    At the present I'm living in a basement with tile floors, and I'm using my bedspread to tame some of those frequencies that would otherwise be flying all over the place.
    It works quite well, so I'm curious as to what ghetto-methods some of you others might be using...

    Before I moved to covered Owens Corning panels I had a couple of rugs I hung on the walls.

    You can always tack carpets to the ceiling ...

    Those are memory foam and do a right nice job of deadening hard reflections. Also fun to point to when people stop over ... "don't forget to wipe your feet!" ...

    Also, if you don't have any damp or mildew issues to deal with, I highly recommend fiberglass drapes like I used on the back wall here. Those are "room darkening" so they're thick material with a foam backing and make real decent traps. I had a killer standing wave at around 160hz that's now well controlled with those.
