Just looking for a couple suggestions on speaker placement. I have moved them around some but it would be nice to have an educated starting point.


See attached image for layout and the challenge... I tried a couple online how-to's and it talks about golden rations. Not sure I can accomplish that with my current setup... Any other ideas besides a whole new arrangement?


I have 2-way speakers soon to be replaced with full range towers. I also recently hung acoustic tiles and that has helped in general.


Thanks for any input!

Diagram looks good. That's the way I'd set it up.


If you are lacking a bit of low end oomph, you may want to try and position the sub against the back and side wall rather than having it aim directly into the listening area.

Thanks for the feedback, lwein! I have been playing all weekend so far and taking the speakers out from the wall further has been enjoyable (better imaging and more engaging). I took them out another 1.5 feet, so 4' to the front of speaker now. Basically trying to get closer to the golden ratio and combining with a near field listening position.


So what does moving the speakers from the back wall suppose to do on paper? Also, what effect does my listening position to the back wall play?


So far the sub port is aiming into the back corner - rear ported downward firing. Is that what you recommend or face the port another direction? But speaking of boom - does a bass trap in the back corners help at all? All I have read places them in the front corners. I was thinking of converting a large walk-in closet into a bass-trap by swapping the door with an acoustic tile and lots of insulation inside.


I really appreciate your note, thanks again!
