HP L3 Switch, SHoretel Voip and QOS/Prioritisation best practices

Im stuck on how best to achieve a reliable qos on our voice network.

HQ Overview:
Cisco Router (managed)
Cisco ASA 5505 (managed)
HP 2910al Poe L3 Switch (ours) - vlan1 - data & vlan20 - voice,            /         2x HP 1910s - vlan1 only
ingate siparator                                                                                       /           printers/computers
Shoretel kit, switches, director, etc..

My issue now is with regard to quality, so looking at deploying QOS.  I have added a prioritisation rule but not sure if the answer..
The phones are configured: 802.1q, tagging on, vlanid20.
Should i tag all vlan20 ports?  Currently all are untagged.  Phone direct in switch, not daisy chained.
Should i enabled voice on the vlan20 or is the rule sufficient?
vlan1 or primary, correct?

The current switch L3 config:

Your configuration should be fine.  If the phones and Shortel gear are connected to the same physical switch and running in the same VLAN untagged, QoS should not be needed at all on VLAN 20 and is only adding complexity you don't need.

Do your calls go in/out via PRI/s or VOIP trunks?  If VOIP, then you need to prioritize (QoS) at the WAN edge for traffic between your VOIP trunk provider and your Shoretel system.  (I think this would just be the siparotor, but I'd need some additional clarification about your config, like a drawing.)

others on here are saying we need qos regardless...

calls go over sip trunks.  yes we use a siperator.
flow:

internet - cisco router - cisco firewall - ingate and l3 hp switch - phones and shoretel kit

everything gatewaying through the switch.
