I don't know if this was directed at me. If it was, you've misunderstood my post. I fully intend to tweak every aspect of my sound system, however, due to the sheer size of my screen and speakers, I have very little wiggle room until I fabricate my own false wall. Given the suggestions for placement, I've done all I can do unless I a) Convert my subs to sealed enclosures b) Place my front soundstage behind the screen. Until I decide on those, I am pretty much stuck, so there's nowhere to go from here except to actually sit down and watch some content.
To ask for detailed suggestions and advice, which certain people are always happy to give in spades, while knowing at the time of asking that such suggestions would never be implemented or even seriously considered is very poor form IMO. If people routinely did this, then the givers of advice would soon give up giving advice and who could blame them?
Even sadder in some ways, the people who gratuitously ask for such advice, without ever intending to take it when given, are also experiencing systems that are bound to sound relatively poor. They may delude themselves that their systems "sound good" and, in the absence of any means of comparison, become used to sub-par sound, but they will never experience what their systems can truly sound like once optimised.
The suggestions to use acoustic science to calculate optimum speaker and subwoofer placements yield substantial benefits - far greater than the benefits of using electronic EQ alone - and best of all, it is a FREE upgrade. Having experienced the difference myself, I recommend that if someone is only going to use ONE method of optimising their sound, this is the one they choose. Even people like myself, who initially thought there were no alternative placement possibilities due to room layout, size etc, have proven to themselves (with expert guidance) that this is not necessarily the case. In my case, all that was required was to move the L and R speakers about 12 inches and one subwoofer about 36 inches. Not only is the sound better, but the room looks better aesthetically too! I won’t post the 'before' and 'after' graph again as surely everyone is bored with it by now, but it is objective confirmation of what my ears are hearing.
Not Keith - but I'm pretty certain (99.9%) that his comments were not directed at you - I imagine that when he wakes up and takes his breakfast he will confirm my comments.
