Default Re: Basic Room Acoustics - Need advice - Please help

The sound is great except for one thing, when I cup my hands behind my ears while I am listening in the sweet spot the sounds comes alive even more. The harmonics and air seem to be taken to a higher level. I can't listen with my hands cupped behind my ears the whole time, does this effect have anything to do with no sound reflecting off the rear of me? Am i crazy? Please advise.
It sounds to me like you may have a lot of absorbing material in the room as well.

I'd have to see a picture to even have any idea of how to help you.
