Yes, I have the 4' doorway next to the one speaker, and another 4' doorway on the left rear sidewall. I was concerned that the image would be unbalanced, but it doesn't seem to be a problem, and the sound is more open than when I had the speakers at the closed end of the room, with the doorways at the back.
I do not use room correction, but I run sweeps from the listening position with REW, and average multiple measurements just to get an idea. Here's a quick and dirty one I did when I first got the F208, and compared to my simple stand mounts without the subwoofers. F208 is the red trace. The room modes make the bass measurement problematical, but it shows that the F208 are much fuller in the low midrange. The stand mount's had issues with uncompensated baffle step, which added to a leaner sound over all, and peaky'ness in the treble made them sound bright. It's not all bad, they sound lively and crisp, but it's just a little too much at times. The F208s are much more refined sounding, as well as neutral and accurate in comparison.Edited by denydog - 5/11/13 at 12:29pm
