Yes, you want the absorber where the maximum number of air particles are moving... but that's at the point of lowest pressure, not highest.
if you think about it, if the air particles are moving they aren't putting up any resistance so low pressure... but if the particles can't move you have high pressure...
... rather than how fast those particles are moving.
How fast they are moving is determined purely by the frequency of the sound waves -- high frequencies require them to move quickly (say 10,000 times a second) whereas low frequencies require them to move more slowly (say 100 times a second).
Even though a porous absorber works by velocity, its best placement is determined by pressure.
No, it's best placement is definitely where the air particle velocity is greatest, which coincides with the point where the air pressure is lowest.
