What happens if "nearfields" (TR8XL's) are used from 15-17 feet away, and 8 feet up?
I haven't been listening to my mixes through my usual Event TR8 XLs lately as the small bedroom I had previously occupied as my "music room" is temporarily unavailable. I was wondering if it would be worth putting them up there as well? ... or are they called "near fields" for a good reason ... not expected to work well for mixing unless one is 3-4 feet away in the usual set up ... and the results would be expected to be quite unhelpful in making mixing decisions?
And there's more: if it's thought it would be worth a try to put the Event TR8 XLs up there, they would have to be laid horizontally to fit in the bookshelf. In that circumstance, would the tweeters be better toward the center, or out to the outside?
Thanks for any suggestions!
