One more possible thing to consider -- I found that after treating first reflection points the system seemed to be more tolerant of less-good recordings. If you're oriented on the long wall then the side FRPs are probably OK but think about floor/c

Those are great renders. I initially thought they were photographs, but I was struggling to identify the tower speakers in the first pic. For the two windows, could you make some kind of shutters with strong hinges and heavy material that did a good

Jump to new posts On-wall speakers for large room by Philippos @ 09/20/14 04:34 PM

I am considering on-wall speaker options for a farm house living room, 4x8x3,5 meters dimension. There is no loft, you can see the wooden structure of the roof, so the volume of the room is larger than usual. Would 4 speakers connected to a Yamaha R-

Gotta agree with Mark and Chess. This is a great thread for someone else searching for logic in the endless variables when it comes to system response, speaker character and room treatment. Good read and thorough explanations. Thumbs up!

I think that Murph hit the nail on the head. I had the M80 speakers and found them deliciously smooth with some of my tracks but sounding rather hollow and missing with others. I had to with some music crank up the bass to +6 to get it closer to so

The crossover changes are the most important IMO -- if I had your system I would listen to music without the subs and start with an 80 Hz crossover & Small setting for movies. Next, if you haven't done so already it would be good to experiment

That's really great. Hoping my DSP/amp/preamp on order with LFR's will have that user-upgrade capability.

Yes, as other replies have pointed out, at least part of the excessive bass heaviness which you're experiencing may be due to possibly having the M100s and the sub "doubling" the bass. If you have the M100s set "Large", the crosso

At the risk of coming across the wrong way, if I had the M100's I wouldn't be using subs (most of the time).

Similar to above: M2s or M22s with sub. Otherwise, M3s. Or if you like extra bass, M3s AND a sub! Buy good mounts and good screws and if in doubt, put them into a stud and you won't have any issue. In the least use wall plugs if going into drywall.

Steve, the M22s actually have a small edge in bass extension over the M3s(the enclosure is tuned a few Hz lower), but the M3s give an impression of more bass because of a hump in response in the mid/upper bass, as Murph described. My preference is th

These look nice! Though, I am partial to the aluminum myself. I have the ADA-1000 (love it!) and the aluminum front plate. I was glad to read elsewhere that aluminum will continue to be available for those that want it.

If you have a sub and aren't planning on playing really loudly then M2s would also be really good.

The plan is to have the AxiomPlay module available as a user retrofit. It will likely be a small panel on the front that is removed and the AxiomPlay inserted.
