  1. I hope you did not sell off any equipment or perfectly good speakers at your famously low prices because of that wire.
  2. The screws appear to be #8 sheet-metal screws. The length will depend on the specific speaker. A problem with trying longer screws is that the dog-ear tabs are captive in the slotted and capped mounting bosses, but some designs have excess tab material that could be trimmed to fit the thicker ceiling. I don't have a picture of your exact speaker, I am just trying to help with ideas.
  3. I like the symmetry of your arrangement, but for the sake of diagnosis, have you tried playing your sub woofer tucked into the corner?
  4. Yes the mineral wool insulation does function properly as a bass trap while sealed in the bags. The plastic shrink wrap is not a barrier to the long wavelengths of the bass frequencies. It is actually recommended that bass traps should have a thin hard surface to reflect the high frequency energy, if you don't want a broadband absorber.
  5. The transistor inside the glass tube is an interesting design.
  6. The bass bouncing off the walls crosses paths with the direct bass arriving at your listening position and nullifies it. Same principle as noise cancelling headphones. I had a similar low frequency response problem because of the size and shape of my room. I fixed it by installing some bass traps. I bought some Rock-wool mineral fiber, sound and fire insulation, wrapped the bulky 15x24x48" bundle(s) in black fabric and placed them in the corners of the room. If you try this, save your receipts and leave the plastic wrap intact, in case you want to return the bundles of insulation because of how big they are. (Some people would buy more subwoofers, rather than fix the room modes with a large bundle of insulation.)
  7. That response graph looks very respectable. Using a High Pass (subsonic) Filter is a good idea.
  8. Some of the other rooms I have listened to music in, this past week.
  9. The Cary Audio SLI-80 tube amp combined with a pair of Klipsch Forte IIIs sounded excellent.
  10. Yes you can mix the new Klipsch speakers with your old speakers while you build up your surround sound system. The Klipsch speakers on your list above should work great with your nice new Marantz receiver.
  11. Some homes have that condition where the deep bass is strong in the rear upper corners of the room, but weak at the listening position.
