Id agree with Liz.....but the effects of placement would depend on the speaker itself. I store my records on shelves in the garage where it gets over 100 degrees in my Arizona sun......never a suggestion of a warp.

Thanks. I guess I’m trying to future proof furniture purchases to the point of obsession. As it is a rented apartment I need to make sure I’m as agile as I can be.
@stringreen I’m in Phoenix and can’t see how they don’t warp. I get Records in the mail and they come prewarped to which I need to flatten to be playable. Crazy.
If you put the shelves up against the wall they are going to be in an area of increased bass. I suppose as long as they do not buzz it would be OK. Unless they are going to cover a large percentage of the front wall they will not act as a wall. If they covered the whole wall they certainly would act as a wall. The variations between records in in the order of a few mm.
That would represent the wavelength of somewhere around 60K so they might dampen frequencies above that but down below 20K forget it. You would still need to find your primary reflections and dampen them.
