    Yep, that was me. :)

    I've got several coats of polyeurethane on them. Do you think this will still be a problem? :huh:

    Speaker positioning is always a series of trade offs. I would suspect you could get a deeper, more 3-D soundstage and probably better imaging with some breathing room, but as you already know, then the bass would change. And don't ignore the impact that has on the entire balance of the speaker. The important thing IMO is to experiment and not just plunk them down.

    Especially fun with heavy spiked speakers on carpet. :)

    I agree but there are certain guidelines which should get you close and then you can play with toe in the tighten stuff up too.

    Yeah, its very useful to have help. When Carl came by to visit, he helped setup my Gallo's and it made a massive difference.

    Corner loading is often an excellent location for speakers, especially in a small room.

    Ok, I added some new furniture and thought I would share.

    Here's the sub enclosure finally finished:

    Excellent workmanship. Just out of curiosity, why is the TV on the floor? I figured at the beginning of thread maybe you were just getting started. But it's been 3 years :).

    He's a bachelor. If he doesn't have it on the floor he loses his card. Maybe a milk crate?

    I use the wall for the projection screen and don't want anything blocking it. My final plan is to have the tv in the center and the center speaker sitting on a shelf just above it. I'm building the shelf right now.

    Here's a quick picture of how it looks with both screens on. I'll try to take a better picture with a better movie in the future. But this gives you an idea of why my small TV is on the floor.
