least give us some credit for consistency!
Well, no, you are more surgical that time. ;) İ give you credit for helping
Also you found the problem of the current speakers, this 110hz problem. İ didnt know and its a new clue.

check the klipsch RP-160m. They have better sensitivity. also i have a promotion with the current model.
that svs speakers is double price.

or this. But it will be in the corner with 5cm from left wall.and 12-13 frpm rear wall
Yes, I already commented on that. I think the RP160s will definitely be a noticeable step up from what you have. They're nice speakers for the price. They will have some more bass too. I know the Ultras are on the pricey side for you. They're just a better case scenario. They'd be a nice step up from the RP160.

As far as it being in that corner it doesn't matter (with very few esoteric or compromised exceptions) what speaker you buy. If you stick it in a corner like that it's not going to sound the way it was designed to.

Don't make me go through that thread and start pulling up quotes! Number one thing I said in the last thread was what you should do first is position your speakers better and get a better subwoofer. What was the first thing I said in this thread?

Just so I'm clear, you need to work on your speaker positioning and get a better subwoofer. Bass is at the crux of your problem. You brought it up in the last thread and you're bringing it up here. Getting new speakers may help with midrange and clarity but not your bass. Get a better subwoofer.

Nothing i can do on that. The only place is there. They are already too close the two speakers. The right speaker will go on a base, the other, the Left i think no, it will stay on furniture. (İf i put base there it will come close to wall)
one spealer on base is this ok? And left stays in the place u ser now and you dont like.
i cant push the tv, it comes forward if i do. And makes statics to sound

when i first bought them, i placed left speaker more left from that you see now, the more left i could. believe it or not, sometimes i was hearing a small echo! Like caves. Unbeliavable

Well then I'd say we're right back to where we were at the end of your last thread. You gotta change something. We can't convince your current subwoofer and speakers to sound any better than they are... especially if you're going to insist on partially handicapping them with the setup.

I'm saying you are crippling your setup with bad speaker placement right now, yes. Also, what you have now could be better. Better subwoofer and better speakers. So think about it. The speakers and subwoofer aren't as good as you'd hoped. PLUS you're stuffing them in a corner which will make them sound worse.

I think a better subwoofer would be the biggest improvement that you would hear the most, given your specific situation. Especially if you put it in a good spot and give Audyssey a chance by taking careful measurements. So... subwoofer!

After that better speaker placement and better speakers. I think the RP160s are nice and I think you will like them. They will most likely sound better than what you have, but still be handicapped by placement and you will still be dissatisfied with your bass if you get them first.

@killbill13 did you intend to rate my last post "dumb"? I have a few "dumb" ratings on my profile already. I might have even earned one or two of them, but I'm not seeing it here...

Well poop. I guess I'm just gonna have to learn how to cope with being dumb.

I should go shopping for expensive cables. It's completely justified now.

I gave you my suggestions for what to do! Move that whole entertainment stand as far right as you can, there's some room there before the doorway. That will really help with giving your left speaker more room.

Ah, okay! I didn't think I deserved a dumb rating that time!

I don't know why the box is dumb, but it is. That's what it means.
