

Purple = 2 ports closed
cyan = 1 port open and 1 port close
Dark blue = 2 ports open

For the GIK's panel, they solve the flutter echo very well.

without diffusers = I am an more an auditor
with diffusers = I am more in the music with the band. They give more a sence of bigger room.

Without diffusers the music becore difficult to listen when I put up the volume. Diffusers take the extra energy very good.

I am looking to buy 4xQ7A for the side and buy probably 8 alpha 4 and send the actual EPS diffusers on the ceiling.

I've been using a multi purpose room for years for my 2 channel setup (not easy to setup properly), now have the chance to convert a bedroom into a listening room. The bedroom is 11 1/2 feet by 10 1/4 feet, 9 ft. drywall walls with a wood floor.

Have not decided on equipment yet - thinking of a tube amp with a small footprint floor standing speaker. I plan to put the speakers on the long wall, add an area rug, also have some wall treatments I can install at the main reflection points.

Any other recommendations? Issues with this size room?

With the speakers pulled out from the wall, I'm not sure I can setup an equilateral triangle (or close), so this might be a near field setup. I'm sure I'll have to experiment once I get the equipment and setup the room.

Most philes prefer firing the speakers down the long side of the walls instead of the short side,
course the dimensions are so close that it wouldn't matter. on the long side you should get a bit bigger sound stage as the speakers would be apart a bit more.
