Installing 1038 monitors horizontally

Youngling Viestejä: 2 Liittymispäivä: 27.7.2010 Viimeisimmät viestit
Good day everybody,

I'm considering purchasing a pair of 1038 main monitors for my new studio which is under construction at present. Due to the height limitation of the ceiling and my attempt to have better directivity, I'm considering flush-wall mounting them. Can anyone let me know if it's a good idea? If yes, is it ok to have the 15" speaker units on the outside? Pros and cons?

I'd appreciate any enlightments. Thanks in advance!

Paul

Hello Paul,

Yes you can install almost all of our speakers both vertically and horizontally. With 1037C and larger it's even easier because the DCW is rotatable. Please see the operating manual, page 3, "Vertical/horozintal mounting", for more information.

The bass drivers are recommended to be on the inside because it will usually produce better coupling and also reduces the effect of room modes (further away from corners). But it's only a recommendation, i.e. outside position will still usually work almost as good.

Thank you so very much, Ikka!

I'll try to re-evaluate and see if we can have the bass drivers on the inside. I'll make sure to post some pics with the 1038 monitors after the studio is completed and running.

Have a great day, Ikka!
