I have a smallish room of about 12 x 13. On the short end (12') of the room, I am planning to put a 8 feet glass desk that is 24 inches wide and 1 feet away from the wall - so the front edge of the desk is 36 inches form the wall. I use a 50" LCD screen as a monitor sitting on the EDGE of the desk near the wall - so it is about 12" from the wall. Yes, lots of reflection and not ideal for audio set up - I know...
1. I assume that if I leave speakers at the rear edge of the table along the wall, the desk will reflect the sound waves and smear the sound badly. Am I correct?
2. However, if I put the speaker on the front edge of the desk towards the listener so that the speaker woofer and tweeter is on the front edge of the table - or even slightly beyond the desks, would the audio be substantially cleaner as the tweeter and woofer audio projected forward would not be reflected off the glass desk?
Or is individual speaker stands still going to be a whole lot better than option 2?
The 8 feet long desk would be very ideal for this room's setup in part because they are electronically adjustable for height so when I am working and changing from sitting to standing position, the desk, monitor and speakers can all be raised to suit the working position.
Thanks in advance for any advice. Thanks!
