Once all the woofers are mounted - they have solid weight and do not tip over. Plus they are suppose to be sitting/standing somewhere in the corner of the room with very little traffic.
Close to the speakers will be a challenge as I have the LS 9 and LS center for front mains - does leave much space for anything else. I can place them next to the mains but it would seriously compromise the screen size for HT use. Any advantage of using side walls vs the back walls? One advantage for back wall is nobody goes in the area - that pretty much eliminates accidental tipping over by tipsy guests!!😁
3 feet away from back and side walls will be a huge challenge!!. Can I place them horizontally?
I will try them horizontally - and try to keep them close to the front mains.
Wish we'd known about this , the tops on those are smaller than the bases (.75" over hang vs 1.5" overhang) so they'll sit / lie cocked on the floor. Also, as we discussed prior to shipping, the bottom faces have overspray on them, you'll want to grab a small can of Duratex and re-roll them if you plan to leave them horizontal.
Sunil - It's been awhile and I'm not sure if your setup is the same...Dug out some pictures from one of the GTG's and it seems like the MFW's were placed just outside of the LS 9's. Any chance you could put the Trips there and put the Subs back further/behind the triples? Would keep the OB's further from the front wall. The subs might pick up some boost from being closer to the corners and you could dial them back a bit. Give the OB's more breathing room and sound better.
Yep. It's not a triple, but my OB sub doesn't lie flush on the floor and I painted the bottom of the base. Not a big deal, though. Generally, I think it sounds slightly better sitting up. There's something unique about woofers high in the air, and I'll bet triples are impressive in that regard. But, given space constraints, you gotta do what it takes.
