Hey all, Loving my currently 3.1 monitor setup, soon to be 5.1. Right now I've got two Monitor 30s as fronts and a CS1 center, and will be picking up the Monitor 60s as my fronts and moving the Monitor 30s to surround duties. Right now I've got all the speakers wall mounted as seen in this pic:
My only real gripe is how the speakers are so close to the walls and are rear ported, creating a sort of boomy bass effect. I was considering flipping the center channel over on the metal arms that it is on and that would probably aim the port away from the wall and at an angle instead. BUT, my real concern here, is the 30s that are going to be mounted about 6ft up on the rear walls as surrounds. Any suggestions on how to either aim the port away from the wall in such a way that it would make a difference. I thought of maybe unscrewing the rear rubber spacers on the bottom and putting a longer screw in the wall for it to hang off. This I'm thinking should move the back away from the wall more and aim the port at an upward angle and at the same time, point the speaker down a bit. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Also, will a CS2 match well with the M60s? I'm not too thrilled with the CS1 right now for movies. Seems it struggles to keep up at higher volumes. Thanks again for any advice!
