For those of you that have taken a look at the pics... should I even bother with acoustic panels and corner traps if I have a big a$$ window?? don't want to waste time making them if they won't help.

Windows are one of the most difficult things to deal with. Unless you want to completely block it off and cover the area with a combination of foam and something like a sheet of plywood, you are going to have sound issues. Even with perfectly cut out foam and playwood covering it, you will have a less than ideal situation AND you won't have a window to use. I am stumped. Sorry.

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of... guess I'll just go with the getting some acoustic curtains and put them on a track to see if that will help. Thanks.

"Acoustical Curtains" won't help if you are getting rattles from the windows, and won't hold any low end sound in the room. It will help a little with the reflectiveness of the room to help reduce some echo. Acoustical curtains need to be pretty thick, but not so thick or tight of a weave that they actually block 100% of the sound. That would turn the curtain into a diffuser of sorts and scatter the sound around. You want something that will let some of the sound filter through the fabric so that it can get trapped in between a couple layers (or inner/outer layers of the same) fabric.

Just know that whatever you do will probably be better than doing nothing. While you might not get stellar results, as long as you get results that you can live with that is OK too.

Good luck!
