I recently changed up my HT and here it is.....CsiA6 center, RTiA1, and the monster Epik sub below. While the RtiA3s at first made more sense, as you know the center handles the majority of speech and I wanted a minimal amount of stuff to look at (used to have A9s from my previous space). Plus, I scooped up the A1s for 90 bucks like new condition. Anyone see the issue here

    Looks good, but what issue? They are covering part of the screen, if that's what you mean. Looks like they could be out wider anyhow. At least there's plenty of room to do so.

    I need to chop off about 4 inches from the stands to fix that first world problem. Before I do that, I am wondering if the the center should come down one or two clicks on the rack....since it actually sitting about 3 inches back from the screen....is some of the sound from the drivers actually bouncing off the bottom of the screen? Or am I over thinking this like everything else

    I think you're overthinking it. Seems fine to me, but experimentation only costs you time, so try it and decide for yourself. For the L and R, why not just move them a foot wider to each side?

    Re-run your calibration with each move, too.

    This ^^^

    The center, to me, is too far back in relation to the front speakers. Put it on a short stand on the floor between the fronts. Move the fronts a foot wider....done.

    If they can't be wider can you move up the screen? A lot of black at the top looks like it could go up a bit.
    I'd definitely move the center out more.
