Seating distance is about 10 feet and so are the distances from one left speaker to the right speaker
They are not too far apart, that big red border against the grey wall was the same color scheme of my bedroom in the 80's. I also had matching grey black and red drapes and bed spread
Thanks for the input. Just wanted to make sure they weren't too far apart. I actually got the paint scheme from some magazine. Maybe the 80's are back :wink: I really like it. Should I have the RTI's close to the wall? They're about a foot away from the wall and that's probably the most I can do.
Try toeing them in more and see if they sound better to you or not.
Yes, you will want to re-run it after any changes
Don't look too far apart to me. Toe in would be my suggestion as well.
What type of stand is your center elevated on? I like that!
Haven't tired the toe in yet because the whole family is home but will do as soon as the house is empty. As far as the stand, it's actually off a Samsung tv. Tv is mounted in the living room so I just used it as a stand. I thought it looked good too, thanks @poolgod69
haha good idea! I've done the same with my Pany Plasma TV Stand for my LSIM center speaker! Added the sticky rubber feet to the stand so I don't damage the speaker and its holding strong up on top of my 82" DLP on a shelf.
Also the speakers look fine. Just make sure that the tweeter is ear level with the seating position and with the toe in you want the speakers pointed directly at you if your seating position is center of the tv. So you want a Triangle shape between the speakers and the seating position.
I wish I could push my front speakers out further then they are as there right next to the screen on both sides. I've read ideally you want like atleast 3 feet of space between the center speaker and the fronts for good sound seperation.
Ok guys so I did the toe in and I feel that the sound stage is directed more at me. Of course I sit in the sweet spot but now the sound just meshes well together in the center. Thanks
mine are just a far apart. I prefer it for HT. For music they should be closer together but its not a huge deal. You may want to get a wider tv stand. This way the speakers wont look so far out
Depends on what you use them for, on the whole I don't think 10' is too far it's just the farther apart you go the smaller or farther out the musical sweet spot imo. Toe in helps though. I'd just play around with it til' you find the distance that gives you the sound you prefer. If you're mostly using for HT though then probably not as big a deal. Playing with speaker placement can have a bigger effect than some think so I would advise experimenting.
