I have tried them on the long wall, terrible in my basement. short wall was much better but still, when i walk up and am 1 foot from the speaker in the center I have a ton of bass. anything back from them, nothing it seems to disappear. Right now I have them 9 or 10" from the wall 3 feet in. the room is 23.5 x 26. On the 26 foot wall, it just sounded bad. No bass, tinty, not dynamic at all. This happens to any speaker i put on that wall.
On the 23.3 wall, I have tried from 6 feet apart on down. So far, the better place seems to be 3 feet in from the corner, 8" away from the back of the wall.
Now should they be flat against the back wall? I seem to remember they actually came with a wall brace at the time to attach them to a wall?
So when I walk up on them the bass is strong but as soon as I move back away 2 feet or more, the bass starts to disappear. this happens no matter where I put them unless I corner load them!
Not that It matters, other equipment being used, McIntosh amp, jolida cd, adcom 565 preamp.
Thanks for the help!!!!!
BTW the 2.3's didn't seem as picky on the placement.... strange I know....
