If you've got some monitors or cans you think need some kind of "burning in," here's a potentially useful web player that keeps looping pink noise, sweeps, yada yada that you can leave on. http://www.jlabaudio.com/burn.php

This guy Bob McCarthy has some good articles on acoustics and system calibration, etc.

Filing this here keeps references in one folder: Researchers design a new structure that absorbs all sound
This is the news story: http://phys.org/news/2014-05-absorbs.html
This is the original report: http://www.nature.com/srep/2014/140414/srep04674/full/srep04674.html

I've read thru this once and can't say I have a good working knowledge of it yet; the technical details are pretty advanced, but the basic configuration of the experiment gives some inspiration for how to apply this in a sound studio.

They have 1/2 meter tall compressed foam sheets arrayed vertically out from a rigdid reflective panel that are effective in the ~700Hz-3kHz range. This could work well on the ceiling or in an infinitely large anechoic chamber.

I'm wondering if this could be collapsed at an angle, with a stairstepped back-board. And for broader frequency range, stagger the height of the foam or even use giant saw-tooth shaped panels. It would look kinda like those tweeter diffusers with parallel plates. They didn't describe the process for compressing the foam sheets. It could possibly be done with panels of rock/mineral wool.

It's a technical paper and I don't know all the math, but reading through it all is interesting and leads to some educational thought on the nature of sound waves and how they interact with things.
