OK, granted..these are stock recommended settings from Polk as to how the speakers should be placed.
Thats all real nice and dandy, but real life rooms, probably will not give you the space. You have to deal with what you have, and place them, the best you can..period. These are very generalized settings VERY room dependent. This is not, well it has to be this or it doesn't work crap. I've had these speakers for 30 years in alot of different rooms. You have to deal with the room itself, and have a general setup that you start with. The one thing i will say, is if you try and put them too far apart..the the SDA "effect", seem' s to go down the hill. There just is NOT a 100% right setting for these speakers..you have to deal with the room, and what you have in it.....
Here's a thought,
if you had less that 3 feet of space between the wall and the speaker, could you not just make some bass trap like sound absorber and place it on the side walls?
The reason for the side wall distance is to allow the sound waves to travel properly, so no, you don't want anything to absorb the sound.
