    Do I recall correctly that it's a good thing to add some damping material behind each front speaker as well as behind the center and/or TV?

    I know we should on the side walls at the point of first reflection.

    Jeff, you are correct, however the choice of material and the amount of damping or absorption is important. I can't say I know much about this subject but I'm learning. A great source for this info is on another site I peruse.
    www.audioasylum.com Check out the tweaks section and perform a search under "wall treatments". There is a plethora of info regarding this topic and there are some very nice DIY projects there also. Good luck![​IMG]
