Speaker placement Quandary
It's not only distance from the wall, but. how far apart they are, tilt, etc.  The only way to be satisfied is to try everything and choose your best.  I have very heavy speakers too.....the joys of an audiophile

Speaker Cable Recommendation
Nordost is bright.....Cardas is dull.... always buy with return privileges...even if it a bit more.  Find the cable YOU like
