    Currently 'only' stereo, I have my system set up in my bedroom.
    I have partitioned the room with a wall unit to make a 'room' about 6.5 foot by 14foot long.
    Speakers are on the shortest wall - and hence near to corners.
    I now have boomy bass - I know it is the corner positioning that is coursing it but can I do anything about it??
    Would a heavy material hung behind them help??

    Thanks

    If your speakers have rear ports you could stick something in them, Cloth would be OK.
    B&W speakers supply a plug to stick in them if they are a bit too bassy.

    I got some round foam 'bungs' with my speakers. There's a hole round the back of the same size, and from comments in this forum I tried inserting said bungs into the back of the speakers.

    I was amazed at how much solidity from the bass that I lost. A quite remarkable difference.

    My old Mission 752s have a single hole in the front I think, although I rarely took the grills off so I'm going from a faint memory here.

    Definitely worth a go if your speakers fit a similar description.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Sorry.
    My speakers are B&W 602 and have no rear facing ports.

    Any other ideas?

    try it! duck tape a cushion behind each speaker or to the sides, or just generally anywhere really- experiment see if it changes owt! If it works go buy something more aesthetically acceptable.
