I know many big city residents have issues with small rooms and speakers position, I want to know what is the ideal distance between left and right speakers and minimum listening distance from speakers (triangulate) .
Secondly how far should the speakers be placed from rear wall for back firing bass ports, in this regard I am also wondering many London apartments are very small so how do people manage to put floor-standing speakers or bookshelf with rear firing ports, I am also wondering why aren't many manufacturer not making closed cabinets speakers given the fact very few of which are made almost all got high ratings in WHF.
What are the pros and cons of closed cabinet vs. bass ports rear or front. I know lots of question but it will help lot of newbies on this forum. By the way question is for music listening and not home cinema[:D]
