@gadgtfreek , how do you like your current Klipsch speakers? IIRC, you had the rf7ii, then the psa 210. How are your current RPs compared to those you had? The RPs are much cheaper right? I can feel how your single fv15 pressurizes your tiny room. Nice and clean set up.

I have not. Next time Chad B comes into cal both my OLEDs, I will have him use REW and see what is going on.

Thanks!

Yeah, when I went from the 7II's and 64II to the PSA monitors, it was because the horns were starting to get to me. I guess old age. The PSA's are so much more warm, I loved them. When I wanted to setup this 5.1, the PSA 210C is too large, so I went with the new Reference Premiere line, reading that they were mellow. I can say for a fact they are 180 degrees from harsh, and sound great. Real happy with the choice, plus now I have a true 5.1 system.

That's what I did to get my Center Ultra up off the bottom shelf closer to the LR speaker height. The height was set to just raise the bottom of the TV enough to be even with the top of the Center speaker. The distance between the end legs is wide enough to allow the Center to slid back close to the TV and about even with the front edge of the stand.

After I had it assembled I decided to add an angle on the inside edges to somewhat resemble the angle on the Ultra speakers. I used 3/4 oak and black spray paint.

It can be a bit difficult to see with all the black on black. If I wasn't so lazy I'd set up some better lighting for a clearer picture

Nice woodworking - I wish I could do that, but I would not use a closed back. Now you have a mild version of the "cupping your hands around your mouth while talking" effect. It's like putting a speaker in a cabinet or bookshelf.

I think just some bracing along the frame would be enough, and would keep it "open".

Not a problem with a closed-back speaker (is it?) and front flush.

There is a 1.7" port behind each woofer. From the back of the speaker it is about 8" to the riser. There is open vertical space in front of and behind the screen so is not sitting in a tight box.The gap on either side of the speaker is ~4" to the riser legs. The gap from the back edge of the speaker is ~3" to the center of the curved TV screen. The front is even with the edge of the stand but 2" higher on angled foam wedges, points right at my head.

It sounds just fine to me

Speakers emanate sound in all directions - and there are reflections abound, just like standing and yelling at the mouth of a cave. He does have the face in the clear, which isn't as bad as center speakers put at the back of a cabinet.

Their dispersion pattern moves to point sources at lower frequencies, but as you move higher driver directivity comes to play, along with baffle effects and all that jazz, so they radiate more and more to the front. But "emit" is debatable; again, a rear port is an emitter, but otherwise the back of the cabinet is not (or should not be) a direct emitter.
