How to install acoustic treatment panels in an asymmetric room?

    I need to put up several block-type and shutter-type foam acoustic
    panels in my new control room--and this has to look nice.
    Unfortunately, the shape of the wall is no rectangle thanks to poor
    carpentry. The floorboard is pretty straight across, AFAIK, but the
    ceiling starts off straight, right to left, then slopes upwards a
    little over half-way across.

    This is exaggerating the slope wildly, but this is basically it...there
    are also doors on both sides with their hinges also belying any kind of
    optical trick I use on the installation, both the hinges are 68" from
    the floor.

    This could be a blessing in disguise, of sorts, since parallel surfaces in a
    studio are less than an optimal situation.. Have you *listened* to what's
    happening in the room yet? Your treatments may be very different and perhaps
    far less expensive than would be necessary if you were trying to treat a
    symmetrical rectangular box.
