    I'm interested in getting a pair of RB-5II's to act as mains; however, I'm wondering about the impact of speaker placement on their sound.

    They will be sitting atop shelves and placed almost directly against the wall. I have very little, if any, room to move them away from the wall. Most of their use will be for Movies/TV in conjunction with a subwoofer (probably crossed over at 80Hz).

    Can anyone who has these speakers let me know if placing them so close to a wall will have much of an impact on how they sound?

    as with any ported speaker having them close to the rear wall WILL reinforce the bass which maybe be good or bad depending on your room
