I do understand I've been in the audio business for over twenty five years was co designer with Hales Design Group. All of what you are talking about is the inherent problem of a Dipolar/Panel speaker aweful off axis response vertical and horizontal. When you have a friend over he has to have the sweet spot to get the best sound. I have buddies over all the time I have a big room we never worry about where we sit we just listen to music and not play musical chairs. Having to deal with a back wave is a bitch. That is why I'm not a panel fan you turn your head slightly sound changes rolls off. Move up or down slightly sound changes. Not to mention the problem with dynamics. Panels are a one person speaker nothing wrong with that if you want to constantly fiddle with the speaker. and stay completely still like a zombie.If you don't understand technical concepts, it's ok to just admit that and defer to those who do. Trying to make fun of science simply because you don't understand it just kind of makes you look pathetic. Especially on a forum like this where there are quite a few technically-savvy individuals.
I've got 16 years of experience working with and listening to over half a dozen models of ML speakers, experimenting with positioning them in multiple rooms and sound systems, and using bare walls, diffusion and absorption behind them. I'm offering the OP solid advice that is based in science and experience on how to deal with a well known property of ML speakers - the back wave of a dipolar speaker. You come into this thread with less than a dozen posts on the forum and and all you offer is: no one can say because they haven't heard the room.
Do you and rur really enjoy music or is it just big words and terminology. I find it funny how a little joke got your panties all in a wad. And again being a speaker that you have to attend to the back wave of sound and room placement are more critical. I can remember when the ML rep came to my shop Audio Insight in Plano Tx and we had the Grand Utopias with the Levinson mono blocks the Logan's sounded way better in our room way out in the room. In the exact place we had the Utopias. When the rep wanted them closer to the wall but he agreed they did sound better out and away from the wall. Far away from the back reflection. After he spent i kid you not 3 hours of dicking around with placement another problem with panel speaker can't just put them down and get even decent sound. So my only point is numbers and physics are alway there your right. But it does not mean that it will work out that way. BECAUSE EVERY ROOM IS DIFFERENT SO IF YOU TELL PEOPLE ONE CERTAIN WAY YOU ARE GIVING THEM BAD ADVICE BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER TRULY EXPERIMENT WITH ROOM PLACEMENT. YOU NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU TRY!!!!! So get off the high horse help people. Sometimes the so called right way may not be the best way.
