Reference Monitor Placement


Allen Hallada

I am setting up my new Hafler TRM 8s and I ran into a dilemma. I purchased some Omnistudio mounts for bottom mounting and attached the mounts to the wall. How high can I place these monitors? Can I put them above my head and then tilt them down and still get the same imaging as setting them flat? Any problems with sound this close to the wall (6-12")? What is the ideal distance between speaker-speaker and speaker-listener?
Thanks everyone and great forum here.

PS. These monitors rock with the TRM 12 subs!

I have my speaks set up to be an equallateral triangle btween me-left speak-right speak then me again.
works rather nicely.
as far as tilting goes...I dunno, I guess just do what sounds correct, I don't have mine set up that way.
