Hi

Is there a rule-of-thumb about speaker placement? For example - in/near the corners adds more bass/low freq - in the open is more flat etc?

Just wondering whether messing around with speaker placement will solve my 'weight' issues with my system. (Speakers are Monitor Audio Silver 8i's by the way).

Cheers

There are a couple of rules that might help. Yes, placing the speakers close to a rear wall will boost the bass, although sometimes it can become boomy if the speaker is too close to the wall. It's certainly worth experimenting by moving the speakers backwards and forwards from the wall to see how it affects the sound.

If your speaker has rear ports and has to be close to a wall, you can fine-tune it by inserting foam bungs (or a pair of socks!) in the port to reduce bass boom. Honestly, it works!

Then there's the issue of toe-in. Some manufacturers such as Mission suggest their speakers should be positioned face-on to the listener, but we often find a little toe-in can aid the stereo image. Again, experimentation with your own speakers in your own room is the key.
