I just got my MMG C and MMG W's today. Unpacked them but haven't set them up. Probably won't be until the weekend. The center is bigger than I expected but should be fine and maybe even cover a...

Thanks for the advice. I agree about waiting. Having said that, I will be curious to see what a few hours with some calibration, and a few bucks with some DIY room treatment can bring to the table.

Thanks, Don for this thorough reply. I doubted that I would get much benefit from a diffuser right behind the center channel. I think an absorber is much more doable in that position. I am...

If my center is going to be (max) ~5-6 inches from the wall, would a diffuser help at that point? It's basically going to be sitting right next to the speaker. Depending on the sound, I may have to...

Thanks for the info. I guess what I'll do is get the room set up and then post some pictures. See if anyone has any recommendations as to what/where there needs to be room treatments.

Whats the minimum distance that diffusers bring benefit? I'm most concerned about my center channel because it's going to be wall mounted under my TV. I can only bring it out ~6-8in from the wall...

I agree with this. My MMGs were previously running off a Virtue One amp (tripath, ~87 wpc, 30amps on hand from battery source) and using a sub for a little extra oomph.

I just tried out my MMGs...

What are you using for damping behind the speakers? Did you DIY or buy from somewhere? I may need to do this once I get everything set up in my space. Thanks!

Hi Dlynch,

When do you pick up your 3.7i's? Have you decided on a center channel? And what are you doing for rears?

I'm also looking at MMG W's for a center solution if the MMG C doesn't work well with my system. Seems like a cool idea. My wife isn't as sold on the idea yet. We'll see how it goes.

Oops...misread your sig. Sounds great! I can see the advantage of separate spaces for music and HT if you've got the room. :-)

Thanks, DR!

Looking at your sig, it seems like your setup is the big brother of what I'm going to have. How big is your listening space?
