I would like to know if there's anything wrong with my setup or my expectations.
I was expecting that a sound source should appear to be located vertically more or less near a line that you get when you connect the two tweeters (stereo setup). Strangely I get the impression of sound emenating from significantly ABOVE this line. Just to give you an estimate I think this effect leads to a 20 to 30 degrees angle (from my ears to the sound source vs. from my ears to the horizontal line that connects the tweeters) above what I expected. Now I am wondering if this is either correct or if there's any problem with speakers, room treatment, my ears, etc.
B&W 803D (tweeter height is about 6 inches above ear level). Distance from ears to tweeters is 10 feet. Room size is 17 feet (front/rear), 15 feet (left/right), 7 feet (ceiling). Speakers are 3 feet away from front & side (front of tweeter). The listening position is 5 feet from the back wall.
Floor is covered with carpet, sides with Thinsulate (acoustic felt). First reflection points at the sides and on the ceiling are covered with 2 inches of Basotect (acoustic foam) and in each front corner is a triangular Basotect column.
Any ideas? I tried tilting the speakers forward, but this didn't have any noticable effect.
Thanks for your feedback,
