Nice speakers!

To complete that set-up, shouldn't those be sitting on some subs?
By those pics... it looks like a pretty "hard" environment lol.

Decided not to sell, as anything I would replace them with would be 10X the price!

That's true.
And still they'd not likely be as good overall. The dynamics and uniform directivity are hard to beat.

Are you running flanking subs? It really was the icing on the cake for me lol.
I've had a few different types of loudspeakers over the years...but none better than the 4pi's!

You should try Wayne's multi sub trick. It takes things up a level or two.

I've been playing with flanking subs and a distributed (rear) sub with a pair of 2 Pi Towers. The addition of the subs, setup as Wayne suggests, takes the sound quality up quite a few notches.

Two of the subs are inexpensive and the other is a REL that I picked up used. There isn't big money in this setup.

Frankly, the towers sound fine against a wall by themselves. But adding the flanking subs helps subdue a few frequency notches and also allows the speakers to be pulled away from the wall. They seem to image a bit better away from the wall and the flanking subs make up for the bass loss and help smooth the bass.

Adding the rear sub further smooths out the bass and makes it cleaner and clearer. It's not a subtle change.

Read Wayne's FAQs. It's really amazing.

I agree with Barryso......the improvement is not subtle.

I would try them approx. where your white boxes are in your pics. Right next to (and behind) your mains. Sometimes outside of them is better, but yours look pretty wide apart.
The trick here is having "two" subs flanking...not just one.....
