    Updated pic with my new 900F and HSU VTF-2 MK5 sub. Nice improvement over the PSW505. Wife was not happy about the size of it, lol.

    See if you can try this.

    Move the right speaker out to the light switch, put the plant between the speaker and stand. Swap the left speaker and sub.

    Like your setup VTF subs are great with the tuning. I have mine with 4" port open EQ2 and Q @ 5.5.

    I can't move the right speaker over as there is a sofa you don't see in the picture, it's a narrow space there. I usually have the speakers further forward, but moved them back for the holidays.

    BTW, I appreciate all of the advice. That room is smaller than I would like for it to be and I'm very limited to what I can do in that room. My next house if there is one will have a larger main room so I can be more flexible in my setup. That room is the main thing I don't like about our house.

    Here's a picture of what I mean.

    I'd try it anyway see how it is once done. Once it's toed in a tad it might not be that bad. Are you able to at least swap the sub and left speaker?

    Trust me I know a lot about the WAF when placing speakers.

    Problem is a chair goes when the tree is so there isn't much room. When the tree goes down after the holidays I'll see what I can do, but I think it might not look good and you know how my wife will feel about that.

    The jury is still out. The idea was to replace both of the other subs while gaining some extension and perhaps output. (I was using the Martin Logan just for 2 channel coming out of the peachtree and the SVS just for LFE; but the ML was always on and made the Dynaudio's full range which also helped with HT). I am still dialing it in for both. I definitely like it better for music as it fills my large family room (that spills into kitchen and living room) better. I think I finally just about have it dialed in, so hopefully will get to watch a good movie on it this weekend to really test it out...

    Gots me a rack. I have been swapping between the SDAs and the ERA bookshelves. Those bookshelf speakers are killers, obviously they can't touch the SDAs in overall presentation but they are great in their own way.

    ERA/Peachtree Audio Design 5s. I won them in a Karma from TonyB, they are a fun speaker and SOAK up power. They pump out some serious bass for their size, it took me by surprise. They can almost keep up with the SDAs on bass output. The high end is a little laid back which I like, the differences between the two speaker models keeps things fun switching back and forth.

    I took this picture this afternoon after the great home theater renovation of 2018, which included a new wall mount for the TV, 100’ of split loom cable tubing, roughly 1,000,000 zip ties, and various other tweaks. It also includes the PS4 that I acquired back in November.

    I think you should have splurged for 1000001 zip ties. Doesn't look quite right. 😉
