Yes scottjoplin it is near the backwall.

No bicicletta, not open baffle the idea was to use the 2 front corner walls as part of a closed box of about 80 litres so I would only need the front baffle and the top to make a cabinet.

Regards, Veeren

Where the sound wave isn't moving, i.e. near a wall, pressure can build up, this is probably what you are feeling, try moving your listening position away from the wall.

From my experience, the unfortunate circumstance is that there's not much place to move in a small room, i.e. listening position can be "stuck" near a wall and one have to live with it. Now, some speakars can sound better in such occasions, some worse. Now I am using an OB (but they too need a fair distance from the wall). I have another set od Diy Omni speakes which proved to sound good in such small rooms....

It is good that those 80l are sealed, so, IMO, it is more convenient to build a 6-wall box.
I like the Vix's solution.
