I have my setup like this currently due to limited space, and most of my listening is for recreational purpose. Any advise on what I can do here to help with my audio set up.

I can't see enough in your photo to offer much advice, but this will help with general layout:

How To Set Up A Room


This short article is mainly about home recording, but all the same principles apply to hi-fi and home theater acoustics too:

Acoustic Basics


As you'll read, acoustic considerations are more important than pretty much anything else.

If you are sitting in that chair between the 2 speakers, and they are facing said chair....you got some work to do.



We're gonna need more info/better pics.

That is what you call Near Field Listening! ;-)


It might be the best idea possible, depending on your preferences.

Having a reflecting corner directly behind you is about the worse position possible. That focuses all the reflected sound right back at your ears. Focusing (bad) is the opposite of diffusion (good).

The bass was too much even with the bass adjustment on the speaker, I decided to turn it around.

Maybe I just do not know enough to understand, but why are you stuck on such "near field" listening.

Space is one thing, but this is not to the point of rediculous for listening? For all that, I would probably just wear headphones.

You can try the seat with the back to the closet. The hanging clothes give some damping/diffusion behind you.


Another option is the back of the seat flat against the side wall. Most of the reflections bounce sideways.

I would put one speaker on the bed wall closest to the door and the other on the window wall close to the closet.


And think about something on the wall behind you to stop reflections.

This is an example of what us audiophiles try to get that perfect sound. Experimenting. Have fun.
