8040A placement and dip switches?

Youngling Posts: 5 Join Date: 8/2/10 Recent Posts
I use those at home two channel listening only.

I have placed the speakers on stands about 20 cm from the wall behind (partly windows and partly bricks) and there is about 70 cm to to the left side (concrete)wall and 400 cm to right side (concrete)wall! I.e 70 cm from the corner?? Yes, the placement is wrong but that is the best I can do! Dip switces of the right are four db bass tilt and four db bass roll-off. The left one is four db bass tilt. Room size is about 30 m2. The frequencies under 100 hz are stil a bit heavy and a bit too loud!

Do you have any good advice to adjust??

You should try to experiment with even more bass roll-off and tilt. Also try listening the speakers individually and determinate the best room eq settings for each speaker.
