As I mentioned earlier kinda, it seems you are doing your best to work with the stuff you have but it seems a bit like trying to fit a C5 cargo plane into a Submarine. It might could be done but to what end.
The "end" is I get to keep the Revels instead of the B&Ws. No brainer. My current plan is to find a new room for them before I die!

Upon reading your post several times I think it comes down to placing your chairs in the room at the back wall and then fitting or removing everything else so as to provide you with the sound you like....as best can be expected of course.
It seems obvious you and your wife like to watch movies together so FIRST and FOREMOST make the room fit your hobby not the other way around. If album racks have to move out, so be it, if the equipment has to be moved forward...so be it
That room is the albums' home. Without it they are, well... homeless. The original plan was to have my favorites converted to digital format and sell them. It took about 3 months to finish only 15% of them. Now that project is on hold until after new carpeting is installed in the living room. Then I can reassemble the required gear. Anyway, the albums are there to stay. I'll definitely experiment with your suggestion to pull some of them out a little at random intervals so as to create a diffuser effect.

. . . use placement and your dirac to make the sound acceptable or even likeable.
Jack, Jack, Jack. I don't expect perfection. Are you under the impression that very good SQ and SS&I are not possible in my room? But I've witnessed just that. My previous set up developed respectable SQ and convincing SS&I. I'm certain I can do better with this renovation. Time-domain measurements will help identify reflections which rob the system of good SS&I.

Not at all Lumen, I would expect you to obtain good SQ and SS&I in that room, albeit there may be little to no soundstaging/imaging outside the speakers themselves. That of course does not in any way preclude obtaining good sound in the room. It is hereby your sword duty to wring every ounce of goodness from your equipment in the Green Room. Others have done so with worse rooms.

Good Listening

Now you've gone and done it: making me understand! Too bad you had to draw me a picture, though.

You're right, of course. It's physically impossible to get a decent spread between the mains with the walls in the way! And speakers less than three feet from a boundary will have both bass and imaging issues. If we were staying there, I'd seriously consider knocking down the adjoining bedroom one.

With things being as they may, I'd like to try my hand at measurements with help from the fine folk here at HTS. It may not get the system where I'd like it to be, but it just has to be better than tuning by ear. It's just gotta!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, and for reminding me listening is as important as measuring, if not more so. That last comment may invite a barrage of opposing viewpoints, but what's progress without controversy? It would be boring if everything were easy.

I believe that with the proper TLC, very good SQ and SS&I are possible in any room.

You're an inspiration!
I now have newfound confidence, and will be starting my measurement regimen this weekend after getting the new HT seats situated. If you like, check out the delivery here.

Some of us are brave.......but broke. I guess that is the 3 B syndrome, Brave But Broke.

Good Listening
