Your DALI loudspeakers are designed to convert the incoming electrical signal to acoustic energy as accurate as possible. But speakers are only one link in the audio chain which begins with quality of the recorded material, the capabilities of the playback equipment, interconnects, speaker cables and finally the listening room itself.
Loudspeakers perform best in rooms with normal furnishings such as bookshelves, flowers, vases, and soft furniture. Such as experimenting with loudspeaker positioning will impact the sound image, so will moving your furniture position. Try to avoid large, flat surfaces near the speakers which could create unwanted early reflections at the listening position.
If the sound is on the bright side, try experimenting with loudspeaker or furniture positioning. Rugs or carpets will damp unwanted reflections from a hardwood floor, while acoustic panels limit the amount of sound waves that bounce of the walls.
The quality and quantity of perceived bass depend on the size and shape of the room. Experiment with various positions. Bass will be reinforced by placement near side or rear walls. Corner placement offers substantial bass boost. Find the position that offers the best balance of sound for your room and musical tastes.
When you have found the best position, make sure that the speaker is level and do not rock back and forth. Spikes may be used to couple the speaker more effectively to the floor and leveling out the loudspeaker. Spikes are especially recommended on surfaces with thick carpeting. Spikes will generally tighten up bass response and sharpen the focus of the stereo image.
