RE: And Finally........

Oh, I remember what I wanted to ask you Cno...

 

How far behind the sofas are your rears?  I assume they are about head height whilst standing.  I have bookshelves as rears because dipoles weren't suitable in my old house. In my new place with a new sofa, the wall is about two feet back from my ears in my viewing position. I was thinking about moving to dipoles as I don't feel surrounded.  I can put them 1.5m-2m apart.  Can I get away with this you think?

Looking at the colour of the wall, I don't think you're suffering from a mid life crisis!  Smile

I really should stay away from this section of the forum as every time I see someone elses setup I end up feeling jealous as hell and find myself hunting for upgrades when I know I can't afford it :doh:

Helluva system cno, one to be proud of Dirol

They are sited in the bay window. The back wall cuts in at 90 deg for 1 ft, and then angles back at 45 deg (I think). The speakers are mounted on this angle....a sort of midway between a "side" and a "rear" speaker.

The bottom of the speaker is 56.5 ins from the ground, 8ft 6" apart and they are level with the back of the sofa.....being of a dipole design, the give a diffused sound, that satisfies my requirements. Their height also adds to the atmospheric effect.

I hate advising on this sort of thing for somebody else, but I suspect it would work (David of F.Harvey might give a better idea).

I refer to this room as "the womb", for obvious reasons....Maybe I'm going in the other direction, as the fetal position while playing OTT, seems the way to go.
