    Re: Rear speakers with Beolab 5s

    Razlaw:
    a solid speaker base of granite, or even wood is going to get to be extremely heavy. If the base is not solid, I am afraid it might affect the sound quality?

    What are your floors, suspended or solid with covering ?

    I am guessing you would need to raise your 9's about 8inches give or take depending on your "slouch  height".

    They are wood floors, with carpet, over a basement. I am thinking you are corect about the 8 inches. Mid and bass will still be below the top of the furniture. Could raise them more to get mid up above but then the tweeter might be a bit high.

    Re: Rear speakers with Beolab 5s

    8 inches  of any sort of stone is going to be heavy, but the same in solid wood might be an option....? It need not be oak but if its natural wood make sure its kiln dried to what ever works in your neighbourhood. High density plywood stacked in layers is another option.

    Does the type of wood make a difference? Kiln dried?

    Re: Rear speakers with Beolab 5s

    In my opinion the height of the 9's is really the problem as even with a very low seating position the speakers emit the sound towards the back of your sofa....

    Constructing something like a stand seems like a tough job to me as the 9's have the bass in their base and you need to construct something very solid to avoid the low frequencies being emitted to the stand....

    I would go 5's in the front, 3's in the back... optical fit and you have enough bass from the 5's

    Best regards

    Re: Rear speakers with Beolab 5s

    I am going to do some experimenting with the 9s I have now and see what I think of the sound. I am very intrigued by having matching speakers all around.
