Let me help for those who can't access facebook due to firewall restrictions.







I'm curious as to how those side surrounds come across being so close to your listening area? Do you have to drop their levels significantly to keep them from overpowering your frontLR/rear surrounds?

That's ready to assemble. Bush or Sauder. Held up amazingly well, actually.

YPAO mostly corrects for that. I think I may have manually lowered the left side surround speaker a bit, as it's so close to my ear.
