What criteria should be used on the near wall far wall decision on cross over?
In Jim's write up he states :
All of the Statements series designs are to be listened to off axis and positioned pointing straight ahead with 1 ½" of distance from the back of the speaker to the wall behind them. They will work surprisingly well closer but further out is better. The Monitors have gone a step further. Curt waved his magic wand and created not only a far wall version that is designed to be used out into the room but also a near wall version that can be used as close as 12" from the wall to the back of the cabinet.
The 1 1/2" distance is for Statements and the as close as 12" for Monitors, at what distance should I be looking to change to far wall?
