Sheldon, here's something odd we encountered last night in our speaker comparison within the baffle wall that I'm curious as to your opinion on.
The Mackie C200 sound/imaging didn't seem to change much (at all?) when we changed the speaker distance by .2 feet --- from 13' to 12.8' for instance. The C300z's imaging seemed to change pretty significantly with the same distance change. It's something I noticed and asked Stitch if it was unique to my ears, and he said no - he definately heard it too. Why would one speaker be significantly more affected by distance setting --- given similar speaker design?
Both speakers were set to 13' by the Audyssey setup process from the MLP, and the image seems to pull to the left a bit to me - like a foot or two to the left or so. In playing with my setup I determined that 12.8' assigned to the left speaker seemed to remedy that problem with the C300z and the image sounded centered.
On the C200, however, the .2 foot distance change didn't do much of anything noticeable at all?!?!?
