Hi Wayne, my current room is approximately 11.5 ft deep and 14 feet wide, I am forced to sit directly against the back wall and place the speakers along the long wall. The room does have good corners, would corner horns work well in a long wall setup? Could (should?) the mid range bins be toed in greater than 45 degrees to cross their axis in front of the listening position to help with imaging or would one of your other models be better suited to this setup?

Thanks
Troy

As much as I love constant-directivity cornerhorns, I'd probably run three π or four π mains with three π flanking subs and possibly one or two distributed subs in your room.

I've run constant-directivity cornerhorns at each end of a long wall in rooms like that and it sounds good as far as spectral balance. But it usually loses stereo imaging and becomes more of a wall-of-sound. Sometimes you still get imaging but it's artificially separated, distant and wide.
