GdnrBob Posted October 3, 2022 Share Posted October 3, 2022 My home office is tight for space. So, I have placed the VLR's near the upper corners of my room (10x10, yeah, I know. and There is a lot of stuff to absorb/reflect/diffuse). To be honest, I quite like the sound that comes from them.- I can listen upstairs and not feel the need to turn on the main system(Treo's). Now, to my question, as the speakers are near the ceiling, I have them angled downward and canted toward my listening position (which is nearer to the right side, actually very close to the right). So, if I am angling them inward/downward, am I loosing time/phase coherency? John Rutan said I should point them forwards(which should address one part of the problem of phase/time coherency-up/down), but I feel I lose a lot of the upper frequencies- which I hear when I point them more towards me. I am considering pointing them downwards (facing forward), but will need to change speaker mounts (I'll need to drill into the cabinet to support them). I would imagine time and phase would be preserved as long as I don't tilt them one way or another, but wanted to ask beforehand, and ,as I am not in the center position and I don't have a balance on my preamp, I wonder if it will be worth it? And, I hate to drill my speakers, if I can avoid it. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
