CCB8's on the way.... Do I need to change my layout?
1. How far apart vertically can the L/C/R be before it starts to negatively impact the soundstage on coaxial speakers?
2. How much space do I need behind the center channel ccb8?
Below is a render of my current layout. Room Dimensions are 22x15 with openings to eat in kitchen to the right of the TV and an opening to the hallway to the right of the primary sofa.
At the bottom of the post is current equipment list not including the CCB 8's that are in transit to me now.
My front towers have 12-18 inches of clearance from the wall behind, I have some stands that should put the center of Vertically standing L/R CCB 8s within 2-4 inches of the center position of the center CCB8 when laid out horizontally on the shelf below the TV. This shelf is actually a floating shelf above the stand, below the wall mounted TV and not a 3rd level of the tv stand like in the render.
How important is it for these 3 (L/C/R)to be at the same height?
I'm also concerned with the fact that I'll have less than 2 inches of clearance from the back of the CCB8 center from the wall behind it without modifying the floating shelf my current center resides upon.
*Height speakers are all angled directly at MLP which is far right side of large couch*
Also, any other input about current placements is welcome as well.
Thanks so much!
