I now have had all 3 configurations in my setup. I hope to show, through empirical evidence (measurements), what differences (if any) have come from each. There'll be subjective listening impressions as well.

In general though, a lot of the proof of the bass pudding is in the measurements. Stay tuned.

The additional pair of subs will be going up high on the rear walls, above the diffusers and close to the ceiling. Supports for those are currently under design/construction. Will post measurements after they've been integrated in their final position.
 
Perfect for audiophiles wanting both excellent music quality and flexible operation.
