In my opinion, having the bass bins in contact and the mid and tweeter horns at ear level is best. In the above two examples it looks like you are trying to stack t LS and a LS bass bin. To me the best thing would be to stack one of the LaScalas on a bass bin and call it quits for that stack. If you need all 3 bins per channel, then the three bass bins side by side on the bottom, with the two regular LS either flanking or to one side or the other.

How are you planning to power them?

I just dont have the room to go 3 side by side. To the right in my avatar is the door (well half of it-ha ha) to the left I am getting 2 more Danley Th115s and will fill that in, under the raw birch LS is a 21" powered Cerwin vega sub... So altogether I will have 3 pair (getting the 3rd pair next week) of LS and 1 pair of split.. Im trying to find the best set up.

Right now powering 2 pair with 2- cerwin vega cv2800 bridged mono and speakers daisy chained. The other two will be with 2 crown xti 2000s the same way.

They can hold way more than a couple more LaScalas stacked on them.

Someone named Lifter wanting to stack speakers, funny ! :P

As long as you aren't after sound quality and just want sheer impact, that should be fine.

Critical listening? Ahem, no sir........
