We have a smallish house now, so I shrunk things a bit and use the bedroom for my main system.





I just rearranged in this tight space. Sub #2 is now to the rear.

This way I keep the living room more or less clear...

haven't posted in here in a while. since that time i've gone full vintage (well, almost) and this is my set up at this time:



left to right:

klh model 6 speakers
b&w 703 speakers
apple tv
panasonic dmp-bdt-330 blu-ray player (for those times i can't wrestle the remote out of the kids' hands )
marantz cd-60 mkii cd player
sony ps-x50 turntable
fisher ta600 tube receiver
marantz 2270 receiver
sony str-6065 receiver

rotating the units based on the music and on my mood. i have not used my marantz sr7007 or my rotel rsx-1067 since i brought home my first vintage receiver. it is amazing how some almost half century receivers can sound fuller and more satisfying than some of our newe gears but they do.

They're on the crates they came in. The stands hadn't arrived when I took that shot. Next week I hope to get some people together and put the speakers on their stands, and unpack & roll the sub into place.

Ooh... looked them up... I can $ee why they have a nice crate...

$hould the tweeter$ go on the inboard or outboard $ide?

Found their answer in the manual:

"Monitors with an asymmetric (offset) driver array should be positioned such that the
midrange driver and tweeter are inboard."

I'll be back later...

Yep. Right now they're at the perfect listening level while standing up, which is good for parties where everyone's mingling. It's going to take at least two people to get each one on a stand (150 lb. ea.), and then move the stands (with spikes!) around to my satisfaction. Trying not to ruin the hardwood floor in the process.

Oh been there done that lots, scratched floors

I used these with my spiked speakers, place one under each spike, this will allow you to move the speakers VERY easy till you are setup the way you want, then remove each pad one at a time.

LOL...yeah...until I opened them and found absolutely nothing protecting the delicate drivers from dust, debris or heavyset warehouse guys who might use the crates as a bench. That was unnerving to see, but they seem fine.

That's a question that I've been asking. Some have the mid/high inboard, others have them outboard. Take a look:

Lone Mountain Audio (Mike Wells)

Alchemy Mastering (Matt Colton)

Everyone seems to have their preference, and nobody has given me a definitive answer either way. So I'm going to try 'em both ways and see which one I prefer. (The first pic shows the same stands that I have, BTW.)

Looked at the manual:

"Monitors with an asymmetric (offset) driver array should be positioned such that the
midrange driver and tweeter are inboard."

So, that's the mfg recommendation, anyway.

It also says to start with them 2 meters from the wall behind...

I'll be back later...

Thanks for the tip! I have bought a set of Super Sliders by Waxman so I can move them around and make fine adjustments before I put the spikes in. The Sound Anchors stands leave a protruding nut even with the spikes removed, so I could use another option!

Sound Anchors have optional floor protectors for the spikes, BTW. I have a similar set that came with my Paradigms that I can use.

Yep, and that's what I did. But after seeing other setups, and hearing other engineers' rationales for putting them the other way I feel I should at least try it. This is a temporary location for me. Great for testing. By the time I have them moved into their permanent home I hope to have all the details sorted.

Yep. That's partly why I have the crates where they are. When I put the stands in front of the crates it'll be easier to move them down onto the stands, and it'll have the stands the right distance from the wall. When I roll out the cases (incl. the road case that's acting as a TV stand), I'll have room to put some Sonex and other room treatments up, and drop the sub right in the middle.

Thanks all for your input! Keep i coming, please!
