Hello Guys. I'm a proud owner of a pair of Forte III since around 6 months. Do any of you have experience with the positioning of the Forte III in order to obtain its best sound? I know there are several factors to consider, but in general terms (apart from what the Instruction Manual says) and based on your own experiences. What can you comment? I am still experimenting, but so far, separated from the back wall about 50 centimeters and about 45 centimeters from the side walls, it has given me excellent results, especially in the acoustic image and response at low frequencies. Do you use "speaker toe"?
So I'm having some really weird issues in my new house with my new Cornwall IIIs. I have a game room in my new place with high vaulted ceilings (room is about 15x25). Linn Sondek LP12 (Adikt), Naim 110 and NAC42. When I first hooked up the CWs, I had them about 6-12" off the wall and about 6 feet apart on carpet. Bass was absent. I pushed them against the wall and checked the cables to make sure phase was good. The bass improved, but still isn't where it should be. As the speakers are brand new, I decided to put some hours on them before really making any more changes. Last night, I'm changing the AC return vent in the back of the room near the ceiling. On top of the ladder (about 10 feet off the ground), the bass was near perfect. So strange. I don't know what happened to get it directed up there, but somehow the sweet spot is in the back corner of my ceiling. I came off the ladder: bass was gone. Moved my couch to the back of the room. No difference. So, here is my plan: 1) replace current audio cable with new Audioquest bi-wire cables, 2) move CWs to the corners of the room, 3) add spikes(?). I'd love to hear your thoughts.
