    The Monitor Audios have arrived but I need some help in positioning the BFX rears. My room is 5m x 4m with my seating position approx. 1m in front of the back wall. I intend to wall mount the BFXs so do I mount on the back wall or on the side walls level with my seating position?

    Normally I would mount on the back wall but as they are bi-pole units I think I should mount on the side wall. What do you think?

    Hi,

    I would personally put them on the side walls, as you said level with your seating position.

    I have wharfedale dfs bipole rears which I originally had on the back wall, I recently moved them to the sides and definately heard an improvement.

    As a side question I assume you have all Monitor Audio bronze speakers. Which front's do you have and how are you getting on with them?
    I'm considering getting a set myself but don't like bright speakers, so what do you think?

    Hello

    I am surprised the store you brought the speakers from have not advised on a suitable position for them.

    It is very hard to advise on suitable positions without having a good idea on the layout of the room. As a word of advice the BFX speakers can be positioned either behind in Bi-poler mode or to the sides in Di-pole mode. I have generally found that placeing the speakers to the rear is the better option, I would also try and get the speakers approx level with your seating position in terms of height.

    I only got them this weekend, and have so far not had the opportunity to give them a good go. Initial impressions though are they a significant step up from my Kef Eggs, and they are way better for music.
