Speaker Placement

How do you have your speakers placed?  Are they on stands? How far away from the wall? etc.  Thanks

I would not put the Jagers on stands.  They seem to do best almost against the back wall.

Download a free copy of room eq wizard. Use the room modeling software to play with the location of the speakers. This worked very well for me when I first set up the prototype Jagers. Indeed as PB says the position was close to the front wall. But that was more about getting the best response for the room shape I was in than being a universally recommended position for all Jagers. I plan to model our big new room at the new BHQ the same way to start working out my Jager placement.

Thanks for the info, Paul and Doc.  Any current owners thoughts, just curious. I have been experimenting with placement and so far found closer to the wall is better and also have tried facing straight out and toed in a little works.  Will try downloading the SW Doc recommended.  Thanks

I have tried various placements of my speakers; I noticed that leaving the Jagers on the carpet the sound seemed flat.(room size 20x20)
I found that close to the wall, toed in and on stands facing up at a slight angle, the music sounds great. The Jagers are braking in even more.
I built the stands for the Jagers and the rack for equipment.

Did you luck out and end up with that tile floor from an old wood stove, or did you put that in just for the audio rig?

Thanks Doc.
The tile floor was intended for a wood stove. Now it is for my rig. Thanks PB
