I was wondering if anyone has any ideas about how to remedy a problem I am having with my Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1s. I am currently using them as computer speakers and am thus only about 3 feet away from them. My desk is about 2 feet from the wall of the room and the speakers are on stands behind the desk (with about 5 inches between the speakers and the wall because the Sierras are rear-ported).
I have never been all that impressed with the amount of bass from this arrangement. When I slide my chair back from the desk, so I am about 10 feet from the speakers, they sound INFINITELY better. Much, much more bass and the imaging is 1000x better. Though I understand there are some inherent limitations with near field listening positions, I was wondering if anyone had any placement ideas to at least counteract the lack of bass. I am probably sitting in a big bass null in the middle of the room, but I can't really figure how to make it better without putting the speakers on the opposite wall and having the desk arranged with my back to other wall.
Anyone with a great sounding desktop set up have any ideas?
