I'm also going to have to mount it near the corner wall to save space, but concerned about the indirect sound reflection and reduced clarity. I see that your mounting arrangment has a some vertical distance from the ceiling with little to no walls around it for indirect reflections - guessing this is a good set-up.
Is the SuperSat3 toed-in and angle down toward the listening area? Recall Sandy recommending a toe-in for the large Triton 2 speakers and the manual says the tweeter to be at ear height for accurate timbre. Having the speaker high up means off axis listening.
Can't tell from the pics if there is a large horizontal distance between the front L/R speaker. Just curious because I'm going to end up with a large horizontal distance between L/R fronts and wondered if this improves or makes the sound quality worse.
Since you've got a different centre speaker compared to the front L/R, do you hear any difference when watching movies?
1. its good for me. i am no audiofile but this setup has generally given good results.
2. yes they are toed in and angled down directly at the middle of my couch
3. yes. the speakers are appr 20 feet from each other and 15 feet from the listening position. Personally i think its sounds great in here. I demo'd tron legacy on bluray after I set the new speakers up and was blown away.
4. unfortunately there is a noticeable difference in the quality of the center vs L/R speakers. Sandy private messaged me and said the center was as important or more as the left and rights because in movies most dialogue comes from there. I plan on purchasing a SuperSat 50C as my center next month.
