    Guys,

    How far are your Studio 100's placed from front and side walls?

    I've got Studio 100's and am moving in August to a new home with a smaller space for my rig. I think I may need to get my 100's closer to the corners than they are now (less than ideal) to make space for my screen on a smaller front wall. I may also buy a smaller screen.

    For those interested in the gory details, the new room is 12' w x 20' long with a 9' ceiling. Seating will start at about 11' back. My current screen is 8'w x 4.5'h (16:9). I may drop to 7' or even 6' wide. [​IMG] Them's the tradeoffs. At least I've got a good space to work with.

    Thanks in advance for your experience and suggestions,
    -Paul

    If you have to place them close to the wall, toeing them in can alleviate some of the problems that could arrise with reflection etc. The Studio's do a great job of sending the low frequencies stright ahead (so in the sides and back they aren't boomy) so I would assume toeing them in, while placed in the corner might not bee such a terrible thing if you have to do it.

    I have back of 100's about 18 inches from back wall and side about 2' side wall. Also have them toed in. At one point I had them about 1 ft from side wall and the bass sounded boomy.
