Hi to Genelec and Hi Ho! to all Genelec lovers. My story goes like this. ( i will attach pictures). I have regularly acousticaly treated  room but not enough space to put speaker 1 meter space from side walls. (please check my pictures). I have GLM kit and 8350s are calibrated to work that way. Is this big problem? why is it? and what can i do about it? Thanks in advance. Regards to you all! Best regards and bunch of hits! EF

the 1m recommendation is to reduce reflections from the side walls.
To compensate, you could put a very thick panels of mineral wool behind your absorbers at the first reflection ponts.
To find your first reflection points, google for the "mirror trick".
And by thick panels, I mean 30-50 centimeters.

If you decide to do that, come back asking for the type of rock wool, I have the recomendations of my acuistican written down somewhere.
