You guys have any interest in a master speaker/room setup thread?

Might be useful for advanced members who wish to nudge the ball a few yards further.

I would, but I am already pretty active in some other advanced level groups and forums talking about acoustical design, home theater design, sound energy measurement, etc (some are invite only which means there is a certain level of expectation on number of useful posts and comments). Not sure that I have time to start another. I could chime in from time to time though.

That brings up a really good point! A pool of resources.

We should try to keep the thread to succinct strategies and cite references when possible.

Keep the “noise” to a minimum. Lol. (Loudspeaker pun) Anecdotal is valuable if pictures and specific procedures are included. Brevity is appreciated. Quality over quantity. wink

Anticipating good (structured, presented and cited) input from all interested! smile

Fire away. How do you all set up your speakers?

Anyone into this besides Tex?

It will be some work to do it properly is all. If the thread dies after a super post it will be a kick to the nuts. Lol.

I'm not planning on contributing. I'm not an "advanced member". I'm just a member...with a member...and sometimes I am referred to as a member. I was just planning on reading it and learning.

I consider anyone that has a seat they consider the “mlp” an advanced member.

If you are geeky enough to use abbreviations like me you are in the club. laugh

Bring the info. As far as I'm aware it's extremely easy just time consuming.

Play the track Ballad of the Runaway Horse by Jennifer Warnes loudly. Just first 20 seconds on loop any format is sufficient.
Put speakers against chosen wall listen then begin to move speakers in 1 or 2 centimeter increments listening each movement.
As you go you will find multiple spots where each note is distinguishable. Mark them.

Pick desired or most practical spot and the fun begins.
From here 1mm increments back and forth listening for sound stage and centering. To far you'll lose it, not enough and so on. Supposedly most will find only about half a centimeter for a chosen location.

Some rooms cannot possibly get perfect imaging due to design constraints. This technique should get you damn close or to the most ideal for a given room situation.
