|I have never found that my Maggies are so sensitive to positioning as suggested by many users. Perhaps it is because I have three (not two), the room is very asymetrical, and full of randomly placed furniture unlike the dedicated "listening room". I pull them out a few feet from the wall when I am listening seriously, and that's about it.|
However, I just moved them about six inches, and it made a big difference. The secret is that I moved them straight up...off the floor.
I have known for decades that Maggies sound best when suspended from a high ceiling, but that option is not available. What I did is put 1X6 oak boards, on edge, under the metal Maggie feet. This raises the speaker about six inches, and provides open space under them. I am not sure why the improvement happens but here are a few ideas.
1. The open space under the speakers.
2. The speaker is more equally spaced to the ceiling and the floor.
3. The speakers being higher, furniture obstucts less.
