I stumbled upon ambiophonics a few days ago and boy was I blown away! !!
Now, what I would like to know for sure, is how far apart should my speakers and subs should be? Here's a picture of my minimalist system.

Anthem MRX310 AVR, KEF R300 speakers and two JL Audio E112 subs.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Edit: Didn't realize all the fingerprints! Lmao! But, I listen to it soooooo much! Very Happy

welcome party!

I don't have any experience with ambiophonics myself but I recall something about having the speakers side by side
with a board inbetween (to isolate the waves that are coming out), maybe even have them pointing outwards.

Hey, thanks for the welcome, PHOBoS!

I spent the night researching and playing around, watching YouTube videos, with the Google Chrome ambio plugin. I purchased the VST from Electro, but still wating. I know it has to be superior to the Chrome plugin! But, anyway, I am finding out that the recording really matters! I tried putting the speakers together and that worked, but I have to sit really close. It turns out that the way the speakers are in the pictures, that if I stand six feet away, listening to synthwave genre, I am hearing a mind blowing sound-stage with with the subs off and just the KEF's. Well, I can't quite describe what I was experiencing! Only problem is, and why I put the question out here, is that I am hearing most of the incredible sound-stage off to the right hand side. But, I think that might be reflections from the wall. So, I think either prismatic or quadratic diffusers are in order or some absorption panels are in order. Its not really that bad, but it bothers me that the sound-stage is shifted to the right like that. One thing I couldn't help noticing is that, inside the "sound bubble" I heard no room modes and comb filtering, so it seems as though the audio is corrected in that space. I cannot describe how good it sounds! Only in that "sound bubble" area, though!! If I move away, it all goes to mono or sounds weird. Hope my typing wasn't too bad! Its hard to concentrate. Thanks for your valuable reply! Very Happy

Hey, I put more stuff between the speakers and now I've increased the width of the listening area by a lot! I thought it might and it sure did! Now I might just use the bottom amp to biamp the speakers! Check it out it sounds way better now with and without ambiophonics especially the flatness and deep bass response while not using the subwoofer.

All i can say now is that the speakers have completely disappeared and the Soundstage is indescribable!
