Do you think the 20 hz difference would be noticeable with the RS-42s? I think I'd like to stick to RS because I like to wall mount. And they look good, even if in the location they lose some of their ability.

One last question I guess is, are the 42s worth it over the 41s.
That frequency range assumes 3 foot listening distance, and you are within that. You are going to set them at 80hz, and I can assure you that at 2 feet away and Audyseey calibrated you'll be fine with the RB41. If you want maximum dispersion go with the RS42.

I was talking about RS41 not RB. RB41 is def not in the discussion. Technically the RS41 only goes down to 85 so I wouldn't want to set that at 80hz.

left is 2 feet but right is 7 feet away.

Again if you go with the RS series they need some room to breath, like a 2 foot radius. With your setup being so near field I'd do RB41s on pinpoint mounts.

CHHunter went for rear placement because he has no left wall (I'm guessing), otherwise side placement is ideal.
I do have a left wall but it was just to far away and that's a walkway to the front door. Just didn't seem right having a surround way over on the side. Someday a dedicated room will be in order. Until then we make due with what we have

I think your making the right choice but only you can decide. I think it'll sound fine. Trust me my room does not make my system shine to it's true capabilities and I'm just fine with that. Little tweaks and upgrades are baby steps. The other day my wife and I went out and got drapes for that 10 ft front window I have. Guess what it helped on the reflections and echo.

haha, nice. Yes lots of soft surfaces sure seem to help. My room has many soft surfaces and it sounds really good to me.

Maybe I should carpet my walls.

One last question I guess is, are the 42s worth it over the 41s.

Due to the distance from you to the speakers being just 2 feet, I'd go with the RB 41 II, or the RS 41 II.


Why?


You're closer than the testing for frequency response is done. Also due to this proximity, you're not going to enjoy the full measure of a much larger speaker. You'll not miss out on any extension with the speaker crossed at 80 hz. Especially if you have at least a half decent sub. Don't worry about the test tone sound from Audyssey. At the end of the day we are talking about surrounds, test material and real world material is going to have far less relation than with mains and centers.


I might lean towards the RS 41 II, because it might behave slightly better with flush mounting and justify the added cost. It'll look better too.


I wouldn't do the RB 51 for anyone, not matter what, if it's flush mounted. It's also got a rear port with a lot of air coming out of it. You're also a bit too close, but we could alleviate that concern with a mount to point it off axis which also gives the rear port breathing room. Since you don't want to get mounts, this one is a non-starter.


I wouldn't do the RS 42 II because you're too close, and you have furniture that's too close. You also won't be enjoying the capabilities of this speaker, thus the added money you spend, because it's so close.

pics of the area where they would be mounted may help too.
There is no other place than 2 ft from your ear to mount?

I say if he is happy with his Polks as surrounds he should spend that money some other place, especially since he seems to be waiting to see how Atmos pans out...He mentioned budgeting earlier in the thread and with that in mind, I suggest he keeps what he has (since he's ecstatic already} and the money he is thinking on spending could be better spent at a latter time or for source material. My 2 cents.

I measured where I sit. I under estimated. It's still pretty close. And I always have to turn the left SR down by about 3db to get a more "blended" sound. I am sitting 4-5 feet from the left wall and 6 feet from the right. The actual driver of the left speaker my left ear is about 4.5 feet from it. I think you are right CandT. Even at this distance I think going with the RS-41 is fine. I'd just been indecisive because I've been going through a lot of stress lately.

Here is the picture with the polk T-15s currently there. The left side is the one surrounded by couches and walls.

Keep the Poks and consider what I said earlier, especially if you tried the other speakers and didn't notice the detail you were looking for. Fwiw, there is not going to be a ton of difference in any of the speakers you are looking at, imo.
