Vick's Pit Posted March 19, 2008 Share Posted March 19, 2008 Hi All, I recently sold my RF-82's to a friend and upgraded to 83's My friend has the 82's setup in his living room without a wall behind them. He does not have a choice to put them in front of a wall based on his room design. The room is roughly 25x17. There is not a sub or other speakers involved in this setup. The 82's are being powered by an Onkyo SR804 A/V receiver. I noticed when I came over to listen to the speakers that they had seemed to lose about 25%-30% of that deep bass response. Even when I used to play the 82's without a sub they still viciously shook the room, but I had mine about 8" off the wall. So I tried to help the situation by changing some of the EQ settings on the receiver, which did help somewhat, but not enough. The speakers are also set to large. So my question is how can he improve the deep bass response without putting the speakers in front of a wall? I thought I heard someone once say that you could put a sock in one of the back ports or tape off one of the ports? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
