Sure they all want their speakers 2-3 feet from any wall, even Def Tech recommends that.
But the reality is (and I see all the time here with owner's photos) very few can do this.
I'm going to have a small room for HT 13x14. I don't want speakers 2 or 3 feet from the walls. If I did I'd have room for one chair in the middle of the room
I'm leaning heavily toward a pair of Def Tech 8040s for my fronts but still using a sub near field in the back of the sofa for LFE.
