I listen to alot of classic rock and heavy metal and Geezer and Geddy's bass lines get buried with the rp280. Even Audyssey notices this and boosts the mids, but ide prefer to listen to music without it. My thought is that the forte, being a 3 way will have clearer mids (better instrument seperation?) and the wide mid horn will provide a wider sweet spot. Listening by myself I usually sit in the middle of the couch but when listening with my wife we both sit on the ends of the couch. I heard some cornwalls last week and even up against the front wall, the sweet spot was very wide. You're thoughts? My Forte's fit the bill for classic rock and heavy metal, they dig deep when required and depending on the recording, the seperation is definitely not lacking. I feel that the seperation is best with the speakers facing forward (no toe in) and about 12" from the rear wall for optimal bass. I have listed to cornwalls and I agree with the sweet spot being very wide, not well suited for classic rock/heavy metal. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
