I've found that good litter practices have helped with my boxes. I have one litter box in my home office which is quite small- I was doing what I call "inexperienced scooping" which included not putting enough litter in the pan and scraping up clumps. The smell was horrible until I googled litter techniques- now I put more litter so that the pee doesn't sit on the bottom of the pain and, if it still does, I tilt the pan up and smack the bottom to get those clumps to release before I try and scoop it.
Trying different litters might help as well- we switched to a multi-cat litter when we still only had one cat and I noticed a big difference. I can't stand scented litter because I think it accentuates the smell, so I'd stay away from that stuff.
I don't know anything about ionizers but hopefully that helps!
