RB5 placement..


Recommended Posts

doobie, the problem is that the horn has a 90 degree by 60 degree displacement when set upright. Your off axis responses will suffer. You will be sending more information to the ceiling and floor instead of a wider horizontal dispersion. If your listening position is confinded to a very small area, such as a love seat, then the difference will be minimal depending on room structure. Also depending on room structure, you may experienced some problems with the sound bouncing off of the ceiling or floor (non-carpeted). The best way to find out is to try it and listen to some music that is full of some clear high frequencies. Make sure you test out all of the listening positions that will be used. BTW if you are planning on putting them in a cabinet make sure the rear port has plenty of room to vent. At least 8 to 10 inches away from the wall or the back of the cabinet. Good luck!


I am leaving for three days, but I am sure there will be plenty of others that can help you. A lot of them may have some further insight and ideas. You should probably give some more information, such as: room size, ceiling height, main use music/home theater, how far will the speakers be off of the floor, and anything else that pertains to your situation.
