Hi all,

I am new here so apologies if this is in the wrong place.

I am currently renting a room and I have very little choice in speaker placement and listening position. The speakers are 5 inch from the wall( although I could increase this by one or two inches) and I am listening while leaning against the back wall. There is about 5m between listener and speaker. Unsurprisingly, there is a lot of boom.

I have no experience in this situation, and would greatly appreciate any help you can give me on how to treat the room – or maybe just putting bungs in the speakers would work best.

plus floor is carpet. Thanks in advance!

I, What you are hearing is speaker boundary interference effect. Pull speakers away from the wall at least 4′.

I’m in a situation where I can’t move the speakers more than 2 inch more, anything else I can do?
