You might want to think about some panels on the wall opposite the speakers - that's another 'mirror point'.

Bass traps work best in corners, triple-corner are the best, but you'll have to find the compromise that works for you and the room.
The height of the singers mouth won't make much difference a low frequencies.
What you've drawn up should make a significant difference to the room and give you much more accurate monitoring.

Okay, so you suggest me to set them on the floor? It is difficult to cover the bottom and top triple corner, I actually dont know how to do this in a practical way, Would you have suggestions?

I have located the monitors with the mirror trick, and pointed the location at the side wall. Would you suggest to attach those panels(1,80) to the wall or is setting them on the floor sufficient?

If you scroll about halfway down this page: https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/view ... &start=120 you'll see how I made my bass traps, as you can see it's a very simple and lightweight frame to raise half the treatment to the top corner. Something like this might work for you.

I would expect putting them on the floor will be fine (unless you have a really, really high seating position), just make sure they're secured for safety's sake.
