Maggie 1.6QR Acoustic Treatment
Advice requested: My Maggie 1.6QRs are placed in front of a living room picture window with wood blinds and a transparent, thin curtain. Speakers are 4-6 feet in front of the window.
As the Maggies are dipolar, is it best to cover the picture window with a thick-fabric curtain, no curtains, or other arrangement? I find the high treble to be harsh and tinny with more-than-moderate volume, i.e., trumpets or tenor sax perhaps a an octave-and-a-half above middle C.
My room is a sloped ceiling, going to 18 feet high, with the speakers at the low end in front of the picture window.
Also, for Maggies, where is it best to locate the component rack? Immediately to the side, in back, or where? I've just read Mr. Harley's book and find certain of his comments ambiguous, although the book is great, overall, and would appreciate comments by anyone who has been down this road already. Thanks, all.
Thanks for any suggestions before I join my wife in curtain shopping.
