Just wondering how other people think on this matter. Placing various Heritage speakers to optimized the bass response is most of the time not the best placement for imaging and soundstage. Way back before I even knew about the concept of imaging and soundstage, I placed my Klipsch speakers in the corners to get the most bass. That was 40 years ago! Now I place my Klipsch (or any other speaker for that matter) where I get the best 3-D soundstage and specific location imaging results. That means my bass extension is not optimized. No matter though, I have a stereo pair of subwoofers for that. So, what is YOUR priority when it comes to speaker placement. Could be one of the two I mentioned or it could be some other priority entirely.
