I just got a NX Otica kit and as I'm putting it all together in my head, I looked at my listening room and wondered about listening position from back wall for  GR OB speakers? I know these speakers need to be out in the room but is there also a recommended distance from the back wall to the listening position?  Thanks. Look forward to lots more questions!

Ron at New Record Day did a great video with tips and tricks that I think is well done and helpful: https://youtu.be/CyTkwkK8ON0

My room is too small for my chair to be more than a couple inches off the back wall. Being this close to the wall causes issues with reflections so I have absorption panels on the back to mitigate reflection issues. It works well.

Optimally there would be 4' to 6' behind the listening position with diffraction on the back wall. However, when optimum isn't possible there are other ways to deal with the situation.
