The screen is awesome. Definitely recommend the Seymour XD if you're more than 8' from it. When I installed the screen I lowered the towers to just off the floor and have regretted it since. Voices don't line up with the video on screen like it did.

Hey brwsaw did you find the AT screen affected he 2ch soundstage in a bad way? Or more a high frequency db drop thing? I was hoping the basement setup would suit both uses.

Maybe an hour? Sometimes there are only so many locations or positional movements within a room that it doesn't take long. Even then, i can't say anything is perfect. I agree with bridgman though that the M60s were easier to place than the M22s but

The best sound stage I've had took several hours spread over 2 weeks. I wasn't in a hurry and wow. I've ruined it several times since, starting with the addition of an acoustically transparent screen. A rerun of the original placement is scheduled

Somehow I knew I would hear from you, and glad for it. I checked out those older axioms too. Hard to beat that price for a speaker that works even. I would be killed! Lol. Spending time doing this sort of thing has taught me the more I learn
