A while ago I bought 2 Mirage OS3-FS (front) and 1 OS3-CC (center) for my home theater.

My current issue is that the speakers sound very clear when I'm listening to music at low volume (night time listening volume), I can distinguish every sound on the music. Once I turn the volume up (not blaring loud), the sounds start overlapping and does not sound very clear. I'm not saying it sounds awful, but it seems that the high range gets too mixed up with the mid range.

Omni directional speakers should be at least 3 ft. from any boundary, including the TV. Reflection from boundaries closer than this will cause smearing. Try moving your speakers and give another listen.

It never hurts to add more power, but try this first.

Re: Mirage OS3-FS with Emotiva XPA-3

I initially added an xpa5 to 5 fairly efficient bookshelf speakers. It was a "just cause" purchase, it wasnt a need but rather a want. Not six months later I come across the now defunct av123 speaker set on craigslist. This set loves to play very loud, hearing damage levels here. So for what Im running now, and at the SPLs I run them, I doubt any AVR would be nearly as satisfying or able. Moral to the story is power is flexibility, I doubt power specs on any future processor will ever be a concern no matter the speakers Im running, and thats a priceless feeling.

Re: Mirage OS3-FS with Emotiva XPA-3

Well, I did relocate the speakers leaving about 3 ft in between walls and there was a noticeable improvement in sound quality. The only problem for me, is that now the speakers are too far out.

I wonder if I would get a similar result if I use a sound barrier behind the speaker to prevent the highs from the tweeter bouncing.
