I'm thinking of building a pair of stands for NX Studios (that i haven't built yet) with integrated woofers like a pair of M-165s.
In the setup I plan to use, a couch will block the bottom of the stands on one of the speakers (not wife negotiable).
So here's my question, is there any way I could side mount a pair of M-165s in a stand? If I power them with a good sub plate amp, presumably I can adjust the phase to compensate for side mounting.
Follow up question, if I could do this would it make sense to make the stand an "L" shape so they are partially open baffle? Put another way, the drivers would face the side walls and the inside wall of the stands would be open.
I would still use a sub, but I'm thinking it might be good to fill in the midrange.
Same question if I use it for KEF LS50s, making it like an open baffle KEF Blade?
