Yeah, max room gain is when both speaker and LP are at opposing walls. Curious what it's like when the LP is at an odd harmonic closer in or if still too much, at some point between an odd and even harmonic.

I could try some measurements away from the corner, but it will always be in the corner. I promised my wife.

Room gain was less pronounced with a sealed box Q=0.5, but perhaps I overstuffed it.

Understood, just curious since the LP is usually well away from the back wall.

Hang on, you mean change listening position. I thought LoudsPeaker. Not paying attention obviously. I will try it sometime.

Hey Ivo, just curious how they sound now and if you ever tried them out of the corners but up against the wall... Did they still have the bass hump?

They are still changing, apparently still breaking in. I update DSP/EQ every now and then.

All dialed in to approximately flat response, it actually sounds very "normal". There's beautiful coherence and incredible dynamic range, sounds fade away into deep darkness. But overall, you are listening to a very good reproduction of acoustic sound. Or a warm and endless abyss of reggae bass, whatever I am listening. I like it.

I usually get improvement fever very quickly when I build something new, but not so much now. Different material, neater construction. That's it.

The loudspeakers won't move out of their designated corners, there simply is no practical space to move them to. We did just get a new sofa this week, about 2.5 times as big as the last one. It is about 50cm/20 inches further out from the backwall. I will do a new measurement sometime soon and post it here.
