How big is that room? It looks really tiny.. if it's *really* small, bass trapping is probably going to be fruitless.

IMO the big thing would be to try to get your speakers set in a symetrical way in the room -

- get that right monitor away from the side wall; get both monitors away from the back wall...

- then decouple the speakers from your desk somehow; the cinder block thing..

- then try to eliminate your closest reflective surfaces; that's a pretty big, flat desk, put some fluffy cloth over it..

Otherwise, in a tiny room you'd have to figure out exactly which frequency in the bass is dominant through analysis, and then build a custom-dimensioned Helmholtz resonator to stop it.

/ funny, I have old memory sticks laying on my desk as well?
