Don't know if I should install all of them at once or just a few at a time. If I did a few at a time I might be able to tell which ones do what.

Panels placed at the first reflection points should improve detail resolution. For example you'll probably hear consonants (in vocals) more clearly and system focus and imaging should noticeably tighten up. The traps will help smooth in room response below the Schroeder frequency as well as provide additional absorption. The room will take in a different ambient character. You'll likely notice that immediately, even without the system itself in operation.


Get 'em all up and report back as the stuff is intended to work as a system.
