I am proposing this little test. It's simple :)

If you have a set of speakers, try setting them up as below. It doesn't matter if they are "stereo" speakers, computer speakers. In order to keep results as close to consistant as possible, the following guidelines should be adheared to:

-Speakers should be at eye level
-Listening position should be approximately four feet away.
-Initial width should be approximately 24" apart center-to-center
-Close spacing should be approximately 12" center-to-center
-If you have 4 speakers, try the last one. If not, no sweat.

Please post what songs you listened to and what similarities and differences you hear in each configuration. Pay close attention to the different "general" frequency bands (highs, mids, & lows). Pay attention to what happens to the stage width and depth. Pay attention to what happens to the image. Anything you observe is fair game :)

1) typical stereo configuration:


2) typical cross-firing configuration


3) stereo dipole


4) Enhanced sweet-spot stereo


So have at it. lets see what YOUR results are!

Just to make things interesting, once you test, move your listening position (but not speakers) 12 inches to the left :)

I know this test is meant to relate with speaker placement/aiming in a vehicle. Why don't you just simply directly post what you will end up posting to save yourself some time.

Fair enough

response and effect varies with speaker position. The degree of which can be identified through testing

Ambiophonics? Of course. Two years ago, when it was first posted. for all intents and purposes, ambiophonics is a step forward, but for in-car applications, it's impractical
