I have a question thay I am hoping I can get some help with. The obvious answer is probably just try it and see how it sounds but I am hoping for some guidance if possibl. I have a fairly small room that is much longet than it is wide. Because of this I cannot spread the L & R speakers out very far apart without getting pretty close to the side walls. The room is 11 ft w x 20 ft long. The speakers are about 1.5 feet off the side walls and about the same from the front wall. My actual seating position is about 2.5 ft off the back wall. What I am noticing is that if I move closer to the speakers it sounds much better. What I think I am hearing is a wider sound field. If I move the speakers farther apart I can widen the sound field but will the reflections from the side walls be likely to cause more problems than I am solving. I guess the other possiblity would be to use less toe in. Currently they are aimed about 2 feet behind me. The speakers are 9.5 ft apart and the midpoint between them is about 16.5 ft from me. Sorry if this is confusing. They are Ascend 340's if it matters. I have 340 Left and Right, the 340 center and 170 surrounds. Thanks for any help.
