Thanks for the advice folks.
ive had and loved PMC and Wilson, both ported but different. Now getting used to WAR Audio speakers (sealed enclosure). More bass slam, chest thumping stuff but still experimenting with placement. I think LogicPrObe may be right about the power. I’m using a Magnus Audio MA-300 amp. This gives an accurate and dynamic sound. Is there a rule of thumb that ported speakers do well further from the wall and sealed speakers closer to the wall or doesn’t matter too much re placement . I think I may be placing them like ported, too far out.
