    Default Q about FXi3 set up?

    So here are a couple pics of my set up. I have the fxi3's set up according to the label on the back of each speaker but was wondering if i should have the woofers facing each other or leave them how they are for the best sound. just looking for suggestions from anyone who has these speakers set up on a back wall like my set up. thanks for your help.

    I am running mine backwards with the woofers aiming at my ears.

    +1 on running them backwards.

    My setup is exactly the same as your with the rears being right behind the couch. My RTi8's are really bright so I didn't want to have any midrange wasted by pointing them away from me.

    Play around with the setup and see which way you like more.

    The back speakers are way too close to your head.

    i know but its all i have to work with for placement. the house i live in is really open and i was affraid that i would lose all sound with a different placement b/c each room leads into another. just working with what i have guys and in my next house i will havea room designed for home theater. thanks for the input. i am running my fxi3 backwards as well b/c the sound is much better. great speakers.
