After â€˜wadingâ€™ through the measurement debate, almost giving up on this thread, I will post anyway. :)
Now that I have had a few weeks to play with my B4+ (I must say I am very impressed and pleased, maybe a bit giddy) sorry, back on track, turning the ports in different directions made a difference in both SPL and the sound itself in my HT. I have the B4+ in a corner (my room including openings to other rooms is about 6000 cf) I have turned the ports in all directions to see the effect, for me I like the ports firing to the wall (I must admit that I like the look of the ports facing forward), I have about 8â€ of stand off to the wall. In my case I get the most SPL out of that configuration, also sounds a bit better to the ear, then again I may just be deaf from all the reference level listening tests I was â€˜forcedâ€™ to do with my new toy. :) (I have moved this big bad boy around by myself, not the most recommended way, lift with you back.. er, I mean legs, or better get a few friends to move it for you while you sit and enjoy a beer. :) )
I think that once you get your B4+ it is playtime, see what works best for you. I donâ€™t think there is a right or wrong here, but it is something one needs to experiment with to get the desired results.
For the tuning plugs, I have played with using none, one, two, and even three, and it depends on what I am listening to and on what levels which way I like it better. For the most part I leave in one or two. For watching TV at normal sane levels I canâ€™t tell a difference by ear with any of tuning configurations, depending on the 2 channel music I listen to I canâ€™t tell either, however some good pipe organ music I like two or three ports plugged.
Just my opinion. This is subject to change as I play with my B4+ even more. :)
I only have one B4+ but I would think that side by side or stacking would be a good option for two.
