Yep... How wide should my fronts be placed apart for a good flow from left to right? Should they be a couple of feet away from the TV of should they be right next to the TV?
I'd start by finding the correct distance out from the "Front Wall" to place your speakers (the wall behind your speakers). IMO, 3 to 3-1/2 ft is usually ideal to get good imaging. Bass response will increase the closer to the front wall you push them, but at the expense of a muddier, less defined soundstage. Find the balance that suits you.That bring up a question I've been meaning to ask......
Do you measure distance from the wall to the back of the speaker cabinet? Or is it from the wall to the drivers?
I ask because my ADSL1290's have a fairly deep cabinet (sealed eclosure) and I'm never sure how the suggestions such as yours apply.
PS - Aaron,
Really do some experimenting as suggested. Sometimes small changes in position make a big difference in sound.
