All three, plus the depth obviously.

Sounds like a plan, you may have to wait a while though!

It's basically just shelf space as there won't be much elsewhere. It's a compromise (another) between getting the bass trapping in the corners but still leaving me a functional space.
So that back corner, for example, may just have a lamp in it or a box of bits or a grotbox etc. etc.
That’s called the defraction area :think: You’ve invented the combo absorption/refraction trap. You’ll make a million marketing those! :headbang:

I did think about saying that it's for additional wedges to be added to tune the room, but actually i just need somewhere to put stuff. :)

Well progress this weekend has been handicapped by a cracked rib and a hangover but, after a bit of a setback this morning, I am declaring the bass traps finished and installed.
Couple of final bits of touching up when the rest is done but otherwise we're good.
Next weekend we get into the more serious joinery to mount the absorber panels.

I've always found that having a drink ultimately makes an injury feel worse :(

Indeed, but sometimes it seems like a good idea at the time.

Cracked rib pain take a few days to fully develop before you are at the "can't move or breathe at all without hurting" point.

Yers, done them before a few times. Get a bad one and it's one of the most painful things you can break.
Fortunately this one is one of the upper ribs and off to one side so there's less movement when breathing.
I just need to make sure no-one makes me laugh...

Ow... sorry to hear about the injury Drew. I cracked a rib in the USA years ago when I got broadsided participating in a 'fun' go-karting event organised by the company I worked for. I had to fly back the following day and that's a 10+ hour flight I won't forget in a hurry.

Wishing you a speedy recovery (and your DIY project is looking splendid!)
