listening position

If I have 2 dipole speakers 4 feet from the back wall and 6 feet apart from each other,

ideally, how far away should the listening chair be?  6 feet?

  • Whenever I have a "new" set of speakers in my listening room i start with an equilateral triangle set-up with the two speakers and my listening position making up the three points of the triangle.

    From that position I experiment with moving the speakers slightly farther apart, and moving the listening position forward and backward.

    Your final speaker position will be determined by the acoustics of the room and your own listening tastes.
