Been a lurker for a while, but finally thinking about upgrading a set of Sierra 2's in a living room setup to the Song series, most likely either the straight 3 or 3 Beat. I have a set of HT2-TL's in my family room and couldn't be happier...or at least ignorance is bliss.
No space/want for a sub in this system
Speakers are cornered in the living room, opening up to a dining room/kitchen
Rear of one speaker will be close to a wall...within a foot
Currently using a NAD M10 to power the Sierra's
The Encores would be a little too imposing in this room, so I'm leaning towards the narrower 3/Beat.
Some questions I have:
How does the Be tweeter compare to the Raal?
If I go front-ported, will there be any issue with placement close to the rear wall?
Any concern powering these with my Nad M10?
Is there an option for a white woofer (feel like I've seen the Beats with this)?
I love the airiness of the Raal, but not opposed to trying something new since every setup in my house has the Raal. Configuration of the room will most likely change over time where they will eventually be placed along the wall instead of the corner, but for now this is how they'd be positioned.
Any feedback will be appreciated.
