According to TechFox, a Technology Content Creator in Youtube says that there is a common misconception of Sound Absorption and Sound Proofing. The difference between the two is that soundproofing prevents the passage of sounds. It avoids the sound from leaving a room. While sound absorption is when sound waves are absorbed by a delicate surface and it takes up all the unwanted sound inside a room.

1. Positioning of your equipments
always remember, keep the speakers centered from their respective sidewalls if possible. if your left speaker is four feet from the left wall, make sure that the right speaker is also four feet from the right wall.
2. Look for the Reflection Points.
In a room, you may find 3 types of reflection points. The first reflection points are the sidewalls, floor, and ceiling. These are the parts where the sound usually bounce. These are the echoes that are loud and produce a sound obstruction from low-mids to high frequencies. Second is the bass issues. Bass traps are usually placed at the corner of the walls. One of the biggest reasons why there is a bass unevenness in a studio is the modes that cause the standing waves. It's hard to deal with bass issues. But with proper sound treatment, you will solve all the bass issues. Lastly, the late Reflection. Late reflection refers to the reverberation and flutter echo. It can be constrained by utilizing the right acoustic that is pretty much uniformly separated in the room.
