    Almost 45 minutes has elapsed, and no one has yet said, "Get 'em away from the wall, and up on spikes."

    Bunch of slackers! :D

    Lol! Got to give the newbie a break! Love it @rebelsoul but for sure back wall spacing is critical, and side to side spacing depending where your listening spot is. Certainly spiking em would help the low end too! For the record, I have not yet spiked any of mine!

    And, it's just me, but I've got this thing about symmetry! :wink:
