or it could be where you are sitting in relationship to the depth of the room, you say 10ft back, how much room is behind you? If you move back further, if you can, does the sound change. You could just be sitting in a null, or half way position which would not be good.

I moved the speakers around some more. Moving them out to 10' of separation (equilateral triangle) didn't help much. I moved them forward about 1 1/2' in front and 2' wide of the TV and that helped but I think that was more of a near field effect. I also moved myself around the listening area with little effect. I'm thinking the hard, high gloss drop ceiling may be the primary culprit.

I'm still planning to try the M60s in the family room and try the family room's good sounding bookshelf speakers in the problem room.

Any way to hang a big net or blanket full of pillows below the drop cieling long enough to test if it helps the problem?

That's a good idea. I'll try sticking some towels up between the ceiling tiles to act as temporary acoustic panel.

Monkeys would work too. But, they are hard to catch and forced to stay in one place for long.
