Hey all! Considering Axioms for my up and coming basement home theater, which will be 20 x 11.5 when complete. First row will be about 9-10 feet back from the screen. I want to build a stage and incorporate my mains and center. I am interested in the M-22s, but concerned about how far I have to keep from the wall due to the rear port. What kind of placement do other users feel is a good compromise for these?
Thanks!

hmm, not really. I did think about going up to the M50's though, since they are front ported.. but thought that might be overkill for a relatively small area that will be %100 movies

Maybe 1-2 inches.
The closer to a wall, the greater bass response that occurs, but in general, the port distance doesn't do much unless the port is covered due to proximity.
My M60s stand about 8 inches from the back wall. In our old place, they were about 6 inches out (20.32 cm and 15.24 cm for those on the modern and more convenient metric scale).

Overkill! You mean my M80s in my small room. No way!

The M50s also have a rear port.
