Good evening,

I got the FMS16 Stands for my M22s. The height of the tweeter is 3', and my ear level is 3'8".

Is this all right? I am not very high, 5'11".

If the speakers are not high enough, how could I increase its height?

Thanks.

Are your ears somewhere around your armpits? This may be why you are encountering distortion problems.

How would that improve things? He's already told us his ears are by his armpits. I quote: "...my ear level is 3'8". Is this all right? I am not very high, 5'11".

WTF is your deal. His speakers are 3ft to tweeter his ears are 3'8" his head is above the tweeter when he is seated. Raise the speakers.

His ears are at 3'8" and he's 5'11" tall. Read his post!

I stand up when I listen to vinyl so I can hear the highs better.

All I'm sayin' is, with his ears by his armpits, he has bigger problems than the placement of his speakers. He needs some serious medical attention.

LOL:)

Sorry I didn't put it clearer.

I was talking about my ear height when sitting in a sofa.

FMS16 is supposed to be ear level high design. Not sure 8" difference would make much difference.

I would say you should experiment. The VP150 for example is sensitive to height. The M80v2 is far less sensitive.
