I have added a couple flat speakers to my home entertainment system that I mounted on the walls to the side of my television. When the speakers are in use, I am getting a muffled sound like there is a blanket over the speaker or it sounds like it is in a different room. I think I may have mounted it too close to the wall.

It could be; could you invest in a mount that pushes them out a bit, or would that be too awkward given that they are meant to be "flat" speakers against the wall? I'm surprised that if they are designed to be mounted that way that they wouldn't perform just fine under those conditions, though.

If they are electrostatic speakers as I suspect, it might be an impedance issue.

If that is the case, what would be the best solution for this? I don't have flat speakers but I would surely appreciate if I would have added knowledge on how to fix this kind of problem.

Resistors of some kind.

I have the feeling the amp or the speakers are orphaned from something else.

I found this. This fits the symptoms. The amp might not be able to handle the impedance as well if it is not electrostatic.

There seems to be some confusion about the design type of these speakers, and we can't provide helpful advice without that information. Would you provide a link to a product description.
