You'd have to play it safe with the volume or else you'd end up like a fly on a windscreen {SPLAT}

Meaning that these positions are to be avoided or attempted. Found many articles on the web, but nothing that fully explains how to position to avoid these issues. If thirds andfifths are too be avoided, vertically i want to stay away from 19",32",38"57",and 64". Am i correct in thinking that this is mainly a LF issue?

In the vertical plane? No, it will affect the entire BW to a greater or lesser extent due to how it affects early reflections.

Yep, 3rds, 5ths are most common positions, though recent changes in THX, DD True HD reference LP, speaker system locations may require using higher orders in reference HT apps.

So many folks today sit way too far away from HD systems to get the full benefit of the high resolution available, especially WRT 1080P displays and now there's 4k and higher being developed. Great if you have a small cinema size screen or watch movies < a crooked arm's length away from a computer monitor, but otherwise?

My big beef with HD is it essentially asks people to replace their TV's with already outdated picture quality (1080x1920 soooo last decade) all the time masking the fact that TV programming has gone down the drain and 'blockbusters' are HD drivel with CGI for brains

mmmmmm - thats why we build BIGA$$ speakers!!!

When do your drivers arrive buzzforb? What problems where you having on the audioheritage site?
