FWIW, I standardize by measuring from the center-face of the HF driver, since that is likely the most directional sound source in your loudspeaker system.
i go by his 83% triangle ratio of speaker width to chair
makes sense thanks
I settled at roughly the same distance between my speakers.
A true domestic hassle but, at that distance, I routinely had my mind blown by the fidelity.
My maggies are 1.5 inches thick.
Yes! I was thinking of him too but of course of my “old man brain” couldn’t remember his name.
the book that comes with the FR20 says to start with rear of speaker 4 feet from wall, tweeters no more than 8-10 feet apart…mine remain about 4 feet out, but I have dual subs…though the owners reference brochure has you starting 18 inches out…and equal distance from side walls…my set up was rather easy, though some weeks tweaking small distances and angles of toe in…
Maybe they’ll get thicker if you wet them. Like a sponge.
Ha ha…like lasagna pasta?
Make certain to have a roll or two of blue painter’s masking tape available as well, and yes the book is recommended, (skip the video).
I have my twin towers 6 feet from the wall. I am sure they will give even a deeper soundstage if I move them out more, but my wife told me not an inch more.
You would be wise to consider she is the neck that turns
Perhaps you could barter negotiate a favor for her in exchange
for a couple of extra feet…you might get fortunate!!
My tweeters are 6’6" from the wall and the bass is transmission line (30’ room, front ported transmission line). If the speakers are rear ported I have to believe that the back of the speaker is mainly what counts wrt bass.
To whom interested on this argument, I started a poll a few months ago:
If I’m not wrong my speakers (front tweeters) are 4.8 feet from the front wall
For maximum neutrality I start one third of the depth of the room measured from the plane of the woofer. Then position the listening chair one third from back wall. Fine tune from there. I usually end up with the listening position moved back closer to the back. Fractions of an inch can make big differences. I prefer to place the sub on back wall directly behind the listening position. You can fine tune this way to get almost any balance you want.
Speaker placement can vary, but a general guideline is around 60cm (2 feet) from the wall. However, it depends on your room and personal preference. Start there and adjust based on what sounds best to you.
