Default angled on wall mounting

Hi all!!

I have a question about wall mounting speakers at an angle (~30deg.). I've attached a pic with some dimensions of my living room and the entertainment unit with my proposed speaker setup.

This is meant for music and HT until I can get my basement setup properly.

-on the wall would be something similar to Zaph's Aura design (maybe a bit bigger)
-directly underneath a stereo subwoofer setup
-and/or maybe elsewhere a real big sub

What I'm wondering about is the interaction of the wall mounted speaker and the wall? I searched and couldn't find anything relevant.

Hi,

Twin (mono) subs ~1/3 along each wall would probably work well.

I would use Zaph design as its specifically for wall mounting.

Later on (in the basement) you can transfer them to the rear.

thanks,sreten.

though what I'm really wondering about is how the speaker and wall will interact at a ~30deg angle.

Would you still need bsc?
How will reflections affect the sound?
And if I build Zaph's design, the speaker would be facing the wrong way, no?...unless changing the angle of the box is irrelevant.)

Plus while Zaph's design is neat, I don't want to order $10 of tweeter and pay $20 shipping So I'm looking at other options. I'm sure i can find the info somewhere, but just having moved to my new house (yay!), I have little time to look.

Hi, I was assuming you would use the normal left speaker on the right and vice versa, /sreten.
