FYI the span charts say a 2x6 can span ~20' with L240 given a 5psf dead load. But they have to be 12" OC and you need SS or #1 (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1) ...

Depending on how the horn aligns with your ear level, maybe you could just raise them up a bit? Doesn't sound like the frame is blocking much. Could even raise and tilt them if need be.

Yeah I concur that if you don't buy the longer dedicated rail you will always regret it. However, that's a beast to store and has limited use, so could you live with the regret?

I put my 8" monoprice in 3cf (~2.75 net) backer boxes and it smoothed them out somewhat. Definitely didn't hurt response. I posted graphs in the speaker forum.
