Questions for Mike (mlundy):

How do you position your speakers in your 11 x 13 room?
How far do you sit from the front of the speakers?
How far behind you is the rear wall?
Is the room treated?

I ask because we’re in the market for a new home, and there’s an excellent chance I’ll finally have a home office that is also suitable for a small (cozy) audio system where my wife won’t complain about OB speakers.

Michael,

I had them positioned along the short wall. 3ft into the room and about 6ft apart (The MTM Oticas are in their place right now). My recliner is at the rear of the room against the back wall when leaned back.  There is a double window behind the chair. This puts me about 8ft from the speakers.

I have some treatments in the room. A combination of absorption and diffraction behind the speakers, diffraction at the first reflection points on the side wall and absorption behind the chair in the window well.

I put the room treatment in for the Otticas. The Wedgies were not as particular.

I have also had the Wedgies set up along the long wall (haven't tried the Oticas this way). With this setup the the Wedgies were 3ft off the wall and about 8ft apart. The recliner was against the back wall when leaned back which put me about 6ft from the speakers. I liked the overall presentation better with the speakers along the long wall since I could spread them farther apart. Both soundstage and imaging were better.

Since you will be looking for another house, get one with a bigger room than this, especially if you plan on using it for an office also. 13x16 at least. 

When I get back from the Lone Star Audio Fest I will likely set the Oticas up along the long wall so I can spread them farther apart. This will put me closer to them than I would like but until I get the next remodel project done (making the room 13x15) I'll have to live with it.

Mike,

Thank you.

My goal is to find a home with a dedicated audio room and another room to serve as my office/small audio room. The  <hopefully> larger dedicated room would be for my Apollo speakers. If there’s no dedicated room, it’ll have to be a great room or family room in which WAF would play a major role (no OB in such a scenario).

I’ll eventually announce our new home.

Is it possible to change the setup from a mmtmm to a mtmww? Something similar to the ob7 plus but with servo subs?

No, that would change the response, impedance, and SPL level. And the acoustic centers are so close together due to the small diameter of the 3" drivers that the MMTMM works out great.

When you set them up complete with the subwoofers you get an MMTMM-SWSW on each side.
