I have seen speaker placement mentioned numerous times here... with staging, imaging and that "sweet spot". Reminding you all that I am that one with the Cerwin Vega D*8s.
In another forum built around Cerwin Vegas speakers. I was trying to see why my right speaker didn't seem as full and detailed and "there" as the left speaker. I wondered if the driver was bad ...etc, etc. In a troubleshooting response, it was suggested that I move my speakers around... So...I went on line and found a fascinating article simply about speaker placement. No news to the group here.https://www.aperionaudio.com/blogs/aperion-audio-blog/2-channel-stereo-speaker-placement
I did move the speakers and I have just experienced one of those moments that keep us in this hobby. It is one of the most basic of all actions dealing with speakers Placement. The results were stunning. All I needed to do was move the speakers away from the walls. I just brought them out more into the room and let the rear ports do what they were meant to do. The left has the rear ports pointed into a hall way/dining room area and the right is symmetrically about 4 feet 6 inches from the corner of the room. It seems that the less-bass-on-the-right-speaker issue is gone. I see that there is that elusive imaging / sound stage element that can come into play,
I feel both grateful and embarrassed with my epiphany. I had no idea how simple physics played into my set up. I have lots of pictures and carpeting and stuff' that aids in the sonics.
My next venture is to see if I can take the CV D8's and place them directly on the floor; they have the "pedestal". I now have them on two matching end tables...about 16 inches off the floor. Since I live upstirs my concern is about the mighty D8's radiating the bass into the floor.
I thought the experienced audiophiles here would get a good chuckle out of my ignorant dilemma turned learned epiphany. Now I do not feel as compelled to retire my CV D8's to the other room and scout out some Klipsch Heritage speakers...which are a dream...on my "Bucket List".
Thanks to all.
I am...a newbie...
