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.
